Born Oshane Logan in Jamaica, Khxos spent his early years in the rural parish of St. Elizabeth before immigrating to the U.S. as a teen. Landing in Brooklyn, he made some of his earliest recordings with producer LMR Pro (Kranium, Vybz Kartel) before relocating to South Florida and dropping his debut single “One Touch” in 2016, under the name Khaos.
That same year he released a remix to Drake’s “One Dance” with comedian-turned-artist Trabass which picked up over 3 million on YouTube, and connected with producer Sean Alaric to release his
first EP, Deception .
Changing his name to Khxos to avoid confusion with other similarly-named artists, he released his debut album Dopamine in 2017, amassing over 450k streams. The project, also produced by Alaric, cemented his reputation as a maestro of dancehall “gyal tunes,” with each of its 13 tracks dealing with the topics of sex and relationships.
2019 is proving to be Khxos’ most productive year to date. On March 8 — International Women’s Day — he released Melanin , an EP celebrating black beauty featuring cameos from Blvk Hero, Royal Blu, Zagga and Konshens. Other releases this year have included
collaborations with Noah Powa (“Gal Getta”) and Stalk Ashley (“Feelings”) as well as an appearance on Konshens’ Badman Vs. Nice Guy project, on the track “Space Flight.”
Released this summer, “Tambrin” is proving to be Khxos’ biggest hit to date. Produced by Track Starr (HoodCelebrityy’s “Walking Trophy”), the scorching dancehall banger gained its legs on social media after Jamaican Instagram comedians began posting videos of
themselves singing along to Khxos’ falsetto hook. It wasn’t long before DJs from New York’s Bobby Konders (Hot 97) to Jamaica’s Chromatic Sound crew gravitated to the track, cementing its status as a must-play tune. With Delicious Vinyl Island — the new Caribbean music imprint from iconic hip-hop label Delicious Vinyl — picking up the track and getting behind future Khxos releases, the sky’s the limit for this rising Jamaican talent.
