No one has a greater hand influencing the Trap game like Flosstradamus. The 'Hoodie Boyz' have recently released their B⚠NNED 3D mixtape following their previous B⚠NNED and B⚠NNED 2 mixes that garnered a huge underground following for these Chicago-based DJs. Their latest mixtape, however, can be bought in the form of a vaporizer on their merchandise site.
How does this work?
The official Flosstradamus vaporizer works like any other vaporizer, but this stainless steel paraphernalia comes attached with a 8 GB hard drive that has the new 3D mix on it. You can smoke your favorite aromatic herb while plugging in the tunes of these Trap lords, which is essentially the Hoodie Boyz lifestyle. You can buy the merchandise here and listen to their mega mixtape below, courtesy of Thissongissick.com:
Trap stars? No, this is not a piece about the latest and greatest reality TV series, it's an introduction to Trap, the European music genre that's taking the States by storm! Trap is an EDM off-shoot based on a catchy, yet stripped-down 808-style with repeated hip-hop vocal loops. Thanks to artists like Diplo and Flosstradamus, as well as another crusader of the genre, All Trap Music (a YouTube channel filled with the best and brightest of trap stars), trap is creating a niche. Joonbug shot a few questions over to the people at All Trap about their history, a trap event in NYC, and much more:
Watch out for this one: ENFERNO premieres his remix of trap heavy track, 'Crowd CTRL' by Flosstradamus and DJ SLiiNK. The original track was one of the biggest hits of the urban EDM scene this year, and now ENFERNO is surging his latest remix with a 'Baltimore meets Jersey Club Bass' type of sound. This remix is also made available for free downloads on Soundcloud.
Listen to ENFERNO's tantalizing and upbeat remix below.
Chicago natives, Flosstradamus, have received much praise for their live performances, riddled with their exclusive bass and trap music. They have just announced that they will be doing a nince-city tour this December, hitting major cities from New York to Los Angeles and their hometown, Chicago, for NYE. Supporting acts for the tour will include Been Trill, Alex Young, and DJ Spinz. Check out the official tour trailer below. Tickets for all of their upcoming shows can be purchased here.
DJ and producer Diplo popularized the phrase, “mad decent,” when he created the LA-based record label in 2006. Artists signed to the label include, but are by no means limited to: Baauer, Dillon Francis, Cookers, Flosstradamus, Major Lazer, Rusko and Zeds Dead.
Two years later, Mad Decent began hosting block parties, and up until last year, MDBP was both a free and for all ages event. In 2012 MDBP reached Toronto and four major cities in the U.S.: Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. With bigger and better artists than ever before, it was inevitable that, this year, the parties would become ticketed events. The block parties began on July 19th in Calgary, AB and will conclude on September 15th in San Diego, CA. The remaining cities that will be/already have been played include: Las Vegas, Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Ft Lauderdale, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Dallas, Detroit, New Braunfels, and Los Angeles (see schedule and purchase tickets here).
Flosstradamus stands at the forefront of fame in the endless abyss that so clearly defines todays electronic music industry. As Chicago’s golden boys and one of the premier names in what is generally defined as “trap” music, this unique duo has risen to the limelight over the past 12 months. Having previously dabbled in other genres before taking on their instrumental, electronically infused hip-hop identity, Flosstradamus has been rebirthed into an astoundingly popular mogul. Having played shows around the country and collaborating with some of the best names in todays production game, the group has become the ultimate party starter.
As a sequel to their last in your face, traptastic mix, Banned 2 is destined to deliver the same twerk filled expose of the 808 sound that has become so insanely popular over the past year. Complete with original collabs with DJ Sliink A-Trak and Danny Brown as well as exclusives from the uber-talented Alex Young, Hucci, and DJ Carnage, this mix is destined to light up the dancefloor and get any eager crowd “Turnt Up”.
Give Banned 2 a listen and do not miss this high-energy duo when they come to your city.
Born in the dirty South, trap music has long been tied to strictly hip hop and rappers but as music is ever evolving trap has since become a sub genre of EDM thanks to Diplo, Flosstradamus and Baauer. To put it simply, trap can be classifed as hip hop intertwined with dutch house synths and basslines found in dubstep. If you're on the fence about delving into this particular type of music listen to the tracks below and see for yourself!
1. Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch - Sweet Nothing (Diplo Trapstyle Remix)
2. Major Lazer - Original Don (Flosstradamus Remix)
3. Azealia Banks - 212 (DjSliink Remix)
4. Zedd - Clarity (Ookay Remix)
