Queens five-piece Oxymorrons is a high energy, experimental hip hop collective. Falling somewhere between sample-happy hip hop breaks and beats and chart-topping pop choruses — all on a bed of funk and rock — everything these guys do is meant to please and make you dance. They’re serious about good times, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek bits to drag a smile out of even the most serious, jaded music fans. Their bag is full of musical tricks, and they pull out all the stops on their new EP to show you a good time. They brought the fun to the studio at Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this exclusive session.
The Complex But Basic EP is available now.
