Flosstradamus announce they’re parting ways
Hitmaker Josh Young has announced he’s leaving Flosstradamus to pursue a solo project.
In a video posted to his Instagram this morning, Young broke the news that he’s leaving the trap duo to focus full time on his new project Me2, which launched in July with a 33-track mixtape. “I came to this decision at the end of summer, but due to circumstances outside of my control I wasn’t able to make this announcement until after the Flosstradamus tour ended,” he told fans.
“I have so much love and respect for Curt and the whole Flosstradamus crew, everything they’ve done for our career, and most of all HDYNATION. Thank you guys for all the unforgettable amazing experiences we’ve shared together.”
Both members of Flosstradamus will still play Australia’s FOMO Festival next month, which kicks off on January 6 in Adelaide before hitting Brisbane and Sydney.
Josh Young and Curt Cameruci started Flosstradamus over ten years ago in Chicago, but it wasn’t until their remix of Major Lazer’s Original Don in 2012 that they became stars, eventually amassing a cult following and becoming one of the biggest acts in dance music.
