  • Artist: Oxymorrons
  • Track: 808 Clap
  • Producer: Felix Snow
  • Album: Complex but Basic EP

Complex but Basic. Flossy, yet lyrically impressive. Familiar, but at the same time fresh and new. As befitting the group's stage name, the Oxymorrons' sound is full of apparent contradictions, but their hybrid style makes perfect sense in practice. Don't believe me? Just hit play on the Queens-bred duo's first Booth feature, 808 Clap. Making its world premiere on our front page, this cut finds brothers K.I. and D showcasing their respective pen games in witty, braggadocious verses. Felix Snow creates a sparse, yet expansive beat, building from minimal percussion and an operatic vocal loop to an epic, orchestral climax. The Oxymorrons' next EP is slated to drop at an undetermined date in 2015. In the meantime, of course, we'll keep you supplied with the latest tunes and release details.
