Another new music round-up to gear you into the weekend.
Oxymorrons – ‘Brunch’
Hell bent on changing the perception of “urban” music, Oxymorrons have cultivated a signature sound that seamlessly blends hip-hop and rock.

The track is from their highly anticipated upcoming new project Gateway Drug and was produced by Hustle Standard and mixed by Grammy-winning music maker Ken Lewis (Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars).
The Weekend and Kendrick Lamar are back with another collaboration for the stacked Black Panther soundtrack that includes the likes of SZA, Travis Scott, and Future among many others. This track has the same feel of many of the tracks on The Weeknd’s 2016 critically acclaimed effort ‘Starboy’, and is without a doubt an exciting lead-in to the highly anticipated film and its upcoming release.
