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.
