Flosstradamus is the duo of two Chicago DJ’s/Producers J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) and these guys absolutely kill it. They incorporate elements of Hip-Hop, dubstep, electronic into some serious tunes. Some call it trapstep, but I think it is harder to classify. I’m going to post a few of my personal favorite Flosstradamus tunes for you to enjoy.
Original Don-Major Lazer (Flosstradamus Remix)
This is and absolute banger. Make sure you play it on some nice speakers or headphones for full effect.
This song combines rap lyrics, gentle vocals and sweeping synths for a truly chill track
This song is just absolutely ridiculous. Combine Lil Jon, Kernkraft 400 and Sandstorm and this is one rowdy fucking song.
Finally Total Recall has got hip-hop influences, great sampling and a progressive beat. Make sure you listen to this on good speakers or headphones to really appreciate the depth to this song.

With Lollapalooza a mere 8 days away and so many dope artists to see, I thought I’d give you some of my favorite tracks from artists that will be performing in Grant Park from August 3rd-5th. First here is the official line-up video from the Lollapalooza website. Enjoy.
Now for some of the best tracks from my favorite artists that will be attending Lollapalooza 2012 which seems to have a pretty electro-heavy line up with some big names in dubstep. However, Lollapalooza is so great because of the diversity and variety of shows you can see, here are just a few.

The Brooklyn based electronic duo, Break Science released their second EP entitled Monolith Code on the Pretty Lights Music Label at the begging of 2012. Forrest of Illumination is from that EP. As seasoned producers and touring veterans, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee are definitely doing big things with their music. On Monolith Code, Break Science mixes and matches wide range of electronic elements very similar to Pretty Lights. This track features a wobbly dub type bass line, but is a little more upbeat than your typical dubstep song. There is a good vocal sample and soaring synths. You can get the whole Monolith Code EP free from the Pretty Lights Music label site.

Here is a really sick remix of a classic Beatles song. The drop is the perfect rhythm and tune to match the original chorus. Very dope dupstep song here.

A little dub for you bassheads. This is a great brooding remix with heavy bass and some chilling vocals from La Roux. One of my favorites. You ready to rumble? Check it.

Continuing with the variety today heres some grimy step for your listening pleasure. I haven’t really heard any dubstep tracks that got me excited in awhile, but these two songs turned my attention back to the genre. So Good by Hirshee and Tonye Aganaba has a higher BPM than most dubstep, but a nice bass, solid vocal sample and nice keyboard interludes give a well rounded banger. Touch O Klass by FS is a little heavier, but avoids the mindless chuggin that a dubstep song can develop into. FS varies the beat much like a house dj, giving a banger that doesn’t get old after the 1st drop.
