"…the great appeal of Major Lazer is watching these dancehall concoctions transform, as elements of dub and hip-hop and reggae are also smashed into one freaky, juiced up mutant." - PITCHFORK Since its inception in 2009, the one-armed cartoon Jamaican renegade know as Major Lazer (fronted by Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Diplo) has become a cultural zeitgeist. From being sampled by Beyonce for her single "Run The World (Girls)", to selling out shows and playing festivals across the world or leading the way in the current dancehall revival movement and producing the upcoming Snoop Dogg album, Major Lazer's world takeover since the release of GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE...LAZERS DO is undeniable. The highly anticipated second full length instalment of the Major Lazersaga, FREE THE UNIVERSE, is set to be released November 6th 2012 on Mad Decent / Downtown.
Flosstradamus spent the last 8 years breaking new sounds around the globe and becoming club kings in the process. But how do they keep doing it? J2K and Autobot’s knack for flipping your favorite tracks in unexpected new ways (from their earliest DJ blends to high-energy hybrids like the duo’s hit remix of Major Lazer’s “Original Don”) certainly helps. So does having a catalog of original bangers on Fool’s Gold, Green Label Sound and Mad Decent/Jeffree’s.
Yet the real reason Floss has been able to reinvent party rocking for close to a decade is because these Chicago boys bring an irresistible sense of fun to every single set, whether it’s a sweat-soaked nightclub or in front of thousands at Lollapalooza. Armed with a gang of new tunes straight from the studio and a brand new, extra-hype stage show, Flosstradamus is coming back to a town near you… get ready to juke!
