Flosstradamus is the stage name of American DJ and musician Curt Cameruci.[1] From 2007 until 2016, Flosstradamus consisted of Cameruci and Josh Young from Chicago. The duo announced they would both be pursuing solo careers, with Cameruci to continue using Flosstradamus as a stage name.[2] Cameruci is also known as Autobot and Young is also known as J2K and YehMe2.[3] Flosstradamus is also known for the earliest trap songs with Original Don.

Flosstradamus, as a duo, have worked alongside artists including Kid Sister (Young's sister), Diplo, Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J, The Cool Kids, and A-Trak.[4] They played at many college campuses such as Wellesley College, Drexel University (alongside Waka Flocka Flame), Northwestern University, Carnegie Mellon University (playing alongside RJD2), Middlebury College, Columbia University, and UC Riverside. They have additionally appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and the Nick Jr. program Yo Gabba Gabba!.[1][5]

Career[edit]

In April 2006, Flosstradamus, as a duo, were included in URB's annual "Next 100".[6] In addition, during the summer of 2007 they embarked on an international tour with Chromeo, dubbed the "Fancy Footwork Tour". Autobot is also active in the Serato Scratch Live community making his Flossy FX sampler available online to the masses via their MySpace page. In 2014, at SXSW Flosstradamus set up a guerrilla WiFi network titled PLURNTNET to distribute a new track titled "Hdygrlz Anthm". Using social media the duo pointed fans to the PLURTNET via geotagged posts at various locations around Austin. Users could sign on and download or stream the exclusive track.

On July 29, 2016, they released their single 'Came Up' with FKi 1st, graves and featuring Post Malone and Key!.[7] In December 2016, Young announced Flosstradamus were splitting and he will pursue a solo career.[2] Young's solo project soon adopted the name YehMe2.[3] Cameruci will continue with the name Flosstradamus as a solo act.[8][9] In March 2017 he released the single "Back Again", which featured Waka Flocka Flame and Mayhem through Ultra Music.[10] They have also partnered with Dillon Francis to form the touring and live performance group Dillstradamus.[11]
