17 Questions With Flosstradamus
Chicago-based OG trap lords Flosstradamus have dropped their massive Soundclash EP and it’s arguably some of their best work yet. With guest appearances from the likes of TroyBoi, GTA, Lil John and NYMZ of Los Angeles producer group Milo & Otis, the release is stacked with six tracks, and full of trippy vocals, echoing drums and some seriously addictive baselines.
To celebrate the release, we scored some studio time with J2K and Autobot to find out what it’s really like on tour with the Ultra Music powerhouse.
Go-to fast food on tour: Taco Bell. Or if we’re in Australia then Hungry Jack’s.
Biggest bender you’ve ever been on: On tour in Canada.
What’s your favourite hangover food: There’s this place in Canada that has the world’s best hangover food – beef tongue.
Go-to outfit for your gigs: Our HDYNATION merch.
Favourite phone game: Tetris!
Drink of choice: Ciroc with water and a dash of something.
Most famous person in your phonebook: Waka Flocka Flame.
What do you text about: He only ever messages us when he changes his number. Being a rapper, I’m sure you can imagine how many time he has to change it [laughs]!
What’s the best set you’ve seen lately: We were just watching Kaytranada, he’s so awesome. He just doesn’t care. He has the best swag about him. Him and Mr. Carmack are our two favourite people.
Favourite album: Outkast!
Most important item to pack before you go on tour: Pants.
The worst date you’ve been on: It was actually an accidental date. I’d been out the night before with a friend who had a girl with him. Afterwards, I got some texts from my buddy asking to catch up the next day for tacos. When I arrived at the house, the girl from the night before came out and I was like ‘oh what is she doing here?’. She got in the car and was like ‘cool lets go get Tacos!’. I thought it had been my friend messaging me but it was the girl all along. Creepy!
Most days you’ve gone without a shower: When I was a kid, I wanted to piss off my parents, so I grew dreadlocks and didn’t shower for 90 days. It got to the point where my dad called me and said ‘don’t come home unless you’ve showered.’
Most memorable Aussie festival experience: Big Day Out two years ago. It was Australia Day so we wore tradie outfits on stage.
Favourite road trip game: Sleeping with our eyes open.
An Australian artist you’ve got your eye on: Alison Wonderland. We met her a while back and didn’t really know she had her own music or anything. But she’s super cool!
If you had to pick a different artist name: Tha Duo. Because everyone always thinks we’re one dude.
