OUT NOW: WHEELCHAIR SPORTS CAMP - YESS I'M A MESS 7"
Combining humor, playfulness, middle fingers, and an undeniable love for theÂ groove,Â WHEELCHAIR SPORTS CAMPÂ is certainly not your average hip-hopÂ act. Fronted byÂ KALYN ROSE HEFFERNANÂ â€“ a wheelchair using, profanely queer, and tiny rapper, with a very distinct high-pitched sense of humor,Â the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments provided byÂ JOSHUA TRINIDADÂ on trumpet andÂ GREGG ZIEMBAÂ on drums that creates a more jazzy, noisey, funky sound than the traditional hip-hop group. Their unconventional setup of live instruments and Kalynâ€™s produced beats presents a polished sound with old-school lyrics that maintain a sarcastic yet independent and heavy consciousness.
The band unknowingly started in the summer of 1997 when Kalyn moved back from California to her hometown and was invited to attend and corrupt the 14th annual week-long Colorado Jr. Wheelchair Sports Camp. This noisy experiment was birthed by the DIY, combining beats with shredding face live. Playing shows in every place they could, the band has since stretched into theatre, performance art, public television, politics, prison tours, permanent installations, and who knows whatâ€™s nextâ€¦. but alreadyÂ WHEELCHAIR SPORTS CAMPÂ has been featured on the cover of the Village Voice as well as in SPIN Magazine, Huffington Post, High Times Magazine and more.
With two songs on theirÂ ALTERNATIVEÂ TENTACLES RECORDS debut 7-inch recordâ€¦WHEELCHAIR SPORTS CAMPÂ has written a future viral hit with,Â â€œYess Iâ€™m A Messâ€Â andÂ â€œHard OutÂ Here For A Gimpâ€.Â Conscience hip-hop mixed with acoustic beats, swelling keysÂ and a lyrical flow that will get you singing along on your firstÂ listen.
