Review: Mike Posner and Main Attrakionz at Bardot

Mike Posner Bardot Hollywood 05252015 750x410 600x328 Review: Mike Posner and Main Attrakionz at BardotLast Monday, I caught cloud rap duo Main Attrakionz and Mike Posner perform new songs to much delight of the Hollywood crowd at Bardot. Main Attrakionz opened things up quite nicely with wave-y beats, solid rhymes and just a really good presence, I’m super excited for their debut album to come out on Vapor Records later this month. Here’s a song off the upcoming album.

Mike Posner was last to close out the night and he didn’t perform his hit single, Cooler Than Me, but performed many hit songs he wrote for Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and others as well as “Please Don’t Go”, easily one of my favorites he did and what I feel should have been another hit single. I also really liked his striped down version of “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” which was fun to hear him partying with DJs and other famous music folk. (more…)

We also played new releases from Toro Y MoiCape LionSatellite Stories, Von SellArmorsCon Bro Chill and A.W.O.L. featuring Freedom Fry. Also we go in depth with the future of Years and Years and electronica trio from the UK whose crafting a sound similar to fellow UK producers Rudimental and Disclosure combining 90′s R&B elements with house sounds that I’m absolutely loving lately.
