Bio

Alternative Hip-Hop duo [Kimoxavi]

No one can deny that hip-hop has become the biggest mainstream genre of the pop culture all over the world. But as the genre becomes broader, it’s artistic and poetic nature and experimental attitude has been blurred.

[Kimoxavi] is alternative hip-hop/R&B duo composed of Ray Hill who has been producing music for 15 years in Korea and France and underground rapper Fa Tal who has been rapping in Korea for 10 years.

Their new single [fxxk luv] is a 5-minute song. It’s a mixture of Hip-hop/R&B and dream tinged electronic sounds with, lyrics written in two languages (Korean, and English). It's serious but easy to sing along to, exhaustive, yet empathetic.

You can sense how hard they agonized to be emotionally poignant and yet not to be seen too light-hearted.

Their way of making music is pretty unique.

Producer Ray Hill not only uses both digital sequencing and sampling techniques to create his sound but also performs all samples as well as sings simultaneously during live performances.

Rapper Fa Tal also plays synth and samplers to add more sound to the music when he is not rapping. Together they make their music sound very authentic. It’s easy to feel that their sound is not expensive ‘presets’ from the instruments. It’s 15 years of experience.

Ray Hill was born in Brooklyn, debut as Korean Hip-hop musician in a group called ‘Uptown’ 
then worked with renowned artists in South Korea such as MC SNIPER , JIN DA MC (USA) , Sheek louch (USA), moved to France and participated in making ELECTRO-TEK Vol.1 & Vol.2 which sold half a million copies in Europe and was the top 10 best selling album of the year in Europe back in 2008 . He was on the compilation called COAST 2 COAST vol.34 hosted by Pharrell Williams among Tyga, Common, Pusha T, N.E.RD and more. 
As an ELECTRONIC / URBAN music producer, he produced many hits in France 
with artist such as Ophelie WINTERS, EKLIPS, MAC GREGOR, SEFYU, KAARIS to name a few 
including ‘Lodia’ who is now known as the R&B singer ‘Suran’ in Korea.

Fa Tal began his career as a rapper back in 2007 in the underground scene in Busan, Korea. He was a member of hip-hop crew called "Sulea Japgi" the crew started to gain their reputation by opening for "Jiggy Fellaz" and Buckwilds. Then 
Fa Tal began a new crew called MoneyMakers in 2008, with J-flow currently the Leader of " Hippie Was A Jypsy".

After signing a record deal with global indie music label ‘Uniquetunes records’ the duo have been preparing to perform worldwide. 
“You can feel the spirit of alternative hip-hop in our new song ‘fxxk luv’ through our released live video clip” so they said.
