Based on a story of Joseph found in the Bible's Book of Genesis, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical theater production and the first Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration to be staged for a public audience in 1968. The family-friendly, sung-through show has become a world-wide hit, having been performed on all levels of theater from schools to community theaters since its debut in the West End in 1973 and on Broadway in 1982. The show follows the Biblical story of Joseph, a prophet whose brightly colored coat was given to him to show his father's favor. Driven by jealously, his brothers sell him as a slave and falsely proclaim his death. Though he endures several hardships, Joseph eventually makes his way back home with the help of a spirit he sees in his dreams.
Flosstradamus is a Chicago-based electronic duo that was formed in 2005 and specializes in making dance-friendly tracks with intensive synth arrangements and meaty bass beats. The group has received a large amount of attention within the electronic music scene and has managed to build a reputation for itself as a must-see live act for connoisseurs of electronic music. Even though the duo's music is extremely easy to dance to and, therefore, subject to a good deal of criticsm from electronic music snobs, Flosstradamus manages to interject a lot of adept production quirks and skillful sample splices.
