We hold Mad Decent, Diplo’s own label, to be one of the most innovative and influential labels in today’s time. Since its conception they have single handedly contributed in the popularization of Brazilian baile funk, Angolan kuduro, Moombahton and of course Trap.
Today Flosstradamus, the stage name of Chicago-based DJs J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci), surprised us with what we thought would be an unassuming remix of Lana Del Rey. We could not have been more misguided. Leave it to the 30 second mark for Flosstradamus to flip things around into an addictive and refreshing trap beat that although independent, it organically combines with Mrs Del Ray soothing vocals to produce one coherent track.
