Flosstradamus’ Australian tour kicks off

Flosstradamus01

 

More Australian touring is on the way, and it begins with a great new start with this duo.  This Friday, Flosstradamus kick off their first Australian tour in years. When they first headed out our way in 2008, the Chicago-bred pair were sharing the V Festival bill with titans like The Smashing Pumpkins, Duran Duran and Queens of the Stone Age. Back then, thanks to inthemix, they have noted “they’ve been known for throwing everything into the mix; from hip hop to indie to techno to electro.” Now, there’s a much easier genre tag for what duo Josh Young and Curt Cameruci make: trap. Flosstradamus have risen up as one of the biggest names in the new it-genre, so this time, the tour’s all about them.

Kicking off at Can’t Say in Melbourne on Friday, from there it’s onto Perth, Byron Bay, Adelaide and Brisbane, before winding up with a big one at Chinese Laundry in Sydney. The tour comes off the back of their X EP, which the pair released for free download last year. But since then, they’ve been hard at work with guys from both the Fool’s Gold and Mad Decent camps: hooking up with A-Trak to remix his track Piss Test, putting their spin on Major Lazer’s Original Don and teaming up with Diploto rework he and Usher’s superhit Climax. Tickets to all shows are available through the venue, or through Moshtix for the Brisbane and Byron dates.

DJCentral is proud to announce our newest member to the team! Meet Swee, she recently joined the team as the newest presenter and host for DJCentral. Also a DJ under the stage name DJ Miss Tokio, she appears all around Sydney’s events. Check out her biography below.

Music has always been a passion for Swee Ling Khor, also known as DJ Miss Tokio. Upon moving to Sydney, she took up a DJ course to pursue her music career. After three short months when she was introduced to the art of beat mixing, she wasted no time and started to spread her love for music.

She has performed at variety of recognised bars and lounges, including the Crows Nest Hotel, Peppermint Lounge, Blue Horizon (Shangri-La Hotel), Social Sundays @ The Roxy, Cruise Bar, VBar, Golden Palace Hotel (Coogee Beach) and more. For 3 years running Miss Tokio has played at the notoriously infamous rave in Sydney, Transmission. Making appearances at Gas Nightclub, Lost at Space Club, AKA Night Club, Candy Shop in Cabramatta, Candy’s Apartment, Soho Bar, Verandah Bar, Watershed, Cohi Bar, Kobe Jones.

‘To me, knowing the technical part of mixing is an important starting point, but having a passion for the music you play is far more important. The energy and enthusiasm I have when I play my sets gets such a positive response from the people and they just can’t help but shake along. I believed that positive energy attracts positive response.’

 

DJ Miss Tokio’s first music video of her track ‘I Do What I Do’ will be out shortly and more collaborations are on the way.

 

DJ Miss Tokio is exciting to be working with DJ Central, mixing her performance experience with presenting to create an explosive mix.
