DJ Format and Abdominal just can't stay away from touring the UK! After another incredibly successful tour earlier this year, the infamous hip hop duo head out once again to showcase their very first full-length album together, 'Still Hungry'.
'Still Hungry' was released in May this year and it saw the guys play live on BBC 6 Music with Lauren Laverne as well as London's very own Soho Radio. The first single from the album, 'Behind the Scenes' was play listed on 6Music and received more than 50 plays on the station. The duo has released several videos to accompany the album and they have clocked up over 150K plays so far. Still Hungry hit the Top 10 in the iTunes Hip Hop Charts as well as hitting #1 in the overall Bandcamp album charts.
The second part of the UK tour sees DJ Format & Abdominal reach towns and cities a lot of artists don't care to reach proving the fact that the UK hip hop scene is thriving as much as ever.
For fourteen years, DJ Format and rapper Abdominal have been entertaining crowds from Toronto to the UK. Now the hip-hop stars are back at it in 2017 with their new album and a 16-date UK tour, which includes a show at London’s legendary venue Electric Ballroom in Camden. The new album, Still Hungry, will be released April 28th 2017 on AAF Records via Kartel Music Group.
The new album comes off the heels of a huge UK winter tour in 2015 that commemorated ten years since their last performance together in the country. The tour quickly sold out in several cities, which cemented the duo’s desire to return to the studio to create their first full-length album together.
While they both have collaborated on each other’s solo records, Still Hungry marks their first joint album. The brand new LP boasts the best of what they each bring to the hip-hop community: funky, up-tempo and slick beats, coupled with intelligent, savvy lyrics. The LP also showcases a grittier, harder sound, reflecting the maturity of the two, giving their audience some head-bobbing bangers that could rock any concert hall.
“It's amazing to be able to watch an artist grow into his own space and perfect his craft right before your eyes. I have been blessed to be able to see DJ Format & Abdominal grow from apprentices to masters, who cannot be contested in their respective fields.”
