World meet Cami-Oh and her game changing debut album Discordia
It all started with a dm.
Cami-Oh and The 83rd from Sermon 3 Recordings had known each other from both being involved in the NYC DIY experimental community, were generally supportive of each other online, and constantly at the same events.
So went Cami casually mentioned to Sermon 3 on IG that she was releasing an album, we were excited to hear and generally just stoked on the idea.
But WHAT WE HEARD WHEN WE PRESSED PLAY…
was one of the hardest, forward thinking, experimental, beautifully vocal laiden, lemme bang you out with these drums rite quick, crashing timbral, sonically interesting dance floor ready LPs we’d ever heard.
And so were beyond excited to announce that Sermon 3 Recordings is releasing Cami-Oh’s album thru our label, and premiering her LP, here on S3R News.
World Meet Cami-Oh. And bare witness her earth shattering debut album, Discordia.

Discordia is a sonic joyride packed into a 9 track album featuring NYC hometown heroes like Buttress and Bonnie Baxter. Packed full of engaging moments and ever changing, we had to go behind the LP and bring some context to how Discordia came to be, along with Cami-Oh at this stage in her life. See below:
S3R News: Discordia is such an eclectic sounding album that pushes limits on the dance floor and beyond. Curious as to what your musical and production background is?
Cami-Oh: I started to play drums at the age of 12 and always loved to make a lot of noise vocally. I tried my hand at guitar and piano but always ended up doing drums and backup vocals for bands throughout high school. It wasn’t until I got into music production later that I began exploring electronic producers. My first experience with that was circuit bending a children’s Casio keyboard and recording into Audacity without any microphone. After I discovered Ableton I began to make tracks with VST synths and my voice. If I hadn’t also lived in the UK and then London for a while, I would’ve never discovered such a wide range of dance styles that influenced my productions.
