Human Kebab and DJ partner DCHAP have released a demo EP of dark, industrial emo rap punctuated by wickedly funny punch lines and wordplay. Their self-proclaimed garage rap is a marriage of gritty, guitar-heavy beats, slick vinyl slicing, and distorted vocals that can’t be blamed on just a shitty mic. Over the middle four of the EP’s six tracks, Human Kebab raps about a relationship with a mysterious girl that ended badly. On “I Care About You,” he raps, “You were my baby, and I was your Patrick Swayze / Point Break-up, you couldn’t persuade me,” details the reasons behind the break-up on “Wedding’s Off,” and kicks her out on “Your Movin’ Out.” “Garrity” is just a little more venting on his well-travelled ex. At one or two verses each, they’re short and to the point and these venomous outpourings of emotion are delivered with humorous similes and wordplay that’s simply brilliant — or is that brilliantly simple? The book-ending tracks demonstrate a little more versatility; opener “Darkest Hour” is a scathing diss to an unnamed individual (and I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of it being the ex-girlfriend), and closer “Stationary Robbery” is a funky, braggadocio rap track with the Human as a pen thief. Too bad it’s all so damn short. - Exclaim - Thomas Quinlan

Bio

Human Kebab arose out of the creative interests and personality polarization of two dark individuals. Mentally exhausted with the hip hop and rock status quo, the awesome and fearsome rage of Human and DCHAP juxtaposed to dispel any notions that garage rock and rap weren't possible. Thus, Garage Rap was formed on a bed of compact discs, the comforter a catalogue of Public Enemy, Joy Division, Mobb Deep, The Cure, The Strokes, Gang Starr and Wesley Willis.

Human Kebab is musically divisional from the vast world of creators insofar as their ability to draw the attention of music listeners in dozens of mainstream and sub-genres is unparalleled. The twosome faced some incredbile challenges in the past year, opening for The Beatnuts with DJ Serious. They have seen critical acclaim from several rock bands, having played opening slots alongside The Cheap Suits, Silent Seymour, Clothes Make The Man and Warsaw Pack. It is within these open boundaries that Human Kebab finds itself a perfect match for all would-be fans, friends and foes.
