making babies in mixed meter:
Rooted in the sweaty dance floor revivals that have defined their live shows over the past five years, Brooklyn’s “8-piece Afro-funk-hop Juggernaut” mamarazzi serves up a deliciously greasy dish with spices cultivated from across the planet. Spontaneously combusting under the careless scientific supervision of a group of Wesleyan University (MGMT, Das Racist, Santigold, etc) alumni, mamarazzi has since been on its perpetual quest to leave no genre behind and no hip unshaken. The band likens its sound to a laced grapefruit: tart funk, acidic groove, pulp-n-rind hip hop, and nectar of ancient lullaby. Think of an orgy with Fela Kuti, Thom York, Maceo Parker and Lauryn Hill. Then stop thinking about that.
The following celebrities have heard of mamarazzi: Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Seth Rogen, Javier Bardem, Steve Buscemi, Willem Dafoe, Susan Sarandon, John Legend, Todd Barry, Luis Guzman and New York Mets Manager Terry Collins. See for yourself why the New York Times raves: “mamarazzi”
sweat. dance. love. repeat.
There are other “mamarazzi”s out there in the world (wide web). The band mamarazzi is not to be confused with either the group of adoring mother/photographers or the Filipino soap opera by the same name.
