Right now there's one guy who you just can't avoid . . . and for good reason!
Not only is the epic Elite Force Boat Party 2012 merely days away, but this week Mr Simon Shackleton has also released the final track in his monster, 18 track, free RVMPD2 EP!
Each week for the last 18 weeks we've waited with baited breath (and a bit of a semi) for the next instalment, which has seen Elite Force add his finishing touches to tracks from Doctor P, Mord Fustang, Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Wolfgang Gartner, Flux Pavilion, Stanton Warriors, Flinch and Skrillex, and to be honest, there isn't a bad one amongst them! There are, however, a few that stand out as particularly awesome, so the following come highly recommended by Funk and Filth:
- Got 2 Know This Way (RVMPD) - Flux Pavilion, Ajapai, Nero
- Rumour (RVMPD) - Adele, Elite Force
- Watch Out (RVMPD) - Doctor P, Elite Force
The last of these three was so good that it featured in our Sound Dock Roadtest earlier this year - great production and a beastly bass line!

Now, I mentioned a little boat party a minute ago didn't I?! Well, the 2011 boat party was little short of immense, and the 2012 instalment of bass, beats and boat is on the horizon . . . . and promising to smash the shit out of last year's dangerously big night! Evil Nine are joining Shack aboard the Dutch Master River Cruiser (bigger boat than last year!), and with an after party line-up that includes Peo De Pitte, The Loops of Fury, The Freestylers, Warrior One and Jurassik, you can see why the excitement levels are so high!
If you're quick enough (and lucky enough) you might be able to grab one of the last remaining tickets here, otherwise you may have to wait for the inevitable Funk and Filth review in a couple of weeks once we've all recovered. While you wait for the carnage report, enjoy this free download of Elite Force's set from the 2011 boat party to see what the noise is all about.
Luckily Jitesh from Hybridesque Photography was there to photograph the night, check out his awesome album right here, plus a selection of his shots at the bottom of this post.
