MP3: Main Attrakionz x Tynethys – “USB”
Brooklyn Vegan Debuts Final Single From Upcoming Collaborative Mixtape, Out October 22
Critical Praise for Tynethys:
“…a new wave of pillowy-soft West Coast tunes.” – Pitchfork
“…proves that math is for losers and rap is awesome.” – Vice NOISEY
Indie rap favorites Main Attrakionz and upstart producer Tynethys will release their new mixtape, the essentially self-titled Main Attrakionz x Tynethys next week, on October 22. Originally planned for release earlier this year, the Bay Area rappers and Sacramento producer hit a snag when the hard drive on which their entire album was saved, crashed. Rather than attempt to re-record the old music, the three, well known for the prolific nature of their musical output, got back in the studio and recorded an entire new mixtape. The trio’s latest single came after a usual late night smoke session, with Tynethys flipping a vocal sample from Final Fantasy to bring us the cloudy high-pitched entry that is “USB”.
Main Attrakionz x Tynethys, was announced a few weeks back, with Pitchfork premiering lead single “On1.” Today, in conjunction with Brooklyn Vegan, the trio is excited to bring the final single, “USB,” to fans as the last glimpse before the mixtape is released next week.

To hear him tell it, Sacramento’s Tynethys’ (pronounced “Teen-this”) musical style is like “selling crack in a Sub-Zero outfit.” For the MC/producer, Mortal Kombat is just one of his inspirations, along with local rap heroes Mac Dre, C-Bo and T-Nutty. Producing and writing his songs in the hours between midnight and sunrise, Tynethys is a jovial, pensive creator with a stoner’s laugh and street vernacular. Tyne’s style is a fuzzy free-form that speaks not only to his worldview from his bedroom, but many like him. With the forthcoming Thyluxe Edition follow-up to last year’s Lost Angeles album, Tynethys believes he’s hitting his best stride. “I feel like it is the truest representation of me. I did it without trying too hard.” Besides his own work, Tynethys appeals to many collaborators. On October 22, he will release a project with Oakland duo Main Attrakionz. “I really fucked with these dudes. They came to Sacramento, and I literally showed up at their hotel room with a lab,” recalls T.P., who arrived with a portable studio. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar, Raekwon and Evidence, it’s only a matter of time until Tynethys transports his sound around the globe.
