Deep End by NoOxYgeN is a vivid and stimulating piece of music and performance that exposes the artist’s sound and approach to creativity in an eye-catching, colorful manner.
“Michael III & Kelly Ru,” also known as “NoOxYgeN,” are a budding music duet. “NoOxYgeN” is a diverse young pair specializing in hip-hop and rap. Deep End is their most recent release.
Crisp and insistent NoOxYgeN effortlessly kick off their new single in magnificently confident style.
Combining the multi-layered, free-flowing orchestral backdrop and Michael’s classic-style rap delivery creates something truly unique right now. Deep End has wonderful feelings. It’s upbeat and enthusiastic — short verses pave the way for another simple but effective and memorable hook section.
The song’s hook contains Kelly Ru’s vocals and provides a moment of melody that breaks up the tempo of the verses and offers a layer of lightness that blends wonderfully within the surrounding sounds.
The vocal feature gives the whole thing an additional structure and some simple, effective, intimate, and late-night lyrics to broaden that reach. This is a collaboration that follows its own rules. And for that reason and all of the above, it works well.
The second time you hear Deep End, those first few moments of music have a satisfying impact. The transition from the delicacy of the intro to the far from typical chaos of those bass lines and everything else that follows (creating the soundscape all over you, brick by brick, but always unpredictable) gives the whole thing a distinct sense of freedom.
