Highlights: Signing with Ultra, BANNED 2
Flosstradamus started 2013 off with a bang in the form of BANNED 2, a mixtape they released via torrent. Proper unheard of, but it makes sense considering how well they've done in cultivating a presence via these Internets. They also took their talents to Austin, where they had their own SXSW showcase. That stop was just a part of their massive 2013 gig schedule, which including an impressive debut at this year's Ultra Music Festival. They didn't hit the main stage, but with the way they turned up, we have a feeling 2014 might be (could be?) a main stage year for the HDYBYZ. On the music from, the duo not only remixed Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt," but they also knocked out a remix of Flux Pavilion's "Do Or Die," as well as putting out the massive "Crowd CTRL" with DJ Sliink on Fool's Gold. Even those feats were nothing compared to the real news, that they'd linked with Ultra Music, who released their Yellow Claw collaboration "Pillz," as well as their latest single, "Mosh Pit." Their 2014 is looking bright, and should be even bigger than what they did this year.
