FONTANA, CA – Chicago duo Flosstradamus, comprised of J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci), are the pioneering conductors of trap and EDM. This can be confirmed by any fan of EDM and Hip Hop, as well as the mere fact they recently headlined two major festivals: Hard Summer Music Festival in Los Angeles and Lollapalooza in Chicago.
HipHopDX recently caught up with trap duo right before their closing set at the main stage the Hard on Saturday, July 30 to discuss their epic set at Lollapalooza, bridging the gap between EDM and Hip Hop, wanting to collab with Dej Loaf, and Shaq being a dope DJ.
Other performers included Ice Cube, Travis Scott, Baauer, Belly, Dizzee Rascal, Wax Motif, and Destructo, just to name a few.
Held at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA this year, the festival conditions were rough, to say the least. Aside from the struggle of the 100-degree heat to the tremendous lack of organization from the venue, we found Flosstradamus to be two of the most chill, down-to-earth beings, especially taking into account they have maneuvered through the underground and suddenly appeared on top. Both are truly in it for the love of the music.
HipHopDX: How was Lollapalooza?
Flosstradamus: It was crazy good. It was our 10-year anniversary of us doing Floss. It was also the 25th anniversary of Lolla and we got to headline. We brought out Dwyane Wade, Chance the Rapper, Michelle Williams, Post Malone. It was just crazy.
