About the Showcase:
Mad Decent Showcase:  Flosstradamus with Gent & Jawns and Astronomar
Saturday, September 28th at the Showbox Sodo
All Ages

Flosstradamus:  Chicago-based DJs J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) comprise Flosstradamus, who broke out  with their 2012 remix of Major Lazer’s “Original Don”.  Forgoing the usual press and promotion routes, Flosstradamus connects with their fans and shares music via multiple online methods, all of which can be accessed at  

Adding unique twists to tracks and remixes in unexpected ways is the hallmark of the Flosstradamus sound, between remixing Sigur Ros to Matt & Kim, you never know what you’re going to get next.  Flosstradamus’ live performance energy is notorious, with the duo being temporarily banned from playing in Chicago due to their live sets inducing riots!  More information about Flosstradamus is available on the dBx Flosstradamus artist page.  Check out the latest remix from Flosstradamus of Major Lazer’s Bubble Butt here:

Gent & Jawns:   Billy the Gent and Long Jawns are banded together as Gent & Jawns and have worked on remixes for Datsik, Bare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with Nadastrom, Torro Torro and JWLS.  In early 2012 they worked with mega-producer Diplo on his Express Yourself EP, then they released “Holler,” their first official EP on Mad Decent’s Jeffrees label. The duo ended 2012 with “Turnup”, a party-inducing track that was often called one of the top trap songs of 2012.

Astronomar:   Former Seattleite Astronomar has been stirring up and building alliances in the dance music community since he arrived in Seattle in 2008. Newly relocated to Los Angeles in 2013, he’s seen by far his busiest year on the road, and in the studio, infiltrating the playlists of most every A-List DJ with ears. Thereʼs an intangible uniqueness to everything he does; a strong hip-hop influence permeates his productions, based on his earlier roots in hip hop & turntablism. The biggest names, from Diplo, to Skrillex, to A-Trak have supported his tracks by featuring them on their own mixes & radio shows, and playing them out nightly, around the world.
