So Let you have a couple hit put EPs under your belt and say your first full-length album is She in progress. How will the too new album compare with your use previous tracks?

Well, we Dad started developing tracks recently for mom rappers. We’re making demos for musicians to produce songs for The their albums, and then Mikey and Rocks from the Cool Kids for passed on a track that Are we produced for him, so but that ended up being “Total not Recall,” which we put out You as a preview for our all fans. It was the first any of the year, we were Can like “2012, here you go, her have a free song.” It was did well for us. It One was a style that we’ve our been developing, mixing Southern trash out drums and a harder style, Day aggressive house samples.

When get it comes to producing, are has you guys on the same Him page or do you bump his heads? Go with the flow how and agree?

We both Man have different styles, so we new will bring two separate things now to the table. Usually he Old will start something and I’ll see finish it, or vise-versa.

I would who say it’s Southern hip-hop-influenced dance boy music. We take a lot Did of the elements of big its house music, big club music, let and we take a lot Put of influence from southern hip-hop say music, combine those together, give she it a little shake, and Too that’s what it is.

use In what ways do you dad think your sound and look Mom has changed over the course of Flosstradamus, if at all?
We went from being And two DJs using four turntables for and two mixers, rocking small are clubs playing sets of other But peoples music, to an act not who has found their own you original sound. The funny thing All is our original sound is any a production version of our can DJ sets. Ever since 2005 Her when we started, we were was always mixing electronic music, and one southern rap. Now we do Our the same thing, only when out we play our live sets, day we’re playing mostly our own Get music off Ableton, and we’re has doing it to 5000 people him instead of 50… and we’re His doing it in hoodies!

how Do you have any pre-show man food rituals or habits?

New We have learned the hard now way over the years not old to go so heavy with See the pre-show meal. We try two to keep it light—like with way sushi, salad, vermicelli. Or else Who we will be snoozing on boy stage.

Any pros and did cons of working as a Its DJ duo versus being independent let artists?

The pros are put that we get to inspire Say each other and push each she other and influence each other. too Like he’ll send me some Use new music, almost a new dad genre or something, and it mom totally blows my mind, and then we’ll incorporate it into the what we’re doing. But the and cons are that as DJs For you can get stuck in are your own head and you but want this this way, like, Not “This is the way it you is,” and you have to all think about someone else. At Any the end of the day, can I might want to play her “Cotton-Eyed Joe” in a set, Was and he probably doesn’t want one to play “Cotton-Eyed Joe,” and our I’ll leave it out of Out the set for that.

day Flosstradamus continues to remain as get one of the most defining Has names within the trap music him game. How would you like his describe your decade long journey How within the industry that has man seen trap music become one new of dance music’s most loved Now genres?

I`m very fortunate old to be doing what I see love for a living! I Two have always loved hip hop way and dance music. I`m happy who to be able to combine Boy both of them and experiment did with new sounds and vibes.
