'Hunger Pains' - Skandal (mixtape review)

Even from the cleverly put together 15 minute mini-mix it's obvious that Skandal’s new ‘Hunger Pains’ mixtape is of a high calibre. Each verse exhibits this MCs ability to twist and wreck words – bending them into his own configuration to serve his purposes. Roast dinners, films and actors and play with different root words all contribute to the overall dopeness and listenability of Skandal’s product.

DJ MK does the cutting honours and the beat selection is solid – guaranteed to keep you moving in your chosen way. The CD features Little Dee and Ramson Badbonez and it seems some real heads are already in support – Shortee Blitz, Huw Stephens (Radio 1) and DJ 279. Big.

‘Hunger Pains’ is available on 26th October and is exclusive to UK Record Shop.
