"The Appetizer EP"
appetizer is something that's coming up before a meal. Those little meat
balls, cheese balls, salt bakeries, whatever's nice and fits in your hands,
and does not let you chew too long, so that you can still talk to the
other people chewing next to you. An appetizer will never seize your hunger,
and that's also not it's goal. Actually the opposite: it has to get you
even hungrier for something that's coming up later. And that's what this
An appetizer will get you hungrier for something that's coming up later.
the p side, things start up with "No Worries" by Commonwealth. And while
this track is already 4 years old, it does not ask for a modern days update,
but can be enjoyed just as much in this form. Not allowing themselves
to babble, they kick rhymes like "in the future, the only certainty are
death, taxes and change", while a piano and another horn fight for the
status of being more melancholy. Subdivision return with "The Charlie
Brown Song". This almost uptempo piano gives this track a very humorous
and funny feel. And this is convincing you of the huge amount of ideas
these guys have, that they execute them well, and that they succeed in
giving us a little something different. And well, maybe it's a little
unfair having this beat taking away so much of the attention away from
the emcees, but as they say themselves too, this song does not have a
topic anyways, sort of. And to give this tape it's final underground status,
they put Kid Dragon's appearance on the "Wake Up" show on it. First doing
some heavy scratching, over bare drums, things get ugly with very fast
cutting during part two , and the overkill is when he flips his 'scratch
rapping' style over the infamous "Ice Ice Baby" track.
