Welcome to the AUDIBLE MAINFRAME, where man meets machine and where analog vs. digital is a way of life.
Audible Mainframe was conceived in Boston, MA in May, 2003 and relocated to Long Beach, CA in late 2006. Audible Mainframe (AMF), known for their high-energy shows, is a six-piece band that appeals to crowds of all musical tastes with their unique brand of "Future Throwback Hip Hop". Their combination of experimental meets true school hip-hop, gives AMF a fresh, eclectic sound that sets them apart from the rest. AMF has performed with well-known artists like Blackalicious, Damian Marley, Common, LMFAO, Wale, K-OS and served as the backing band for hip-hop legend Slick Rick. The band was also chosen to record a live band re-creation of the classic hip-hop album 'Dah Shinin' with Smiff N' Wessun.
Audible Mainframe includes six musicians comprised of a vocalist/emcee, guitar, bass, drummer, keyboards/trumpet, and a DJ who combine their musical talent with the realities of everyday life in pure, hip hop form. Vocalist and Emcee, Exposition (a.k.a. Expo), takes the crowd on a journey of poverty, anger, happiness, and revolution through his masterful diction and rhyme.
The group's work schedule includes playing shows up and down the California coast, as well as Texas, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada, all the while living up to the reputation they developed in Boston as one of the best live bands around. In between their own studio albums and live shows, AMF has lent its collective talents to a number of charity events such as a benefit for Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina victims; a Darfur benefit at The Knitting Factory; a Burma benefit at UCLA; Holiday benefit for families of Political Prisoners; Veteran's Day benefit for the Salvation Army; and Downtown LA's At The Park After Dark event, serving at-risk youth. AMF truly live their message.
After their 2004 debut album 'Framework', AMF recorded the follow up EP 'War To Be One', which picked up where 'Framework' left off. AMF's third studio album 'Transients' is their most comprehensive album yet, reflecting the journey the band has been on for the last six years and displaying the maturation of both band and sound. Transients is available on iTunes, all major digital outlets and select retail stores.
