Veterans of the music scene, Josh Young and Curt Cameruci announced last month that FOMO would be their final ever run of shows as a duo, ending a decade together, with Young leaving to focus on his own solo project full-time.
And so after they wrapped up FOMO with an incredibly visceral set full of filthy dubstep, hard-hitting trap and their greatest hits, Young took a moment to address the crowd and say an emotional farewell. “11 years ago me and this dude [Cameruci] started this group together and we’ve had some fucking crazy experiences all over the world,” said Young, whose wife is from Australia.
“Some of the best ones being here in Sydney,” he continued, before rattling off some of the venues they’ve played over the years. “All the way from Chinese Laundry, to Metro Theatre, to Enmore, and finishing off her at FOMO with you motherfuckers.
“I have to say man, this has been my life since I was 21 years old… and it’s fucking awesome to have gone through this with you. I’m an old-ass man now. So whether you’re a new fan, or a day one fan, I appreciate you and thank you.”
Young has also posted to Instagram with a photo from last night, thanking fans again and promising new music in 2017.
11 years ago i founded a group called Flosstradamus and last night i played my last show with that group. it's been a whirlwind journey with some of the highest highs and lowest lows, and i wouldn't trade it for the world. thanks to all the fans old and new for fucking with my sound and giving a kid from Chicago the chance to make dope shit, see the world, meet amazing people, meet my wife (on tour in Melbourne), eat awesome food, and experience some of the craziest nights of all time. i've been touring since i was 21, just a lil baby josh, hadn't even left my home town. now i sit here at 32 proud of how this music/tour life shaped me into the man i am today. 2017 is going to be a big year of writing and reflection, and i cannot wait to get some 🔥 NEW MUSIC out to y'all!!! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR EVERYTHING! ✌🏽 + 🖤 -J
Curt Cameruci plans to continue Flosstradamus on his own, and has already announced a series of nightclub DJ sets in Las Vegas for the next few months.
