FREE HIP HOP LENGENDs Yoda & Format
Sat 17th Feb 2018
We are super stoked to announce that next Saturday we will be hosting an all day event ending in DJ Yoda's incredible History of Hip Hop set. The day will start with our Bottomless Brunch hosted by the wonderful Alfie Ordinary to be followed by local heroes 1BTN who will take us through to the evening. DJ Format will pick up the baton and tee up the best set ever played in a brewery!
This is a FREE ALL DAY EVENT so arrive early to avoid disappointment. No, really, come down EARLY, it's gonna be roadblocked.
DJ Yoda is a multi-award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer, headlining festivals and clubs around the world. Internationally respected for his turntablism, the viral success of his Stranger Things Mix racked up more than a quarter million plays on Soundcloud, culminating in his UK Tour of Stranger Things The Mixtape Live.
He was Dr Dre’s first choice to record a guest mix on his inaugural Beats 1 show for Apple Music in 2015, and was one of a select band of artists to perform at Banksy’s pop-up Bemusement Park, Dismaland. His eclectic series of How to Cut & Paste mixtapes offer a uniquely British take on hip-hop music and culture.
DJ Format’s debut album “Music For The Mature B-Boy” was one of the slowburn success stories of 2003. An album of soulful, funk-fuelled Hip Hop packed with infectious beats and lyrical dexterity, it delivered the promise of his early releases for ‘Mo Wax and Bomb Hip Hop. In 2006 Format was asked to contribute to the successful Fabric DJ mix series. Format’s “fabriclive 27” was one of the most well received of the series.
His DJ sets are renowned for their boundary-crossing selection of the funk, soul, rock & hip-hop and his fabric mix showed of a condensed version of the party set that he’s built a solid reputation on. His new album “Statement Of Intent” sees vocal collaborations with Edan, Mr Lif and Phill Most Chill as well as the ever present Sureshot La Rock.
If that wasn't enough, 1BTN, Brighton's best new radio station is bringing its best DJs down for a massive session. The ultimate warm up. Don't miss this.
