After being spotted by internationally renowned labels and media, new artist XXX from South Korea released their debut album [KYOMI].


July 9th at 00:00, XXX finally unleashed their debut album [KYOMI] via Melon, Genie, Naver and other various online music stores.  Beasts And Natives, the sub-culture agency who represents XXX, simultaneously unveiled “Flight Attendant (승무원)”‘s music video; a dot animation clip customized for the album single.

Composed of rapper Kim Ximya and producer FRNK, XXX is a newly formed duo who have proven to push the boundaries of various music genres and break free from today’s typical music equation.
The album is a rap-electronic hybrid with smooth yet unexpected transitions.

Kim Ximya’s straight up and brutally honest rap along with FRNK’s avant-garde beats and innovative sounds make KYOMI exceedingly experimental and genre-defying.  In terms of structure, the album single “Flight Attendant (승무원)” is sufficiently mated with 7 other uniquely diverse tracks.

The creator behind the music video for “승무원 (Flight Attendant)” is none other than Paris based animator Mattis Dovier.  Already known to many as a reputable young illustrator, Mattis Dovier has been recognized for his gruesome yet beautiful 8 bit dot animated works.  His outstanding portfolio were first put to limelight when he was “carefully curated and handpicked” by Vimdeo Staff Picks, which was an important milestone for Mattis’ career.  The music video mostly takes place inside an airplane, which symbolises today’s consumer society expressed in a beautiful yet gruesome way with spine-tingling twist.

Other prominent music individuals have also contributed to the album including DJ / producer 250, mostly known for his official remix of f(x)’s “4 Walls” and producing E Sens’ “Flight“.

Vlado Meller, the undisputed mastering engineer who mastered KYOMI, is a two-time GRAMMY award winner, and has worked on hit records and world class artists including Kanye West, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Oasis and Frank Ocean.

Even before their official debut, XXX has already been spotted by internationally renowned labels and the media. Their music was unprecedentedly praised by certified DJ from Beast 1, the official radio station of Apple users worldwide.  And the world-widely respected French brand Maison Kitsuné‘s Hot Stream Channel celebrated their 100th track with XXX’s music, having their true worth defined globally.  Hypetrak, one of the leading online music magazines, soon picked up the story to show support.

XXX Debut Album KYOMI is now available via all local online music stores including Melon and Genie.
KYOMI on iTunes available starting July 9th @ 3:00 PM KST.
