Ok must give our big apologies to our buddy sHack aka ELITE FORCE & ZODIAC CARTEL for the lateness of this post as we’ve had this stuff for a couple of weeks but only just got around to posting!
1. LOOPS OF FURY
Brisbane-based crew, The Loops of Fury, had a stellar 2009. The dynamic duo shot to attention with their huge ‘Flick A Switch’ single which reached the Beatport Top 3 and spent a cool 2 months inside the Top 30 making it one of U&A’s biggest sellers to date.
Since then they have remixed Dirty Super Car (for Plump DJs new ‘Grand Hotel’ label), Mike Hulme, Meat Katie, Dylan Rhymes & Elite Force and delivered not one, but two awesome slices of next-level electro-techno as singles for U&A. The first of these, ‘SOAP’ is out this week on Beatport with a fine, fine pair of remixes from Peo de Pitte and Hatiras (from the legendary Hatrax label).
The boys have also put together a 30-minute promo DJ mix which showcases some of their finest productions alongside some of their future classics and live mashups.

3. ELITE FORCE MEETS EDDY TENPOLE TUDOR-MORRIS
Here’s what he says:
Something very different for you here and a project I had a lot of fun (and head-scratching) in putting together for The Remix, Eddy Temple-Morris’s excellent long-running show ‘The Remix’ on XFM.
The brief was simple – to create a 10-minute mix featuring a minimum of 10 of your ALL-TIME favourite songs (from any genre). Once I started to get my head around it I was gutted by how many tracks I wanted to include but failed to find the time or space … as it was I managed to fit 30 of my all-time favourite tracks in there. Download link is at the foot of the tracklist …
01 philip glass – cloudscape
02 joy division – the eternal
03 primal scream – higher than the sun (weatherall mix)

05 spiritualized – goodnight goodnight
06 pavement – box elder
07 iggy & the stooges – 1969
08 radiohead – planet telex (depthcharge mix)

13 massive attack – a prayer for england
14 underworld – luetin
15 primal scream – kowalski
16 ronnie size & reprazent – brown paper bag
17 elbow – station approach
