Flosstradamus is a Chicago DJ Duo consisting of J2K (Josh Young) and DJ Autobot (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. But they don’t start nor do they stop with the mashup. They are cunning tricksters of the booty shake, playing whatever will make people get off the seat and step to the beat.
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 (ironic name, eh?) 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.
After mixing for years, in 2008 Big Bills came out, marking the first home-brewed production for the Floss. The polished and happy-beated dance song features Caroline Polachek and has fans repeating it like a romantic repeats a Jane Austen movie (ie. till your roommate deletes the MP3).
Riff Raff is a rapper who got his start on MTV’s From G’s To Gents, ranked #1 sleep walking booty grabber in Sweden, Grammy Award Winning Gynecologist, House Party Expert, has a $3 million deal with Diplo. Shout out to Marc Jacobs. Riff Raff is currently signed with Diplo’s Mad Decent.
Citing names as varied as Theo Parrish, Dorothy Ashby and Stravinsky as major influences on his work, it is not hard to see that Floating Points (Samuel T. Shepherd) has musical knowledge way beyond his (25) years, and having been an accomplished pianist since the age of 16 - he is a true musician. The variety in influences is mirrored in the diversity of his productions - one week it’s broken, the next a string quartet and sometimes just straight up gritty beats. Whatever the genre, the Floating Points ’sound’ shines brightly from within, projecting an individual range and texture of soulful sounds that will remain forever fresh!
As a DJ, mostly his sets sit between boogie & house. & his fascination with both genres sees him hopping continents digging in dusty crates for gems he’s yet to hear!
