Album: Dabbla x Sumgii – Nobody

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

Potent Funk masterminds Dabbla and Sumgii have joined forces for their first joint album, Nobody. The history of their collaborations spans back to LDZ and Problem Child, and although it’s taken years for a full project from just the pair, it’s all been worth the wait. Plus, that time has given both artists the expertise and perspective necessary for a LP of such a high standard.

In Dabbla’s own words, there are “no features only heaters”, and eleven to be precise. Sumgii’s production is packed with sticky basslines and down-tempo drum loops, backing Dabbla’s erratic bars that display his skills in both writing and delivery. Nobody is undoubtably a keystone for “hybrid rap” in the UK.

Cop the project on vinyl, cassette and digital via Potent Funk, or stream it below the video for its title track.
