When Oreo Jones debuted his Halloween costume last year Black Fabio, no one expected it to spawn a concept mixtape that keeps you dancing and laughing front to back. Nine months later and with the help of Action Jackson, that is exactly what’s been created. Just as Fabio was never constrained by wearing a shirt, OJ and Jackson chose not to be encumbered by genre and drew from anything including rap to post-punk to moombahton. The “Black Fabio” mixtape is an unique collection of 14 tracks that tell the saga of the titular character. Starting with the title track and moving forward through “Niagara Falls”, Oreo and Action prove why they are two of the most creative emerging artists. “Black Fabio” is available for FREE DOWNLOAD or STREAM now!
Who is Oreo Jones? In the spring of 2010, Oreo Jones took the hip-hop and indie music scenes of Indianapolis by storm with the release of his Delicious EP featuring the break-out single “Good Times”. Since that time he has steadily built his fan base with a number of strong collaborations and features like on his “Oreo Jones & Friends” EP. Oreo is also cooking up a new season of his cooking show Let’s Do Lunch with guests DJ Limelight, Gunner of X103, Rob and Dave of the Melody Inn, and Wayne of Barfly just to name a few. Oreo is currently completing his first full length album Super Model Death Dive that should be out sometime soon. Make sure to checkout the lead single “Cordon Bleu’s” video! If you don’t know who Oreo Jones is, this summer is a perfect time to get familiar!
Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier up and coming DJs in the country. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, dance music, old school classics, reggae, rock, and everything in between. His productions are diverse as well, having remixed artists such as Passion Pit, Hall and Oates, and Smokey Robinson. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock. In 2007, he partnered with Flufftronix to form Rad Summer, a promotion and booking company based in Bloomington, IN. Rad Summer has now expanded Philadelphia, PA and Indianapolis, IN along with the inclusion of a record label.Released April 23, 2012
