Brooklyn British Invasion: Elite Force to Perform in May
For one night only this coming May, DJ Elite Force has crossed the pond to join up on stage with Horizon Wireless, Luis Campos, PONY, and Narkatta to drop the beat for your listening pleasure.
DJ Elite Force — known to his mother as Simon Shackleton — started his first band, Headless Chickens, while a student at Exeter University, and has been on the music scene ever since. He is one of the original proponents of the tech-funk movement, and has had music featured in major films like “The Matrix,” “Mortal Kombat” and this writer’s personal cult favorite, “The Bone Collector.” This cache of films is only in addition to his already prolific repertoire of music used in computer games (and no less than 5 FIFA tracks.) Elite Force’s prowess resides in his innate ability to wrangle the often-warring factions of breakbeat, electro house, and techno to form an inexplicably cohesive sound that is a magnetic force towards the dance floor. Having been around since 1990, when he broke in by playing student nights and acid-house sets in south west England, Elite Force has traversed the world in shows that dot the globe, and hit up the biggest names in festivals (Glastonbury, Coachella, Burning Man, the list goes on…)
Now he’ll be here in Brooklyn for one night this spring, Friday, May 9th for a 21+ show — and you’d be a fool to miss it.
