DJ FORMAT (UK)
DJ Pun & Rainer
Tonight is Kaschemme’s season opening and AKIWAWA welcomes DJ Format, what a perfect timing. DJ Format doesn’t need much of an introduction, he’s a fantastic Rap DJ/Producer and is rocking the clubs around the globe with his bone breaking funky B-Boy sounds. He also has a time consuming passion of hunting obscure funky 60/70s sounds and is always on the look-out for the next obscure and lesser known bits. Not only searching for drum-breaks or samples, he adores these sounds, especially the psychedelic fuzz guitar tunes. This is one of the reasons that got him on the radar of the UK label BBE Records. In 2016 they released the awesome compilation „DJ Formats Psych Out (A Collection Of International Funky Fuzz Laiden Gems)“, containing 14 psychedelic obscurities from all over the globe, handpicked out of DJ Formats shelfs.
He rarely presents these jewels from his immense record collection to the public in one of his DJ-sets. Of course some of these tunes find their way sampled on his brilliant productions. Well, tonight at AKIWAWA you’ll have the rare chance to hear him play these hidden gems. DJ Format is going to put the needle on whatever he wants, alongside DJ Pun & Rainer! From Soul, Funk to Breaks, Psych, Rock or Rap etc. everything is possible! One thing is for sure, he’ll pick only his most favourite and best records, quality first! So if you're in Basel, do not miss this chance.
AKIWAWA… the bimonthly night run by DJ Pun (Unique) and Rainer (Konzeptlos)… raw, dusty & crackling – Soul, Funk, Island & African plates…
