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!).

Whooo! “Luuk Out Gurl” is a collab between some of Chicago’s finest, Flosstradamus and Kid Sister. Their footwork-inspired jam is not only the first original track from Floss in almost two years, but the lead volley off their new EP, Jubilation, dropping soon on Fool’s Gold and featuring even more hyperactive raps and drum machine b-b-boom. And as you may have heard, Kid Sister has a new EP of her own on deck… PARTY TIME!

New Kid Sister! Download it here and play loud! (There’s also a clean mix for our radio friends.) Miss Info spilled the beans on this club fire first, but we’ll let Nick Catchdubs give you the backstory now…
“Kid Sister is wrapping up a new EP and her second album – they’re both coming out crazy, and while she’s feeling the vibe, she wanted to jump on some fun stuff like we did for the Kiss Kiss Kiss mixtape. I love DJ Nehpets’ juke remix of Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” and knew she would sound crazy on it. But I had no idea she would freak it like THIS!?!? A sweaty summer jam for Chi-town and beyond.”

A few (crazy) weeks ago we took to the highways and byways of North America for the ROAD GOLD tour, in honor of our first ever compilation album. It was a Fool’s Gold soufflé. A b-boy bouillabaisse. A motherfucking techno gumbo of epic proportions!
From city to city, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and Telephoned teamed up in various combinations to rock the party. In LA we were even joined by special guests Just Blaze and Kid Sister! Party vibes were plentiful. But don’t take our word for it: peep the recap vid above, as well as some tour snapshots (and even more vids) after the jump. Read More
