Over the past couple of years the boys in Flosstradamus have been moving away from the party-hard rap/bloghouse/all-neon-everything sound that they made their name with. Lately they’ve been digging into the cooler tones and more economical structures of old Chicago house, as well as some 90s house-pop—the kind of stuff that some of us probably still have lurking around in a box of cassingles. RCRD LBL just posted their remix of “I Am Trying,” by local house-inflected electro-pop duo Greenskeepers. It’s a long way from Lil Jon/Zombie Nation mashups. That piano patch is straight-up on some Cathy Dennis shit.
