The Oxymorrons have been making music their way since the Queens bred brothers joined forces in 2009. After years spent playing and touring with other groups, it was clearly time for K.I. and D to set the New York scene ablaze in the family name. 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
Those that are a part of the Oxymorrons €śGeeklife Movement have coined their eclectic sound Klasher Music€ as it truly is a combination of all the genres that had an affect on the brothers as kids. Producing, writing and recording all their own material allows the Oxy's to seamlessly integrate what they hear in their head, into what the rest of us hear, eliminating the middleman. After playing various shows around New York City, the Oxymorrons caught their first break opening for Lupe Fiasco. The group continued to make music and play shows, leading them to the 2010 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX where they met and developed a strong friendship with Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes.
In Fall 2011, The Oxymorrons connected with Jay-Z's company, Artful Dodger to release their mix tape, "STFU and Listen". The project had two successful release events; one held at the Roc A Wear showroom in Manhattan hosted by Sway Calloway of MTV and the other in Los Angeles hosted by DJ Skee. They have shared the stage with chart-toping and buzz-worthy acts like Gym Class Heroes, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Ke$sha, Das Racist, Yelawolf, Bad Rabbits, Rihanna, Neon Hitch, and more. In November 2012, a video for the track "TKO" featuring and co-written by the Oxymorrons was released by Wynter Gordon to critical acclaim. The Oxymorrons are currently recording their fifth project "For Fun & Games" and itâ€™s expected to release in 2013, so stay tuned!
