About the event

Dj Format will be bringing his unique skills and musical style to  Quarterhouse this spring. The title of his 2003 debut album says it all:  Music For The Mature B-Boy. That’s DJ Format for you, boiled down to  the essence. He’s the grown up producer/beatmaker who, admittedly,  spends far too long digging for bafflingly scarce records to sample and  play in clubs. 

Format’s six artist albums, featuring rap  heavyweights like Jurassic 5, Edan, Mr Lif, Phill Most Chill, and of  course long-time collaborator, Abdominal, have been called some of the  highpoints in UK hip hop. His skill in compiling albums and crafting  mixtapes have seen him enlisted by the good people at FabricLive, Fania,  BBE, and Mr Bongo for his unique selections of funk, Latin soul, heavy  psych, and Brazilian Tropicalia respectively.  More recently a string of  cut ‘n’ paste 45s have kept his name in DJs’ boxes. These tributes to  the likes of James Brown, Kool & The Gang, and The Meters, are as  funky as they were labour-intensive to put together.
