Biography of Format B:
So, as one does, he began buying the odd techno maxi here and there until one day little Jakob thought to himself: “Why heck, I can do that too!”So off he went and bought himself an overpriced Atari St40 and a cheap synthesizer, only to realize that oops those guys from Detroit really do know what they’re doing and that it wasn’t that easy after all. Well, that is basically where Jacob’s ambitiously planned out life suddenly took a screeching of the wheels turn in another direction….Franziskus is from Erfurt, a small and rural part of Germanys quite rough and wild East, which didn’t stop him from starting piano lessons at the innocent age of 6. His musical interests took him from the usual suspects like Michael Jackson and The Pet Shop Boys through to Hardcore (obviously not on the piano). But then one day, or night to be exact similar to Jakob, all was to suddenly change….. A fortuitous night out at the legendary E-Werk in 1993, made this young mans heartbeat skip from Chopin over to a 4/4 beat where it was to remain, probably forever.Three years later Franziskus took up residency at the infamous Sub ground Lighthouse After hour, resulting in numerous further bookings.The paths of these two young men crossed whilst they were both studying to be sound engineers. Seeing as all the other students in there year were long haired Metal heads it was only a matter of time until their paths crossed. So, after spending a few long Berlin party nights together they decided to see if they could start a project together. And so the story ends or better yet, begins with Format:B….
