Party Thieves kicks off legendary trap duo Flosstradamus’ new label, Hi Def Youth, with today’s release of “Undrafted” EP. The EP includes four songs consisting of three heavy-hitting bangers and an intro dedicated to his nephew Jon. The prelude, “For Jon,” puts the New York-based producer’s emotions on display with drawn out piano chords that evoke a sense of melancholy. “Death Row” hits hard with an ominous lead, accented by delicate snare patters and a frenetic apex of synth stabs and shuffling vocal chops. “#ZOOTED” brings a slow-churning, trapped-out beat topped with steamy samples, while the EP’s most raucous offering “BADD’” closes things out with percussion-fueled drops and a militant-style drum-kick progression.
Flosstradamus just celebrated their second annual, sold out HDY [Hoodie] Fest at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on 4/20. At the show the duo debuted their new production that consists of a 40ft x 15ft bunker equipped with an LED screen, t-shirt machine gun, satellite tower, and DJ booth. This summer, Flosstradamus will perform at some of the biggest festivals including Bonnaroo, Panorama, Lollapalooza and Mad Decent Block Party, to name a few. They will also continue their popularFlossvegas residency in Las Vegas at Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club.
