At the SXSW TOO TURNT UP showcase, fans lined up around to the corner in hopes to make it into the small venue where Flosstradamus would take the stage at 1 AM.
The showcase started with multiple DJ sets. The crowd danced and jammed along to remixes of modern day hip hop singles. After the first two hours of a constant dance party, Trinidad James was welcomed to the stage. For “Female$ Welcome” he got multiple girls from the crowd to join him on stage and dance. He took crowd photos with them and got everyone pumped. When the beat to his biggest single “All Gold Everything” started up, the crowd jumped like crazy; the upper balcony was even shaking! He stepped on to a speaker and instructed to crowd to wave along. The girls on stage from the previous song were still going at it and shaking it for the audience. Some fans even invited themselves on stage.
When Trinidad was over, some DJs took the stage again while the crowd waited anxiously to get crazy for Flosstradamus. As the crew prepared their mixing tables and set up the stage, everyone knew it was almost time. When the lights were suddenly cut and a single light appeared on the mixing table, a deep voice announced, “Flosstradamus” and was followed by an intro beat. The two members of Flosstradamus walked out on stage and the audience screamed.
Throughout their set they played remixes of hit songs including “Boy oh Boy” by Diplo, “FDB” by Young Dro, “Harlem Shake” by Baauer and more. When they played their remix of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love,” they invited female crowd members on stage and dedicated the song to all the women in the house. The chosen few and all the women in the crowd were singing along and grooving to the beat.
Next up was the Ying Yang Twins’ “Get Low.” Flosstradamus instructed the crowd to all get really low and, when the beat dropped, to jump as high as they could. On the count of three, the entire audience jumped up and lit the place up. Strobe lights lit up the crowd and a mosh pit started, due to the craze. The duo played their song “Mosh Pit” and started a wall of death. They wanted it to be “the biggest moshpit the Mohawk had ever seen,” and well, it just may have been. People were crowd surfing and moshing as if their lives depended on it. One of the members told the crowd to pick up anything they could find on the ground (mostly trash) and, when the beat dropped again, to throw it in the air. Although it was gross, the fans didn’t seem to care; they just kept the party going. Flosstradamus definitely left an impact on every single fan there and put on a more than memorable show at the Mohawk.
