There's a touch of psychedelia around Main Attrakionz.
Perhaps it's the production style, which seems to take Dilla's soft-as-butter beats and add a sense of dope-smoke relaxation. Maybe it's the flow, with Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N. both relaxed to point of being horizontal. Or maybe it's something in the water.
Main Attrakionz are bound by a sense of place, with debut album 'Bossalinis & Fooliyones' making frequent references to life in Oakland, California. Shooting a video for new cut 'Do It For The Bay' the group decided to do the logical thing and shoot it in the bay.
Cruising around on a borrowed boat, the industrial centre of the harbour unfolds as the camera zooms past giving a sense of background to the group. Showcasing different locations in Oakland, it probably won't please the California tourist board but it definitely aids the hype.
Watch 'Do It For The Bay' below.
