Artist of the Day: Main Attrakionz

Main Attrakionz love dreaming. The cloud rap duo specialize in ambient soundscapes, carved delicately to provide proper backbone for the MCs' lyrics, and the combination works really well. However, none of us would know about Main Attrakionz if the Internet hadn't bent over backwards for them.

The duo only spread their music through Twitter and Bandcamp. Their 2011 release 808s and Dark Grapes reached astonishing acclaim, especially considering the few methods in which it was spread. The album was an incredibly promising start, too. Stellar tracks like "Bossalinis & Fooliyones" and "Diamond of God" featured ethereal production as well as memorable emceeing. And while the other tracks were more forgettable, they still painted a picture of promise for the upcoming duo.

Here we are in 2012, with Main Attrakionz' debut album released October 23rd, Bossalinis & Fooliyones. The album's production is as rewarding as it was last time, and possibly even cloudier; the rapping is vastly improved, too. Overall, Bossalinis & Fooliyones is a polished version of 808s And Dark Grapes. To be honest, though, the vocals aren't for everyone. Main Attrakionz rap about usual fare in the hip-hop department, and those expecting something different are likely to be disappointed. However, those pining for some incredible production and spirited vocal delivery will find something to love on Bossalinis.
