On their last album Franz and Jakob aka Format B were to be found covered in soot and coal, firing up the engines of the dance locomotive, now they have gone greener and swapped over to wind power and are fishing the >Restless< oceans of the world. Tirelessly the two sailors work on the deck disregarding the cold and the weather, pulling in the nets filled with floundering hits. This time they have spiced up the bait with the amazing voice of Fran on >Liquid< who turns into a working class siren and manages to rock the boat properly with track 2. Keeping with the maritime theme the boys have used a harmonica on >Socks and Sandals< and a piano on >Piano Man<. Classic Format B can be found on >Atomizer< and >Oversexed< … kicking man high bass beats to thrill the four quarter beat fans, and >Biker Meth< is going to keep you dancing till noon (at least). Even with the pressures of jet setting, label management, party organisation, building a studio, and the romantic needs of their girlfriends they have still managed to finish their first Formatik album to their complete satisfaction and are extremely proud to present the first artist album on Formatik Records. Ahoi and enjoy people!
It has been three years since Steam Circuit (2008) first glimpsed the light of day and gave us hits like >Edding 850< which shot to the top of the Beatport charts. The two Berliners have been very busy and have founded their own label Formatik Records about two years ago amongst many other things. They have already released hits like Gospel and various tracks by new and promising artists and also famed producer Sébastien Léger, who is now a close friend of the house. Their success sent them out on a major world tour: Australia, Asia and into virtually every corner of Europe. They also tapped into the South American market in a big way. They also regularily host a Formatik Label Night in the world renowned Berlin Club Watergate. [fmklp001_info from wa]
