FLOSSTRADAMUS

Flosstradamus spent the last 8 years breaking new sounds around the globe and becoming club kings in the process. But how do they keep doing it? J2K and Autobot’s knack for flipping your favorite tracks in unexpected new ways (from their earliest DJ blends to high-energy hybrids like the duo’s hit remix of Major Lazer’s “Original Don”) certainly helps. So does having a catalog of original bangers on Fool’s Gold, Green Label Sound and Mad Decent/Jeffree’s. Yet the real reason Floss has been able to reinvent party rocking for close to a decade is because these Chicago boys bring an irresistible sense of fun to every single set, whether it’s a sweat-soaked nightclub or in front of thousands at Lollapalooza. Armed with a gang of new tunes straight from the studio and a brand new, extra-hype stage show, Flosstradamus is coming back to a town near you… get ready to juke!

A-TRAK

Very few DJs can jump from club sets to high-profile festival performances, to Kanye West’s larger-than-life stadium shows with ease. In today’s DJ culture, A-Trak holds a truly unique place. He and partner Nick Catchdubs founded America’s most trendsetting new label, Fool’s Gold, launching the careers of artists such as Kid Sister and Kid Cudi. Fool’s Gold’s mission to merge all aspects of club music was already outlined in Trizzy’s original mixtape manifesto, Dirty South Dance, which set the tone for his own production. He is now one of the most sought-after remixers in electronic music, and his remixes for the likes of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Boys Noize have become undeniable mainstays in DJ sets the world over. 2009 saw the release of two critically acclaimed DJ mixes, Infinity +1 and Fabriclive 45, as well as the birth of Duck Sauce, his collaboration with Armand Van Helden. The duo’s radio smash “aNYway” cemented itself as the dance anthem of the year, A-Trak’s first true chart-topper with two videos in international rotation and across-the-board support from Pete Tong to Busy P, David Guetta to 2manydjs. Duck Sauce’s 2010 follow up “Barbra Streisand” was even bigger, a whistling pop sensation that accumulated over 10 million YouTube views of its star-studded video while hitting platinum heights around the globe. They even covered it on X-Factor!

NICK CATCHDUBS

Nick Catchdubs has a party pedigree that’s truly unmatched. For nearly a decade, his wildly diverse DJ sets have been rocking clubs around the globe and launching thousands of hands into the air at festivals from Lollapalooza and Camp Bisco to Electric Daisy Carnival and HARDFest. Catchdubs-helmed mixtapes like Wale’s acclaimed 100 Miles & Running and the alt-rock Radio Friendly Unit Shifter series for Mishka have become iPod staples praised by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and the Chicago Reader, who call him “tastemaking royalty who can break an act singlehandedly.” And as co-founder of the influential label Fool’s Gold, Nick has introduced artists like Danny Brown, Kid Cudi and Duck Sauce to the world and been hailed as an “indie innovator” in the process by Billboard and the New York Times.

On his forthcoming album Smoke Machine, Nick brings his own production to the forefront with original songs fueled by that same versatile and inspired DJ spirit. Yet Nick’s true home isn’t inside the studio, but behind two turntables, working the crowd into a frenzy. As XXL Magazine put it, “when it comes to DJing, Nick Catchdubs is a regular Mr Do-It-All.” So whether it’s at a strobed-out stadium rave, champagne-fueled fashion show, or sweltering basement rap party, don’t sleep when this Brooklyn boy comes to take you for a spin.
