Mr DJ (feat. Sureshot La Rock)

A 5 track old school rap/hip-hop ep (17m 25s) — released January 28th 2011 on Project Blue Book
At last, DJ Format returns with exactly the type of Hip Hop we've all been missing! MR DJ sees Sureshot La Rock playfully bragging about his DJ partner's skills, constantly setting Format up to supply the punchline with a scratched vocal sample. Sureshot doesn't over-complicate the rhymes, instead keeping it simple & funky to fit Format's timeless sound perfectly as they weave effortlessly back & forth. Format, as ever the perfectionist was not happy just to make a straight instrumental version of MR DJ and instead created the B-BOY VERSION that sees him cutting & scratching the many different breaks,beats & samples that were too numerous to all fit into the vocal version. DOPE PUSHER has a more raw sound to it with Sureshot La Rock getting technical with some 'dope dealing' metaphors and several nods back to Big Daddy Kane, an obvious inspiration for the song. Sureshot's performance leaves you wondering how the hell you've never heard of him until now! Apparently, HERE COMES THE DOPE PUSHER originally began it's life as the intended backing track for Sureshot to deliver his 'Dope Pusher' lyrics but with so many intricate samples to fit into the track,Format opted to instead develop it into this instrumental Hip Hop-meets-Psych cut 'n' paste monster that cleverly samples '60s Rock records,classic Hip Hop records and includes an unhinged spoken word section warning of the evil 'Dope Pusher'. DJ Format is currently putting the finishing touches on his new album.
