Patrick Forge

Real Name:
Patrick Forge
British DJ, broadcaster, and recording artist.

Originally from Ipswich, after moving to London and a stint working in Reckless Records on Berwick Street, Forge was one of the two DJ's that held residency at the influential London club Dingwalls (the other being Gilles Peterson) for the clubnight "Talkin' Loud And Saying Something".

He was also the only DJ still doing a show on Kiss FM in London from it's inception, 21 years earlier, with his last show being broadcast on Sunday 14 September 2008.

After originally doing a live act called Batu with friend Chris Franck earlier, they later realised they wanted to do a more studio-based project and the group Da Lata was started which had much success with the single "Pra Manha" (1998) and the album "Songs From The Tin" (2000).

After leaving Kiss FM, he initially moved to Okinawa, Japan. More recently he is again based in London, UK.

Patrick Forge (with Gilles Peterson), doing the Dingwalls club's Jazz-dance sessions on a Sunday afternoon in London's Camden. Probably THE most important London DJ's of high importance to the Jazz-Dance scene, following after the early guys like Paul Murphy etc. who introduced Jazz as an innovation to clubs in London during the mid-to-late '70s through to the '80s and beyond....
