DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL

Hiphop / Funk – GB

BIO

For fourteen years, DJ Format and rapper Abdominal have been entertaining crowds from Toronto to the UK.

Their latest release Still Hungry boasts the best of what Format and Abs bring to the hip-hop community: funky, up-tempo and slick beats, coupled with intelligent, savvy lyrics. The album also showcases a grittier, harder sound, reflecting the maturity of the two artists, giving their audience some head-bobbing bangers that could rock any concert hall.

Together, they have toured the UK more than twenty times to sold-out crowds. They have rocked stages such as Glastonbury Festival, Boomtown Festival and the iconic Jazz Café and Brixton Academy venues in London.

They have also brought their high-energy shows to Australia and across Europe several times over the past fifteen years.

Format’s sets are known for their boundary-crossing selection of funk, soul, rock and hip-hop. With three albums under his belt, Format has shown his range as a DJ and producer. His latest release, Kool & the Gangstarr Generation, shuttled Format back to his b-boy roots by releasing a self-produced instrumental 45. The response was electric: the record sold out within a week.

Abdominal, aka Andy Bernstein, has been involved in Toronto’s music scene for nearly 25 years, performing at the Harbourfront Center for the Arts, Manifesto Festival, the SOCAN Awards, Pop Montreal Showcase, the Cavalcade of Lights and many other high profile events.

Like any memorable hip-hop team, DJ Format & Abdominal have found success by working off each other’s strengths and giving the global hip-hop community a unique and funky sound destined to be a fixture in every rap lover’s collection.
