RHCollaborations is proud to present the (F**K) Yellow Lights Mixtape by Klassik and ¡OYE!. The ever more recognizable duo of Milwaukee artists Klassik and ¡OYE! join forces once again to deliver a project that highlights the accumulation of their work together while also debuting several unreleased tracks. Both artists have received critical acclaim for previous releases, including Klassik’s “Death of a Beatmaker EP”, ¡OYE!’s “In My Mind EP”, and “The Brown Bomber”. The mixtape highlights the memorable work from these projects, along with features on projects from fellow Milwaukee artist Blizz McFly while also giving fans a taste of what is in store for both of these promising artists.
Klassik debuts “Baggage” on this mixtape, which features ¡OYE! and discusses some of Klassik’s trials and tribulations as an up and coming artist and in life over symphonic production. “I’mGood” is an unreleased track, which displays Klassik’s lyrical capability over the classic J Dilla beat “African Rhythms”. Finally, Klassik officially releases the single for his upcoming album “In The Making” called “Moon Rock” on the tape. The bass heavy, hard-hitting production begs to be played as loud as possible and exemplifies Klassik’s exquisite wordplay.
¡OYE! officially releases the tracks from the set of impressive music videos for “When I’m Small (Remix)” and “Misfits” on Yellow Lights. Both were shot in the UK and the “When I’m Small (Remix) was currently selected for the International Student Film Festival, London 2012. Yellow Lights contains the remix to “Grey Clouds,” which features a dubstep take on the song from the mixtape’s host, DJ *Hitmayng. “Lil Boy Blues” is another unreleased track that demonstrates ¡OYE!’s ability to rap over a remarkable range of production and genres of music. Never before heard “Quiet on the Set” features soulful production and concludes the mixtape on a high note.
DJ *Hitmayng, who has worked with both artists at live performances over the past year, hosts the mixtape and provides a unique remix’s perfect for the club setting in “Party Hard”. His skills are also featuring on remixes to “Extraordinary”, “Misfits (Remix)”.
The title of the mixtape goes deeper than both artists disgust for yellow traffic lights. It’s a statement of disapproval when it comes slowing down and making excuses regarding their artistic craft. Instead, both are speeding up, continuing to grow, taking risks, and pushing the envelope of what an underground hip hop artist can deliver to their fans. Both artists stand out amongst the competition in their own ways but complement each other’s talents through the tape.
