“Main Attrakionz tend towards beats that are dense and immersive, warm and often dark. There’s an ease to it, the sounds are deep enough that a willing listener can submerge fully into their songs, but there’s also a restlessness, evident in shifting structures and sudden blossoms of melody. Unexpectedly contemporary touchstones such as Björk and Imogen Heap are splintered and reprocessed as spacious, blurred anthems, while references to MC Eiht, the Clipse, and Pete Rock ground the song in rap’s legacy”.
Oakland duo Main Attrakionz perform live at the New Museum on August 26, 2011 at 7PM.
