Wheelchair Sportscamp with Kind Dub
Denver's biggest smallest band.
"If there were ever a moment for a queer, disabled rapper with a love for pot, jokes, and revolution to be a star, the moment is now" - Village Voice
Combining humor, playfulness, radical political perspectives, compassion and undeniable musical chops, Wheelchair Sports Camp is unlike any other hip-hop act around. Fronted by the wheelchair bound MC/beat-maker/activist/educator/shit-talker Kalyn, the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments with a more noisey, jazzy, experimental, combination to the traditional hip-hop group. The band has been featured on the cover of the Village Voice as well as in SPIN Magazine, Huffington Post, High Times Magazine and more. You can't really pin Kalyn's beats and collaborators to a specific era or subgenre of hip-hop, and she always switches up her configuration and presentation and methodology while making the music happen in consistently fascinating ways.
The band unknowingly started in the summer of 1997 when Kalyn moved back from Burbank, CA to her Denver hometown and was invited to attend and corrupt the 14th annual week-long Wheelchair Sports Camp. The band tours the states and beyond from their home in Denver, Colorado.
TThe production and emcee duo of Kind Dub consisting of “KD” (Cody Marsden) and “CO” (Cory Clarke) have been producing music and writing together in Colorado since late 2011. Shortly after, they founded Kind Dub Krew, and recorded 2 projects with NY lyricist “Arson” (Nick Arsenault) and featured long-time Colorado emcee Qbala. Kind Dub has seen recent breakthroughs in the underground hip-hop scene due to their relentless work ethic and undeniable dedication to making quality music while providing top-notch live performances. They are the type of artists who go out of their way to help other artists. Kind Dub played their first show together live in 2013, and since have shown no signs of slowing down. Kind Dub’s one-of-a-kind sound and thought-provoking lyrics have shared stages with many great artists including People Under The Stairs, The Living Legends, Hieroglyphics, Chali 2na & The Funk Hunters, Devin the Dude, Zion I Crew, Pharoahe Monch, Da Mafia 6ix, Amp Live, Blueprint, DJ Logic, SOL, Eligh, Nappy Roots, Rhymesayers, and many more. Their same work ethic has taken them on 4 tours including a trip to SXSW in 2015. They have self-managed, produced, and released 6 official projects for themselves and others under the Kind Dub umbrella, with the highly acclaimed “Year Of The Dragonfly” album released on November 11th, 2016. This is CO’s debut solo emcee album with the genius Dutchman KD engineering at the helm. Download FREE music at www.KindDub.com
