Flosstradamus became club kings by breaking new sounds around the world, from their earliest DJ blends to high-energy hybrids like last winter’s Jubilation EP, featuring Danny Brown, Kid Sister and all manner of juked-out 808 madness.
After setting SXSW and WMC on fire with a crazy new live set, them Floss boys are back to reclaim the throne once more with Jubilation 2.0, featuring remixes from Lunice, JWLS and Sich Mang, and the brand new burner “Rollup” (which you can listen to below). Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport!
The Echoplex was the place to be last month, with the Fool’s Gold crew taking over the Check Yo Ponytail party for a night of raps, revelry and BRUISER MOTHERFUCKIN BRIGADE! Danny Brown headlined a night that also featured Kid Sister (backed by Sinden and J2K of Flosstradamus), Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B. Check out Spin’s gallery of shots by Nathaniel Turner, a bunch of Shadowscene flicks, video of Schoolboy Q coming out for “Blunt After Blunt,” as well as a megacollection of photos and videos from our homie Glenjamn! Peep more from him after the jump.
If that’s not enough, check the party on NBC tonight when Danny makes his network television debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, airing tonight (well, Thursday morning if you want to get technical) at 1:35 am after Jimmy Fallon. Set them TiVOs. Read More
Now make that muthafugga hammer time! Grab this mash from Flosstradamus’ DJ sets (featuring the Kid Sister vocal from their collab “Luuk Out Gurl” over Big Sean’s “Ass”) over on the Floss Soundcloud. And get the original version on their Jubilation EP, out now on Fool’s Gold.
Tomorrow (Tuesday, 1/24) a gang of Fools are hitting up the Check Yo Ponytail party in LA for a full-on FG takeover. They loving the crew! Danny Brown headlines, and he’s bringing his Main Attrakionz homies along for the party. Party Supplies will be providing mega MPC action, and supreme deejay Thee Mike B will be holding it down on the turntables all night. And with the brand-new addition of Kid Sister, you reeeeeally don’t wanna miss this one.
Kid Sis shows love to some friends, fam and collaborators on her new Beatport chart. Of course, her own “Mickey” and “Luuk Out Gurl” gotta be in there too! Grab them on the new Kid Sister and Flosstradamus EPs, respectively.
Here’s some Christmas cheer from Ms. Sister and Mr. Raff, bringing the rice out with a snappin’ carol of their very own. Update: now with video! Peep the Fox Hills Mall adventure…
If any elves bring you iTunes gift cards this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with Kid Sister’s Kiss & Tell EP or her “Luuk Out Gurl” with Flosstradamus (off their Jubilation EP), both out now. Read More
Last week them Floss boys threw a party in Chicago to celebrate their new Jubilation EP. And who showed up but Kid Sister, to perform their collab “Luuk Out Gurl.” Peep the good times above, and grab Jubliationon iTunes now (pick up Kid Sister’s new Kiss & Tell EP while you’re at it!)
Who better to write the book on fun than Kid Sister? The Kiss & Tell EP offers four of Kid Sister’s latest jams with a diverse crew of collaborators. “Mickey” is a club workout from DJ innovators Nadastrom (who just helped pilot Skrillex’s sold-out Mothership tour), while “Hide N Seek” pairs Kid Sis with rap absurdist Riff Raff and bass maestros Sinden & 5kin&Bone5. Hip-hop hero Scoop Deville (Snoop, Game, Fat Joe) mans the boards for “Cliq Claq” (as featured in Stella McCartney’s recent runway shows) as well as a brand-new remix of KS mixtape favorite “Gucci Rag Top,” now featuring a guest verse from fellow Fool’s Gold spitter Danny Brown.
Still, it’s Kid Sister’s inimitable personality on and off the mic that brings these team-ups to life with swaggering verses and clever, lipstick-smeared punchlines to spare. Just like the pulpy romance novels that inspired it’s title, Kiss & Tell offers pure pleasure for everyone. Word to the rap game Danielle Steel! Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport (and check KS guesting on the new Flosstradamus EP too!)
To get you in the mood, here’s a free download of “Mickey,” featuring Kid Sis and dem Nadastrom boys at their bounciest.
Chicago DJ heroes Flosstradamus are back with the brand new Jubilation EP, their first official release since 2009′s “Big Bills” with Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. Named after a long-gone 90s nightclub in the city’s south suburbs, Jubilation uses the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass of juke house as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds. Led by the Kid Sister collab “Luuk Out Gurl” (which Chicago Reader praises for “somehow bending footwork’s freakier elements to the rules of a radio-friendly pop song”) and the XXX-rated Danny Brown collab “From The Back,” Jubilation showcases Flosstradamus’ club-ready studio skills, honed by years of constant touring around the globe.
