A REVIEW OF… DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL – STILL HUNGRY

frmt

Over the years, DJ FORMAT and ABDOMINAL have featured on each other’s tracks – but now, on April 28, the hip-hop pair will release their first collaborative LP.

Between them they have played over twenty UK tours, performed at Glastonbury and trekked around Europe and Australia for the past fifteen years. It is not difficult to see why crowds gather for the pair; STILL HUNGRY accumulates slick funk fuelled beats with gritty yet well produced bars.

The whole album could easily soundtrack downtown American city movies, the likes of Grand Theft Auto or even be used in glossy adverts. Showcasing DJ Format and Abdominal‘s versatility across eleven tracks is effectively what Still Hungry is.

We’re Back stands out; with pacy, savvy lyrics and slapped bass – as does the deeper vocals of Dirt. It is No Time, in our opinion, that steals the show, though. Storytelling rapping, toe-tapping backing track and oozing with body-swaying groove – it is everything DJ Format and Abdominal have teased over the past decade and a half.

Still Hungry is an album that should definitely be listened to as a whole – from track one to track eleven.
