Format  (Region: - Chapter: North West)

Format, aka Matthew Earl has been spinning vinyl since 2001. Influenced early on by DnB heavyweights such as AK1200, Dara, and Dieselboy, he developed a love for heavier sounds with deep bass hooks, sporadic drum patterns, and a metal/hip-hop undertone. Hardcore jungle. He has also cultivated a deep love for ragga jungle music.

Originally from Northern California, he was recognized by local DJs as a talent, joining up with 530Junglist crew in 2002 and Classic Grooves in 2006. Over the years he as opened for DJs such as Forest Green, Aphrodite, and Loxy. After taking a short break from djing DnB music to join the military, he hooked up with the JES crew out of Spokane in 2014. He has since moved to Seattle and has been making a name for himself amongst Seattle's local heavyweight DnB crews: Onset, SOMA, and DnB Tuesdays. Most recently, he has joined up with MIA, one of the most prestiges nation wide Drum and Bass crews in the US. Format has been blessed to open for many local shows along with events all across the west coast including Washington, Oregon, and California; playing sets that have kept the crowd going and has gotten the respect of many local DnB DJs.

For Format, music has always been the answer, to anything. It is a positive way to express yourself. “If you play it loud enough, it keeps the demons at bay” (Across the Universe). He loves to play for the music itself, for the adrenaline of a crowd, and for the love and respect of his supporters.

Junglist Movement. BOH!
