A project known for its heavy beats and being at the forefront of the dance genre called "trap", Curt Cameruci (aka Autobot) and Josh Young (aka J2K) began Flosstradamus as a series of DJ parties in their hometown of Chicago.
Word of mouth about their eclectic mashup of electro, house, minimal techno, and sleazy R&B quickly spread, and their parties would often sell out at a moment's notice. Their monthly party continued to be a heavy draw during the mid-2000s, with people from all over the nation traveling to Chicago to experience their performances. In 2011 the project became an official recording act with the release of the Jubilation EP on Fool's Gold. The 2013 EP, Total Recall, was released through the Mad Decent imprint Jeffree's, then in 2015, they joined the Ultra label with the EP Soundclash. ~ Rob Theakston, Rovi
