Watch Flosstradamus Connect with Fans in Short Film, ‘IRL’: New Tour Dates Announced

By Scott T. Sterling

The cult surrounding EDM “maximal trap” heroes Flosstradamus continues to grow, with the Chicago-based duo currently among the most beloved acts in the scene.

The band returns some of that fan love with the release of IRL, a new black and white short film based around their 2013 tour. The video utilizes images captured along the tour in cities including Chicago, Denver and San Francisco, juxtaposing backstage interviews with concert shots and fan interactions along the way.

“Back in 2013, just before we embarked on our IRL tour, we decided to capture the passion and dedication of our die-hard fans, the HDYNATION (Hoodie Nation),” explained band member Josh Young (AKA J2K) in a press release. “The Flosstradamus IRL short-form documentary is us recognizing the cult-like following of the people who support us night after night.  They deserve a spotlight just as much as we do; it’s a reciprocal relationship.  When we meet fans, they always show us so much heart and spirit; they are the force that has built a community around our music and shows.  Some of the fans we met on the road had come to see us five, six and even seven times in under a year.  That level of commitment is rare and really special to us; we felt it needed to be highlighted.”
