Los Angeles is home to some of the most innovative young club producers in the nation, and Hoodboi may be the most exciting of the bunch.
It’s easy to peg this internet hero as “mysterious,” though we prefer to say that he simply lets the music do the talking. With tracks as exuberantly melodic as they are straight-up banging, Hoodboi’s tunes feel equally at home in a Jersey basement or a Pokemon bonus level. It’s an all-in approach to dance music that’s won him early praise from like-minded artists (Diplo, Ryan Hemsworth, Cashmere Cat) and fueled his rapid ascent from Soundcloud to Coachella in a matter of months.
Fresh from a sold-out Asian tour with A-Trak and a fan-favorite remix of Chromeo’s hit “Jealous,” Hoodboi officially joins the Fool’s Gold family with a new EP due later this year. Meanwhile, get a taste of his signature sound right now with “Bugaboo,” twisting Destiny’s Child’s TRL gem into three minutes and twelve seconds of pristine, futuristic club music that will warm your emoji heart. Check out DJ Hooboi live in July, dates below.

Kid Gloves is the 1-2 punch of producers Anu Pillai and Roy Kerr. These UK studio wizards have amassed one of the coolest discographies on the planet, whether they’re behind the boards for the likes of Lana Del Rey and London Grammar, or flying solo as Freeform Five and The Freelance Hellraiser. Yet when they combine forces as Kid Gloves, these two studio masters manage to knock out their freakiest dance tracks yet.
“Third Round” (Premiered on Entertainment Weekly along with a Q&A) is the most muscular take on the Kid Gloves sound to date, a six-and-a-half minute collage of electrocuted disco cuts and distorted synthesizer glory. The guys get even funkier on “Stay The Same,” changing tempos while charging into soulful house and garage territory, prepping ears for revelatory EP closer “Wish I Never,” a timeless R&B summer jam where Kid Gloves channel their inner Jacksons over slowed-down rave breaks and the smoky pipes of London diva Tawiah. Leave your genre tags in the locker room and step in the ring.
Pre-Order Kid Gloves Third Round on iTunes now. Out June 24.

When DJ superhero A-Trak joins forces with vanguard production duo Milo & Otis, lock up your stereo equipment… NO BASS IS SAFE. Their irresistibly anthemic collaboration “Out The Speakers” is the first official team-up from these two festival forces (following M&O’s beloved remix with Skrillex and Kill The Noise of Trizzy’s Duck Sauce single “NRG”). They slow down the BPMs to make a speaker-bursting, apartment-evicting monster constructed from screwed rap vocals from ATL’s Rich Kidz, twerked out drums, and what is perhaps mankind’s first recorded “burp drop.” If that’s not enough, festival freaks Caked Up provide a rave-ready uptempo remix, while LA duo Vindata sneak in R&B finger snaps and drum programming worthy of the So So Def Bass All-Stars. Tweeters beware!
Get Out the Speakers now on iTunes, and don’t forget to grab new A-Trak tour merch now in the FG store and catch A-Trak this month on the Gold Gone Wild tour!
