DJ Format is back.. and this is his STATEMENT OF INTENT! The album boasts vocal collaborations with the likes of EDAN, MR LIF,PHILL MOST CHILL and SURESHOT LA ROCK as well as musical collaborations withTHE NOSTALGIA 77 QUINTET and THE SIMONSOUND. The music ranges from Old School Rap to Psychedelic Rock and more than ever before reveals Format's wide and varied musical influences beyond Hip Hop and Funk.
Statement.. sees Format exploring Jazz & Blues with Nostalgia 77,Spaced-out electronic B-boy jams with The Simonsound, as well as making room for some of his own trademark instrumentals. Edan makes a rare guest appearance and totally blows minds on 'Spaceship Earth', a futuristic Psych-Rap monster at 139bpm! Sureshot La Rock is heavily featured throughout and commands the mic on 6 tracks including 'Live At The Place To Be', an incredible duet with veteran Phill Most Chill, and Mr Lif drops by and gets furious on 'Terror'.
Format's last album was back in 2005 and since then he's released various mix CD's including Fabriclive 27 and Fania DJ Series. He's also formed The Simonsound, with old friend Simon James, as an outlet for their love of music for Film & TV and vintage electronics. Their debut album 'Reverse Engineering' was heavily championed by Gilles Peterson and DJ Spinna and also received massive support in the B-boy community, prompting Format and James to record 2 more songs with B-boys very much in mind. Format decided to include those songs on 'Statement..' as a way of bridging the different projects.The outcome is superb and Format's statement is complete.
