Like the Tarantino of beats, DJ Format seeks out lost musical odds and ends, splicing and pasting favorite moments together to create future hip hop with a classic feel.

His debut album ‘Music For The Mature B-Boy’ is one of the slow-burn success stories of 2002. An album of soulful, funk fuelled hip hop packed with infectious beats and lyrical dexterity featuring Jurassic 5 (We Know Something You Don’t Know), Abdominal, Sureshot La Rock and others.

With a new album on its way, DJ Format now hooks up with The Find Magazine for Find The Format, a brand new mix full of old school bangers, digging treasures and fresh slept-on hip hop.

DJ Format: “I like to play a lot of records that mean something special to me or I feel have been overlooked. In example, I don’t think many people would choose to hear a song by Mellow Man Ace. But with a mix like ‘Find The Format’ hopefully people will enjoy it and be pleasantly surprised by some songs!”
