HK and Karmin say "Hello" !

In April of 2011 Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan of Karmin blew up on the scene. It was their version of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now" which caused a viral YouTube sensation and subsequent props from hip-hop heavy weights that sent their career soaring into hyper drive. An MTV critic raved about Amy's rapping skills saying "Homegirl is a master emcee. Seriously. Don't let the Charlotte-From-Sex-And-The-City-facade fool you - this girl can THROW IT DOWN. No offense, Busta Rhymes, but I think this girl just schooled you". Not only can she spit, Amy can sing, write and play the guitar too!  After their little blogosphere explosion they performed with The Roots at Tufts University and made an apperance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show . All of which lead to a signing with Epic Records. Their first release "Brokenhearted", which Amy says tells the story of how she and Nick first met, has gone platinum and the second single "Hello" is sprinting up the charts. Not bad for two small town crazy kids in love who, not that long ago, worked as a wedding singer and wrote raw music in their living room with a guitar and a wooden box for a drum.

Hear Karmin's new single "Hello" and learn more about the dynamic duo as HK chats it up with Karmin on "In The Mix with HK" this weekend.

This weekends show is going to be an all out party throw down with custom HK remixes of Pink - "Blow Me", Maroon 5 - "Payphone", Katy Perry - "Wide Awake" and Kelly Clarkson - "Darkside", I've also got a whole new take on Usher - "Scream", Avicii vs Lenny Kravitz -"Superlove", and the brand new one from Elton John's best bud  Madonna - "Turn Up The Radio", The Wanted - "Chasing The Sun" and Nicki Minaj - "Pound The Alarm".  And that's just getting the decks warmed up. I will be pounding out all the hits HK style just for you this weekend!

Remember..."If It's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna're In The Mix with HK".
