In all honesty, it took me a minute to adjust to their sound because it sounded so alternative to other music around at the time. But when I put my iPod on shuffle, I soon found myself asking ‘What the fuck is this amazingness?’ whenever their tracks came on. My membership to the Main Attrakionz fan club was confirmed when I heard a sample of The Delphonics’, La-La Means I Love You on My Only Love Song.
Their tracks often sound like two songs playing simultaneously, but while one may be a hard boom-bap style beat, the other is a soothing harp on a constant loop. Perfectly selected samples are manipulated to the extent that they often sound like they are being played backwards or way too fast.
As 50% of Main Attrakionz, eighteen year old MondreM.A.N has just dropped his new mixtape, Dope Since ’91. The mixtape displays the same abstract style, including a track with a chorus consisting solely of the names Willy Wonka and James Brown.
