Flosstradamus’ brand-new single, “How You Gon’ Do That” featuring sultry-voiced Cara Salimando, has been catching fans and followers off guard. Super smooth and summery, the track finds Curt Cameruci digging into some fresh flavors as he moves forward with Flosstradamus as a solo act.

“I make a lot of what I’d call festival songs, but every now and then there’s been something like this, and I’m going to be steering this way more,” he says. “It’s time to switch it up and see what happens. I definitely wanted to make a tune for summer, just good vibes, but there will definitely still be new stuff coming that’s more turnt, mosh-pit intense.”

Since Cameruci and Josh Young parted ways last year, Cameruci, who lives in Brooklyn, has continued to tour and produce new music. As Flosstradamus he’s still playing his residency at Wynn. “It’s definitely one of my favorite spots in Vegas. Even if I didn’t have a residency I would stay there every time.”

Flosstradamus returned to EDC this year after skipping last year’s festival. But he’s planning to slow down a bit with those big gigs in order to wrap up lots more new music. “Right now the idea is to get a bunch of singles done and if it turns into a full album, that’s cool, too,” Cameruci says. “The great thing right now is, it’s okay to put out singles and let them take their own trajectory individually. And it’s great since my sound is going all over the place. At the end of the day, it’s still trap music, just a little softer. I’m happy to branch out a little bit but I’ll still come back to the roots of the tree.” Nightswim with Flosstradamus at Encore Beach Club, June 30.
