Elite Force – From The Vaults Mixtape

elite force header


Yet another Retro set this time from the legendary Elite Force one of the leaders of the early 2000’s Nuskool Breaks days. Some gems throughout this mix, tunes you may remember, reworks and quite a few unreleased tracks.

” This set was originally put together for Raveart Producciones’s Retro Festival in Southern Spain which primarily focuses on OLD skool breakbeat sounds. On the night, my set was *badly* hampered by major monitoring issues in the booth, so I spent the following day re-creating the mix as I’d intended it to sound.

I hope you enjoy it (there are several unreleased tracks in there you may never have heard before). “ – EF
