DJ Format feat Abdominal and D-Sisive: plus Little Barrie

Wednesday 04 May 2005 - Caf

Tickets 10 (6.75 concessions & regulars)

Doors Open: 9pm

Show Starts:

DJ Formats 'Vinyl Overdose' track on the 'Return Of The DJ Volume 2' compilation album released in 1997, introduced him to the world albeit part of a compilation his first solo release bringing him to the world's attention.

After a stint with UK group Suspekt in 1995, Format carried on when the group fizzled out due to geographical reasons (one half of the group in Derby, the other half on the South coast) and through a friend hooked up with Dave Paul @ Bomb Hip Hop Records in the US. After contributing the aforementioned 'Vinyl Overdose' to 'Return Of The DJ 2', the two of them stayed in touch and Dave released Format's debut single, the much-loved 'English Lesson' with a remix of 'Vinyl Overdose' called 'Vinyl Vasectomy' on the flip.. "I just wanted to do a track that used all my fast breaks, because that's what I loved. I didn't have a name for it, it was just a little track I was putting together and I think I just decided to call it 'English Lesson' as a bit of a pun - not because I thought it was worthy to be anything like DJ Shadow's 'Lesson 4' or Double Dee and Steinski's 'Lessons' series... I didn't want to invite myself into that 'exclusive club', if you like. It was just my cheeky little pun! I'm just an English guy and this is my lesson and maybe no-one's gonna acknowledge it - but, as it turned out, most people were pretty kind about it!

2003 and 'Music For The Mature B-Boy' is Format's debut album. A full serving of his funky flair and unique sense of humour (check-out the skits in between tracks) the album proves a substantial collection of tracks and songs. In between the kind of instrumental & cut up gems he's famed for there's a clutch of MC collaborations with rappers from Toronto, Los Angeles and the UK keeping things hot throughout.
