Elite Force: Revamped

March 8, 2010 by DJ Elroy

“I decided to embark on a whole new extension of the re-edit idea looking at creating a number of brand new tracks out of components taken from older tunes… proper mash-ups. Some were born out of simple live jams that evolved into finely tuned studio creations, whilst others were ground-up rebuilds where I was effectively writing new pieces of music using samples from other tracks. There was no fixed way of working and no sacred cows that went un-plundered.” [Elite Force]

The long-awaited ‘Revamped’ album from mashup supremo Elite Force, is finally with us. With a list of Revamped artists that include Wolfgang Gartner, The Propellerheads, Plump DJs, Datsik, Vandal, Calvertron, Stanton Warriors, Meat Katie, Daniele Papini, Popof, Bar9, Bassbin Twins, Dylan Rhymes, Hatiras & Classixx (amongst many more), these re-workings are often closer to new productions than simple edits, a point made very eloquently by iDJ who observed that ‘we have entered a whole new paradigm in mashupology’ with the release of this album.

The buzz around Revamped has been immense, with 5 star reviews in many of the major magazines and blogs, radio support from Eddy Temple-Morris, Lauren Laverne, Kissy Sell-Out, Jay Cunning, The Loose Cannons, Rob Da Bank, Annie Nightingale and Nick Grimshaw, two #1s on Hypem with the Prevamped series of free downloads, a Beatport #1 for the first single ‘Party Phenomenon’ (within 48-hours of release), and a series of major headline slots worldwide that included massive shows at Breakfest (Perth), Burning Man (Nevada) and the Olympic Stadium (Sevilla) amongst many others!
