On Wednesday, Dirty Paraffin unveiled "Download This," a brash, beautifully spacey track from the Johannesburg electro-rap duo's upcoming DP EP. On June 2, Durban-born mischief-makers Okmalumkoolkat and Dokta Spizee are set to release their entire six-song effort, but you can stream it right now below. From the ass- (and electro-) crazed "Big Bootyholic" to the stomping, abstract "Primusstof," the record more than justifies why, in a review of DPs friend Spoek Mathambo's SPIN Essential Father Creeper, contributor Richard Gehr compared these guys to Das Racist, "only Zulu." Another difference: Where the New York rap crew enthused about "a million dollars" on debut album Relax's "Michael Jackson," their South African peers' wry "Big Bucks Bonanza" only counts up to a grand. Come west, young men.
