Flosstradamus are dance music’s underground kings, godfathers of an intoxicating new sound and aesthetic that has invaded bassbins and computer screens around the globe. DJ Sliink is a like-minded speaker infiltrator, launching his beats from the New Jersey bricks into another dimension altogether. Nomads is their long-awaited collab, out Tuesday (4/2), a strobe-lit explosion of neck snapping riffs, smoked out sub bass, and rave dreams made undeniably real. “CROWD CTRL” and “Test Me” (now with a bonus UZ remix) are the year’s most devastating dance hybrids, rewound night after night by the world’s biggest DJs. Nomads doesn’t just run the trap, but the whole damn galaxy.
Stream “CROWD CTRL” below and peep Flosstradamus on their “Underground Nights” Tour with DJ Spinz, hitting NYC tonight at Webster Hall with special guest Para One.
