Flamingosis took his name from a free-style Frisbee move his father invented. That signature move involves a reverse spinning catch while standing on one leg like a flamingo, which aptly mirrors the New Jersey-based DJ and producer’s own whimsical beats. Wandering from old school hip-hop to classic jazz to groovy funk, Flamingosis employs a sample-based technique to start a new conversation in electronic dance music. Instead of following popular EDM trends like future bass and trap, Flamingosis finds inspiration in music’s greatest pocket grooves, or feel-good beats that make you bob your head up and down.
