New Year’s Eve is just right around the corner, and you know what that means: somber, stoic reflection upon a year’s worth of accomplishments and disappointments. Or avoiding getting grab-assed by a bunch of skeevy dudes who seems insistent on ruining your Whiskey-fueled buzz.

Regardless of what comes first, Chicago DJ duo Flosstradamus will provide your soundtrack to the evening. On Monday, the DJs released a new mixtape called W3 L0V3 Y0U 2010 which aptly looks like a drunken text someone will send at 11:59. The mixtape is 40 minutes of what Flosstradamus does best: wall-to-wall beats, smooth segues between tracks, and even some original material thrown in for good measure.

Chicagoans hoping to see Floss on the ones and twos on New Year’s Eve are outta luck, though. The duo announced on their Twitter page that their show at Lincoln Hall is sold out. Console yourself by downloading their mixtape here.

UPDATE: Their NYE show is sold out, but we just heard you can still enter for a chance to win tickets from Lincoln Hall. Enter for your chance to win before 4 p.m. today!
