Oxymorrons Release “Hello Me” Remix Video

After a number of lively, house rocking shows, opening for rapper Waka Flocka Flame, New York bred quintet, Oxymorrons releases the “Hello Me” remix video showing footage from the sold-out 4/20 event. The group teamed with videographer Heat Da Kid to film it at the show. Okay Player says it’s “takes the sweeping electro ballad from cinematic to certifiably turnt.” 

After beginning as a duo consisting of Queens-brothers K.I. and Dee and touring with other groups, paving New York with their signature, original sound, the group decided to expand, picking up staple drummer Matty Mayz, bassist Joe Jordan, and guitarist Adam November. The group then dedicated themselves to both conveying and living out their message of individuality. Together, they perfected their organic musical presence, earning them performances with notable acts such as Travie McCoy, Saba, Sam Gongol, Marian Hill, Maxine Ashley, Pharrell Williams, and Wynter Gordon. It has also gravitated partnerships with major companes such as Red Bull, Converse, Rocawear, Deadbolt, Karmaloop, and Modify Watches.

The group’s captivating live performance is most evident in the fact that they’ve played at a collection of important festivals including SXSW, Firefly, AfroPunk, Funk Fest, CMJ and have blazed the stage with artists including, but not limited to, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Ludacris, Juicy J, Gym Class Heroes, Bruno Mars, Bad Rabbits, Rihanna, Salt N Pepa, and Danny Brown.

The “Hello Me” remix video release is just a sample of the work the band has planned for the remainder of 2016. Currently, they are preparing to hit the road this summer on their Geeked Out tour, scheduled to perform at several major festivals including Houston Free Press Summer Fest and Milwuakee Summer Fest. During the previous series of shows, the boys curated songs from their Complex But Basic EP.

Oxymorrons Release Remix

Blooming from the crevices of Queen’s concrete, alternate-urban hip-hop and pop pentad K.I., Deee, drummer, Marty Mayz, guitarist, Adam November, and guitarist, Joe Jordan, collectively known as Oxymorrons, afforded the world happy holidaze on 4/20 after debuting “Hello Me” (Colino Fresh Remix) shortly before their show with Waka Flocka Flames at Webster Hall in New York City. The group’s name epitomizes the dynamic of their sound.

The hard delivery of their hip-hop punchlines, ran away or preceded by smooth, synthetic vocals, layering mild loops of the accompanying instrumental, is often interrupted by cacophonous, glorious percussive reverberation. This is most evident in their song, “808 Clap;” Their rap verses ride womanly operatic vocals, the repetition of the phrase “808 Clap,” occasional bass kicks and claps, and at the end of the tune, the heavenly strumming of harp playing overlaying the singing drapes a blanket of flowers over the gravel and grime of their flow. 

Their contrasting artistic style has classified their music as an entire spherical force of its own, rolling them into the direction of success, magnetizing the desire for collaborations from well acclaimed artists such as Travie McCoy, Saba, Marian Hill, Pharrell Williams, and Wynter Gordon. It has also led to band partnerships with companies such as RedBull, Rocawear, Converse, DeadBolt, Karmaloop, and Modify Watches. 

Their all-encompassing, organic modus operandi in “Hello Me” (Colino Fresh Remix) and has set many stages ablaze including those which the band played on alongside Outkast, Gym Class  Heros, Ludacris, and Common. Check out the mesmerizing track in the link below: 

The original, and a song that will be in their upcoming EP, Complex But Basic (anticipated release for later this year by Tommy Boy Entertainment), “Hello Me,” can be purchased on iTunes, or can serve as mood music for their custom online video game on their website!
