Alternative Hip-Hop band, Oxymorrons, began as a collaboration between Queens bred brothers – K.I. and Deee – who joined forces to cultivate a sound that modern music has never embarked on, but can never turn its back from. After years spent playing and touring with other groups, it was clearly time for the duo to unleash their eclectic sonic creations and set the New York scene ablaze. The line up was soon completed with the addition of drummer Matty Mayz, whose blistering talent has become an intricate part of the group’s live show. The Oxymorrons are not a hip-hop group in case you were wondering. They are not a rock group, or a pop act. They are the aftermath of a massive collision between inspiration and boundless creativity. From this conception, they learned to not define their music by genre, rather embrace it as sounds conceived by inspiration.
Since their inception, the Oxy’s constantly explored uncharted musical frontiers while maturing within their signature sound on each new track. The group continued gaining momentum by playing various shows around New York City, finally catching their first big break opening for Lupe Fiasco. These early successes lead to collaborating with Jay-Z’s Artful Dodger brand on bi-costal events hosted by Sway Calloway of MTV and DJ Skee for the release their mixtape, ‘STFU and Listen.’ Propelled by the mixtapes reception, the guys quickly found their infectious energy and creativity in high demand and were tapped to tour with Gym Class Heroes and collaborate on Wynter Gordon’s dance hit “TKO.”
Oxymorrons high energy performances, pop culture infused lyrics, and mesmerizing music has earned them a legion of fans leading to partnerships with the likes of RedBull, Rocawear, Marvel, DeadBolt, Modify Watches, and Saturday Night Live. They have played some of the biggest festivals including SXSW, Firefly, AfroPunk Fest, Funk Fest, CMJ and have shared the stage with chart toping acts like Outkast, Common, Ludacris, Juicy J, B.o.B, Gym Class Heroes, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Ke$ha, Bad Rabbits, Rhianna, Neon Hitch, Salt N Pepa and more.
Oxymorrons are currently gearing up to release their debut EP with Tommy Boy Entertainment, ‘Complex But Basic’. They’ll be unleashing an onslaught of blazing new singles and imaginative music videos and taking to the road to perform tracks for fans near and far.
