Emerging from Imminence Records, Kinnecom has been writing and producing music since a very young age. He’s written and recorded several albums, his solo instrumental album recorded in 2011 generating Kinnecom recognition from artists all over the country which brought him to collaborate on an album with Drew Fulk and land his first record deal with Indianola Records during his term with former hardcore band, Wealth in Water.

Once the group broke up in 2013, Kinnecom and a few members assembled to form Motiv (formally known as Motvational), hit the road twice for two national tours and recorded their debut album mid-2014. During that time, Kinnecom prepared and released his full length debut album, Virtual Gravity. The album plays as a cinema and marks Kinnecom with a signature, organic presence within the music industry. It’s beautifully woven with poetic rap lyrics, synthetic vocals, and his story, perspective on social issues, and uphill battles.

The music also delivers inspirational messages to his audience. Through Imminence Records, Kinnecom released Virtual Gravity November 18th and his sophomore album, Motion Sickness on October 30th.

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!

Upcoming Shows: 
Apr 26 - Knitting Factory - New York, NY (w/Mr. Lif)
Jun 4-5 - Free Press Summer Festival - Houston, TX
**more dates TBA

Adrian Daniel Premiers New Album

New York, home of the big apple and domicile of dreams breeds a new alternative soul singing sensation, Adrian Daniel. He proudly premiere’s his album Disillusions. The 15-track collection is a creative weaving of modern & post 1970 R&B instrumentals coated with the synthetic sounds of his vocals. The album released on iTunes on April 1, 2016, and reflects heavy influence from Kanye West, Bob Dylan, Jay Z, and Cold Play. 

Work from the Brooklyn born artist has made a bit of a splash in the music pool and has generated acclaim and support from Spotify, TIDAL Discovery, Complex, Vibe, The Fader, as well as Okayplayer; but, the list goes on. 

After the rise and fall of a band that he started called L.D.C, Daniel committed to pursuing a solo career and prides himself on having an unbreakable work ethic and trying vigorously to impact world with his music.

He stated: "Music is everything we hope life would be... At least that's what I believe. That's what I've tried to do with this album: with the storytelling, sonics and everything. I just think that's the purpose of art, to push. I wrote this album to move past all the anger I had with myself and people... to keep from going insane at points in my life. Making this album was a labor of love for me. I never had to do anything this difficult in my life... but it was gratifying though. I learned so much in the process."
