"Madness! It can't be true!" This was the headline in world news when it was announced that someone had finally found a way to fuse rap and rock without sucking. The year was 2004 & unsuspecting indie rap renegade, Louis Dorley née louis logic, was about to step foot into another routine overseas collaboration, this time with Copenhagen production syndicate Nobody Beats the Beats. As fate would have it, the engineer who was to record this magical session fell ill and was replaced by flamenco guitarist extraordinaire, Laust "Juelz" Jeppesen. It was a classic case of loathe at first site when the two discovered they shared the same disdain for the monotony of 1994 rap revivalists. Three hours and one run of the mill rap song later, plans for a secret summit were orchestrated to invent something the hip hop world hadn't seen in years: The Next Cool.
In attendance at this freak show power summit were Jeppesen, Dorley and former hitman turned teen idol, Rolf Sigurd Heat. The discussion began simply enough with the objective to shun all things reeking of regimented rapping and banal beat-smithing. In no time the ill fated trio had whipped up a helping of original, sample-free, live music smacking of an early Roots album outtake. It was then that they realized they must go further. Their travels took them into unfamiliar territory, hacking their way through the overgrown forest of 50's and 60's white music "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" style.
At first, it was the ooze of sleazy lounge lizard jazz, which gave way to circus like waltzes and even histrionic Anglo spy scores. Then, born in the wake of a series of personal tragedies, sanctimonious late night speeches about reaching true potential and ice cold beers, the first Surf Rap song in the history of mankind materialized. Naturally, as was the case with man's first walk on the moon, something so exciting could not simply be explored once. Or rather, it could, but this trio was determined, neigh, bent on reshaping the rap game into something silly enough to enjoy once again. So it was that in this the year of our lord 2008, Spork Kills would rise to fame as the Fathers of Surf Rap. - AP (Associated Press) Sept, 2008


TODAY I SPENT THE AFTERNOON WITH LOUIS LISTENING TO THE NEW ALBUM HE'S BEEN WORKING ON. IT'S BEYOND HIP HOP ANYONE ELSE I'M AWARE OF HAS EVER ATTEMPTED BEFORE. REAL BREAKOUT MATERIAL. OUT OF THE 5 OR 6 TRACKS I HEARD AT LEAST 2 OR 3 COULD BE HIT SINGLES. ON A MAJOR LEVEL. THE KIND OF HITS GNARLS BARKLEY AND ANDRE 3000 HAVE MADE. NO BULLSHIT NO HYPE NO EXAGERATION. THE SONGS ARE UNDENIABLE FOR COMMERCIAL VIABILITY AND CROSS OVER POTENTIAL.


WHILE THE SUBJECT MATTER STILL MAINTAINS THE INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS & TECHNICAL LYRICISM LOUIS HAS DEMONSTRATED ON PREVOIUS PROJECTS GIRLS WILL GRAVITATE CUZ THE BEATS ARE PERFECT FOR SHAKING THEIR LOVE HANDLES DUDES WILL DIG IT BECUZ SIMPLY PUT THE LYRICS ARE FUCKING COOL. WHAT'S BETTER

THAN SONGS ABOUT MASTURBATION MURDER HEARTBREAK AND UNREQUITED REGRET.


IF YOU COULD IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD SOUND LIKE IF THE BEST OF

THE BEACH BOYS, B52'S, BLENDED WITH THE FLOW OF BIG DADDY KANE THAT MIGHT GIVE YOU SOME INKLING OF AN IDEA WHERE THE ALBUM IS GOING.


I'M INSPIRED AND IMPRESSED BY PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO EXPLORE AND STRETCH THE BOUNDARYS OF WHAT RAP SONG FORMATS USUALLY CONSIST OF YA KNOW VERSE HOOK VERSE HOOK MAYBE A BREAKDOWN ETC. LOUIS HAS CRAFTED SOMETHING THAT SETS NEW STANDARDS FOR CATCHY BUT NOT CORNY OR CLICHE.


I REMEMBER OVER A YEAR AGO TALKING TO LOUIS. HE SAID HE WAS TIREDOF INDIE HIP HOP AND RAPPING. AND THAT HE WAS MORE INTERESTED IN BECOMING A SINGER SONGWRITER. I'M RELIEVED HE FOUND A WAY TO BRIDGE THE GAP WITH HIS UPCOMING PROJECT. IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF ALL THAT VERSATILE TALENT WENT TO WAISTE.


LOUIS HAS A FEW FRIENDS IN VERY HIGH PLACES FAMOUS ON YOUR TV

EVERY DAY HIGH PLACES. HOPEFULLY WITH THOSE CONNECTIONS HE

CAN PUT HIMSELF IN A POSITION TO REACH THE MASSES THE WAY HIS

CAREER DESERVES TO BE FOR MAKING TRUELY ORIGINAL MUSIC THAT

IS CERTAINLY MORE THAN UNDERGROUND OR TYPICAL RHYMES AND BEATS.

“Night of the Hip ‘N Dead”
I have to admit, I’m automatically wary when people start talking about crossing and mixing genres and it’s not because I don’t applaud their effort or even commend it. It’s just an incredibly tricky situation and one that is difficult to pull off. That being said, it’s strikingly appropriate that the video opens by focusing on a misfit. Spork Kills is a rock-rap crossover that I can really get behind – blending quick lyrics with a dark beat in a way that just… works. While the high school premise is not a particularly unique basis for a video, the way in which is descends into a weird zombie B-movie is strange and weird and quirky. Totally befitting of the artist.

"If more mc's like this would come out, wack hip hop would disappear faster than social security."
- Urb Magazine (US):


"louis logic sits at the forefront of the broke but gifted mc's queue" - Hip Hop Connection (UK)


"His lyrical content is unfiltered enough to make Howard Stern blush.. but he's heady when he wants to be."
- Washington Post (Washington, DC)


"louis logic got lines for days." - Capital Magazine (Toronto, ON)


"Logic twists between real issues and drunken foolery faster than your headphones will allow you to comprehend. Sin-A-Matic will undoubtedly leave you begging for more musical mastery."
- SBC Skateboard Magazine (Toronto, ON)


"louis logic has character. He's a straight shooter with many a good tale to tell. Mighty fresh beats and off the wall concepts." - Stealth Magazine (Sydney, Australia)

Bio

Spork Kills, The Fathers of Surf Rap
The year was 2005. Unsuspecting indie rap renegade, Louis Dorley née louis logic, was about to step foot into a freak show power summit with flamenco guitarist extraordinaire, Laust “Juelz” Jeppesen and former hitman turned teen idol, Rolf Sigurd Heat. They began with the intention of escaping the confines of rap’s rigid traditionalism. It was a journey that took them into unfamiliar territory, as they hacked their way through the overgrown forest of 50’s and 60’s white music. At first, it was the ooze of sleazy lounge lizard jazz, which gave way to circus-like waltzes and even histrionic Anglo spy scores. Then, from a sea of personal tragedy, sanctimonious spouting and ice cold beer, the first Surf Rap song in the history of mankind was born. The trio was bent on reshaping the rap game into something silly enough to enjoy once again. So it was that in the year of our lord 2008, Spork Kills would rise to fame as the Fathers of Surf Rap.
