DJ FORMAT | Future Yard

We are thrilled to host DJ Format behind the Future Yard decks on Friday 26th April, bringing with him an unrivalled mastery of the break and a sound influenced predominantly by golden age hip hop of the late 80s and early 90s.

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 live for, well, you.

His six artist albums, featuring rap heavyweights like Jurassic 5EdanMr LifPhill 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 FabricLiveFaniaBBE, and Mr Bongo for his unique selections of funk, Latin soul, heavy psych, and Brazilian Tropicalia respectively.

Format’s DJ sets are like long form versions of these productions –  meticulous on the execution and built on the deep crates he’s spent years building.

Catch him behind the decks on Argyle Street soon, his high-octane sets of soul, funk, Latin, and feel-good hip hop, have rocked spots the world over. And he’s never happier than when he gets the chance to share his music with people just like you.

DJ Rasp and Dub Defenders supports. Dub Defenders host after-party in the bar.
