When Main Attrakionz and Dominant Legs Get Remixed Together, Good Things Happen

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 8:48 AM


Dominant Legs: Sweetly chiming San Francisco indie-pop. Main Attrakionz: Stony Oakland "cloud rap." In the balkanized, pre-millenial music world, never would these twain have met. But 2012, smooth indie and hazy hip-hop is a cross-bay fantasy just waiting to be realized. Courtesy of DJ Ammbush, it has been: This remix finds Attrakionz's Squadda Bambino and Mondre Man waxing polite over the tinkle-tinkle of Dominant Legs' "Make Time for the Boy." And how is it? Er, dreamy, really:

Well, dreamily naive: "I got people who don't like me but I know I'm the best... fuck the world, it's for family now," Mondre Man intones in his usual half-asleep and 100-percent charming drymouth. It works well -- surprisingly so, without coming off gimmicky or pat. So here's to a world (and a Bay Area) where synthy sensitivity and gravity-ignoring bedroom hip-hop are on the same team. Happy listening.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
