Dj Format

Dj Format - The Work's Just Dried Up
Comming Soon...............

DJ Format AKA Matt Ford's debut album “Music For The Mature B-Boy” is one of the slowburn success stories of 2002. An album of soulful, funk fuelled hip hop packed with infectious beats and lyrical dexterity, it delivered in spades on the promise of his early releases for Mo' Wax and Bomb Hip Hop. Received with quiet acclaim in the press it quickly became a word of mouth triumph, going on to establish itself as one of the most successful debut artist album’s in UK hip hop/alternative urban/dance scene.

Talk with my turntables....

Psycho Pab (Ex-Psychonauts)
'David Holmes - Free Association (DJ Mix)'
Musical Messenger Mix
A rare Mix LP produced by Psycho Pab from the Psychonauts, released in very limited numbers. This also had a release on CD with a explanation in the tracklisting describing what the mix is all about.
Anyhow .. it's an incredible eclectic mix from Hip Hop to Progressive Rock featuring vocals from Sioban Fahey, the mixing as you would expect is quite something.

'DJ Format - Music For The Mature B-Boy (Album Sampler DJ Mix)'

'Never Never Land' Promo Mix CD
Where The Wild Things Are'
A rare promo mix CD with Futura artwork limited to 200 copies, of which 62 were given to Rough Trade in London.
This isn't a bad mix but could have been so much more, a lot of the tracks have featured on other compilations like the Fabric Live CD.

'Edit Music For A Film (After Dark Prologue)'
James Lavelle put together a mix of soundtracks from films that inspired him the most Released as a promo CD, it was sent out as an invite for the Stella Artois After Dark 2004 festival of films shown across the country.

DJ Danger Mouse (Gorillaz MixTape)

Roadkill - The Mixtape
New Link For Stew (Z-Trip Board)

Extremely rare Gorillaz mix tape. While the title suggests it was mixed by Gorillaz' fictional animated drummer Russel Hobbs, in reality, it was mixed by Demon Days producer DJ Danger Mouse. CD-Rs of the mix were given away at a few Kid Robot stores to customers who bought the Gorillaz action figures. It's one track, 22:25 continuous minutes of what can only be described
as a hip-hop masterpiece. The concept is that Danger Mouse only mixed music together from artists who have explicitly worked on Demon Days (The Jemini song was originally produced by Danger Mouse, so he counted that). This thing is fantastic.


Herbaliser @ FabricLive 26
Comming Soon......................

Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba have worked together for over a decade. They heard about each other at college: Jake was getting a rep with various bands and Ollie was busy collecting records and trainers. Years passed before they started making tracks, but within months of doing so they had been signed to Ninja Tune, just as the hip hop/jazz breaks sound was about to explode.
'Fabriclive 26' flies by in a hip hop heat haze. Ollie and Jake perform turntable gymnastics, throwing down bumping rhythms and energetic joints and mixing up the rare, the obscure, the loved and the lost. This is an irresistible, addictive and infectious mix, blending the past, present and future of body rocking, dancefloor sounds.

Cut Chemist & Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5)

Live @ The Variety Arts Centre 1997
Link Removed.................

Legendary live DJ set action from way back in 1997 from the Jurassic 5 allstar duo Cut Chemist and Nu-Mark. A chock full forty minute exercise in vinyl heaven, blending the finest in classic hip hop from the golden age, killer scratch routines, fun interludes, live restagings of Chem's Lesson 6 with new angles drawn - all sound familiar, yep!!! We got ourselves another Brainfreeze on our hands here, equally enjoyable, fresh and downright funky to the max, check the Knight Rider action, hype and the Superman section - Laurie Anderson over a dope beat.

Scratch Perverts

Live @ Blue Room Mix 25/12/2003

The Scratch Perverts are generally acknowledged as some of the finest and most influentual turntablists ever. They have contributed countless techniques and pioneered radical innovations in developing the skills and possiblities that can be achieved on a turntable. As a team, they have won two consecutive World DMC Team titles; Prime Cuts also won two consecutive World ITF titles, and Plus One won the World DMC Champion and World Vestax Champion titles. Having become so dominant, they have now retired indefinitely from competition.

James Lavelle (

Live @ Tribal Gathering 1996

JAMES LAVELLE, who formed Mo'Wax while still in his teens as an antidote to the increasingly stale acid jazz/Northern Soul scene. Stripping the music down to its barest of essentials -- bass, percussion, minimal samples and heavy effects -- the Mo'Wax sound (best exemplified by the second Mo'Wax label comp, Headz, as well as its sequel, the two-part Headz 2) quickly gained respectability and a large audience.
