The Chicago-based DJ collaboration Flosstradamus is taking a more experiential approach to music, allowing you to have your music and smoke it too.
Their newest mixtape, B⚠NNED 3D, is a “hybrid” mixtape that combines a 8GB hard drive with a portable vaporizer. The device allows users to store memory on the hard drive to combine music and listening with the intake of various “aromatherapy herbs” or marijuana oils – recreationally legal in Colorado, only medicinally in other approved states.
Flosstradamus has emerged as a Trap and Bass pioneer, and fans and critics alike have been praising their latest mixtape. Whether this is due to the new functionality or music itself is up for debate. ThisSongisSick.com did have the following to say:
B⚠NNED 3D goes in swinging straight haymakers towards your eardrums as tracks from LOUDPVCK, RL Grime B2B Baauer, Mr Carmack, and Riff Raff are mixed in with unreleased Flosstradamus collaborations with Waka Flocka and DJ Snake respectively.
The portable vaporizer is an interesting – and well-timed – take on marketing and promotions in the music industry, cleverly combining music and mood-setting drugs for a unique user experience. You can listen to B⚠NNED 3D here.
