The Oxford Circus
Imagine, a sonically euphoric musical playground, hidden deep within Hip-Hop. A place that resides in Brooklyn, NY, where lyricism and the heart of Hip-Hop’s true origins live and breathe.
At times it may seem that just like Brooklyn, Hip-Hop is in the midst of a reconstruction period known as gentrification. Losing its way to new audiences and strangers of the culture, it’s as if true lyricists are now the “black sheep” of Hip-Hop. But, if you can make your way to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, not far from Jay-Z’s Marcy Ave, you will find the omniscient Oxford Circus. Conveniently all are welcome; come #jointhecircus as DeVante Myles himself often tweets.
Created by freshman newcomer DeVante Myles, Oxford Circus is more than a movement, it is a way of life for those who may feel like an outsider, or that they do not belong in the current state of Hip-Hop. For the Hip-Hop head who appreciates quality production, lyrics, countless bars, the beauty of punch lines, and music that is way beyond its creator’s years, this is where you want to be.
Releasing his debut album “Pants Up” on October 20, 2017, DeVante Myles has entered the game with a message,
“I want listeners to walk away with a different perspective on situations in life through this music, giving them a solid body of work that they can relate to with a creative bounce.”
“Rectify,” Myles’ first single from “Pants Up,” signifies his drive to “Rectify the Game”. This is the beginning of his rap dynasty as a lyrical mastermind and musical outlier. With over 200 songs written and recorded, DeVante pulls creative inspiration from musical classics that incorporate Hip-Hop’s diamond era known as the 90’s.
With the 18 year anniversary of Mos Def’s debut album “Black on Both Sides” just last week, capture that same exact spirit in 2017 by purchasing the debut album of DeVante Myles’ “Pants Up” available on all major platforms.
