It’s no secret that electronic dance music is skyrocketing in popularity. Chicago’s own DJs J2K and Autobot combined music-mashin’ forces to create a band that sells out every performance it plays, Flosstradamus.
In April of 2006, Flosstradamus made URB Magazine’s “The Next 100″ and have been nothing short of successful ever since. Flosstradamus has performed at huge music events such as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork Music Festival and South by Southwest.
In 2007, Flosstradamus worked with Vice Records to release an album that was part of Toyota’s Scion “CD Sampler” series. The band also undertook Fancy Footwork, an international tour in which they played alongside Chromeo. Flosstradamus also allied with Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek to generate their first original production, “Big Bills.”
With all of their fancy button-pushin’, knob-turnin’, and effect-generatin’, Flosstradamus mixes everything live and knows how to read a crowd’s energy to produce heart pumping mash-ups. In recent years, the band has released the singles “Luuk Out Gurl” and “Total Recall.” “Look Out Gurl” has received over 46,000 hits on YouTube alone. Want to know what all the hype is about?

Luckily for all you raving Austinites out there, Flosstradamus will be performing at The Belmont on June 1, 2012 with DJ Goon. You can buy tickets here for only $10! You don’t want to miss this chance to jam out and have some techno fun!
