Flosstradamus “Jubilation” EP feat. Kid Sister & Danny Brown Out 11/29

Posted on Nov 21st, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Jubilation is the name of a long gone nightclub in the south suburbs outside Chicago that gave teenage partygoers their first taste of the ’90s ghetto house tracks that would soon morph into juke and footwork. So its more than appropriate that Flosstradamus take that title for their brand new EP, where the DJ duo of J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) use the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass sonics of juke as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds of their very own.

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 is a true showcase for Flosstradamus’ club-honed studio skills and willingness to experiment.

Check out their Jubilation-themed DJ mix below, filled with footworking favorites new and old, and be sure to grab Jubilation next Tuesday, 11/29 (same day that Kid Sis’ Kiss & Tell EP hits the internet streets. Yesss!).

This Wednesday (11/23), Floss will be celebrating the EP release with a pre-Thanksgiving throwdown at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, assisted by Supreme Cuts and Calez. Be there! Read More
