As soon as word gets around the office that Flosstradamus is comin’ into town, it is apparent that all of the URB crew is going to the Floss show (well, atleast all of the females). Us URB-ettes know it will be a night of non-stop sweaty hip shakin’ and body-rockin’. Floss hit up the ‘Check Yo' Ponytail’ party at Safari Sams in Hollywood this past Tuesday and we knew we was about to get up get up and get down! Read more for the hangover recap…
Flosstradamus, consisting of of Curt Cameruci (Autobot) and Josh Young (J2K) have been near and dear to the URB fam since they were featured in our Next 100 issue last Apr. Plus, they've played a rack of our parties—we know they are the shizzz when it comes to keeping the dance floor bumpin’ and grindin’ the whole night long 'cause they totally follow the vibe the crowd is spitting back at ‘em.
One of the first things they did when working together was blend Sigur Ros’s “Staralfur” and Twista’s “Overnight Celebrity,” catching the attention of hip music lovers in and outside of their hometown, Chicago. J2K also states that that gave them a reputation for being ‘mash-up’ dj’s, when in fact, “nope, we are not too heavy on those, but we do like juke a lot.” I had to ask a co-worker (our very own dj, Cholo’s Choice, what the hell 'juke' was and he informed me that juke is Chicago’s regional biz, aka extremely-speedy beats.
Floss are about to embark on an overseas tour with fellow Chi-town allstars A-trak and Craze and MC Kid Sister (J2K’s older sister.) Neither of the boys have been to Europe and they are super stoked to not only see the other side of the world but gain recognition musically, as well. J2K’s birthday will fall on a tour stop in Stockholm, Sweden and hey, who knows, maybe they’ll yodel his birthday song.
This very minute, they are getting styling, posing and being photographed for our annual Next 100 issue. It’s all dreamlike to them, as J2K describes, “it’s surreal to be at the top of the URB Next 100. We started out doing parties at a little shitty bar in Chicago for our friends, and their friends. We never really expected it would get to this level, but we’re really glad people are taking and interest in what we’re doing out in the heart of the Midwest.” Well boys and girls, we sure as hell did.
