DJ Duo from Chicago consisting of J2K and DJ Autobot (Josh Young and Curt Cameruci). They gained popularity building mashups out of well known songs, while maintaining a consistent dance flow, making them dance hall masters and quick local favorites.
After frothing local enthusiasm like a Starbucks barrista, they started touring and have played Pitchfork, Rothbury, SXSW, and even the hallowed recesses of Philly’s B clubs.
After making URB’s “Next 100” list they took off like one of those 2-liter bottle rockets, building a larger audience and booking more shows. About this time, J2K’s sister, Kid Sister, started making it big (this was just before Kanye spit a few lines on one of her tracks, making her well known).
They’ve played with Chromeo, Cool Kids, and A-Trak as well as a lot of other, lesser-well-knowns but equally talented folk.
In 2009, they collaborated with NIKE + to create a repetitive exercise mix tape consisting of new De La Soul material.
In 2011, Flosstradamus released the EP, Jubilation, through Fool’s Gold. They released another EP, Total Recall, on February 23, 2012 through Jeffrees/Mad Decent.
Their track “Don’t Trip” was featured in the 2015 video game, Need for Speed (2015).
