FMkdigi013 - Format:B - CHunky - ROBOSONIC Remix - OUT NOW!26.01.2015
Robosonic delivers us the new Format:B single "Chunky". It has become a cracking and deep house track that will, in a positive way, frighten friends and colleagues with it's percussive and discoide elements all the way to the clubbers! The new year can't start better than this. A well thought out track- a masterpiece to pay tribute to the clubs around the world. Straight into the ears, stomachs and legs of the crowd: the vocals of the original track have been very cleverly set into place, on top a deep bass that will give your stomach a massage to make you bounce, escorted from passages that lean on the groove of the 80's. The percussion dominates this prize exhibiting track, dictating the direction on the dance floor in 2015: trim and twerking take off! We say "thank you". May 2015 musically be with you!
FMKdigi012 - V.A. - 5 Years Of Formatik - The Birthday Chapter - OUT from 22nd Dec. 2014!05.01.2015
As if it were yesterday: 3 young men are sitting in a beergarden in Berlin and talk about the next 'big' thing in the music label landscape of Germany. Formatik Records was born. Format:B member Jacob Hildebrand & Franziscus Sell as well as their label manager knew exactly in which direction to go. Energetic and exciting tech-house in its highest state of quality, flavoured with a touch of humorous ideas. They also had in mind to make cooperations with talents and friends from their personal and/or business surroundings. That sounded and currently still sounds like the correct recipy. 5 years later we celebrate these historic moments with a work exhibition that unites old friends, young producers and illustrious guests. Label friend Uto Karem or brother in mind Pleasurekraft as well as our seeded label artist Tobi Kramer. The hole work is enriched by the committed sound from our friends out of the Ukraine Konstantin Yoodza and also dj PP from Uruguay. This small compilation is completed nicely from artists that have'nt been released on Formatic- up to now that is. We welcome Dema & Alex Mine, Modevisning, Samuel Dan and Stratocaster. This musical bomb shows how we see powerful club music of the present. Always with a big bass in the pocket easily shaken out of the hips, with a blink of an eye for the right moment, humorous and full of lust. Raise your glasses and pay hommage to the coat of arms with the big F! Onto the next 5 years.
FMkdigi011 - Format:B - "Chunky" - OUT From 15th Dec. 2014 !15.12.2014
We opened our hard disc box of wonders once more in 2014, to release a new track of the legedary masters Jacob and Franz on to the dance floors around the world. "Chunky"s brilliance lies in the symbiosis between a thick bass and ravishing vocals, inviting us to go berserk. These two artist end the year with a nice finishing burner to which the people will rave the clubs everywhere through the winterly months to come and let us remember the European party summer. So put on your seat belts- we are going mad!

OUT NOW ! FMKdigi008 - Format:B - Der Samtfalter / keep it flittered!30.06.2014
The magic button has been pushed. The remixes for the Hallenser Superstars and Paule K climbed to the top of the charts. It was about time for the two Formatos to create a nice, steaming piece of music on their own imprint. "Der Samtfalter" flickers with a high wing frequency and untamable force foreward into our ears. Interrupted by a short failure of the wing engine and its resulting cascade is then beautifully intercepted to another high, making the animal dance eaven more energetic around the nectar. This summer the musical insect will fly through the feasting friends tranporting the beat so that the party will never stop.
Format:B Remix for Superflu`s "Me Roar" OUT NOW! (April, 24th 2014)28.04.2014
Techno's inimitable duo Super Flu unleash a massive remix package from last year's critically acclaimed album Halle Saale. Featuring a wealth of like-minded creative souls, each reversion adds a whole new narrative to Felix Thielemann and Mathias Schwarz's distinctive tales. Formatik founders Format:B take the lead with a genuine anthem-in-the-making. Taking the chugging smoky soul of "Me Roar" and injecting it with a blistering synth sound that pays homage to the mid noughties, their riff-heavy remix surges with emphatic electric command
The Next Strike On FMK! FMKdigi007 - Martinique - Mama Don`t Know EP / OUT FROM April 28th 2014 !28.04.2014
A young and energetic producer with the name Martinique, who lives near by Copenhagen, delivered us such fresh and amazing beats, that we had to release her output right away. So fast that her mom does'nt even know- which is probably better because the title track is so strong that potential dancers will be hit to shake their legs, that it hurts. Excessive nights between people alike are suggested. "Switch Off The T.V." shoots at you not to waste your time sitting on the sofa, but to turn the night into a worthy experience. The bassline guides us the way to where the solar plexus is located. This great E.P. finishes with "Take It To Las Vegas"- a thunder storm of base, which defenitely points towards the dance floor, no matter if in Las Vegas, Berlin or in Copenhagen- this woman will get attention! So it is not a surprise, that Formatik had to release this young diamond on the spot and from may on will be brought to label nights around the world by the label owned booking agency. Be curious for more. We definitely are!

The almost legendary original version of 'Bengang' from the year 2008 has a huge placement in the film and is a key track within Paul Kalkbrenner's Live Shows.

For their masterpiece they dig deep in their box of tricks and managed to create a unique sounding uptempo groover based on the easy recogniseable pieces of the original.
FMKdigi006 - Tobi Kramer - Charlie Runkle EP - OUT NOW!31.03.2014
Quality takes time. So it took almost one year for Tobi Kramer to show and proove his wonderful sence to capture the special dance-floor-moments. The “Charlie Runkle EP” presents three grooves that forefill the high claims of all night times. “Charlie Runkle” the old ladykiller aims directly for the hips. “We Do Not” energizes the dance floor until “Zaton” finally breaks up the early morning clouds, giving the bend audience the last kiss to dismiss them into the early sky. You can also watch a short video to “Zaton” which comes along with this EP. Tobi Kramer makes us very happy again.

Spectacular New Video "Magic Button" by Format:B, is OUT NOW, on our Youtube-Channel! Watch & Enjoy!12.12.2013
The Magic Button plays the most important role in this music video. It shows, that it is possible to create a great track by having a jesus moment. Known protagonists of the scene such as Oliver Koletzki, Simina Gregoriu, Jens Bond, K-Paul, Ruede Hagelstein, AndHim, SuperFlu as well as the friends from the Zurich Friedas Büxe family and many more, have been invited to add a special note to this clip. The whole thing was filmed in magic locations like the Kater Holzig in Berlin, the Stuttgart club Romy S. and the holy studio halls of Format:B in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Responsible for this sweet milestone are Mr. Franziskus Sell/Format:B himself as well as - for the realization - Janek Benno Bennewitz. What came out is a small and trashy masterpiece underlined with the freshest Format:B sound which, in the weeks to come, will probably rock exclusive dance halls worldwide.
