DJ Format & The Simonsound Live A/V Show Sampler
Here’s a little taster of what to expect at the new live Audio/Visual show that DJ Format & The Simonsound are currently touring around the UK and Europe to promote the long awaited new DJ Format album Statement of Intent.
Format starts the show on the turntables cutting up some of his better known songs before being joined by Simon on the Moog Synthesizer and an armory of electronic effects. Here they take you away on a musical journey from Hip Hop & Funk to spaced out electronics. The music is accompanied by synchronised visuals that sample moments from classic B-Boy footage, tripped-out animation and carefully chosen visual oddities in a cut ‘n’ paste style that is completely in tune with the music.
The music itself consists mostly of songs from DJ Format’s first two albums, his new album Statement of Intent and also songs from The Simonsound’s album Reverse Engineering that Simon & Format made together in 2010.
The video footage was filmed at the launch party on Friday 2nd March 2012 at The Concorde 2, Brighton but the sound was replaced with practice recordings from home due to sound quality issues on the actual video recording.
