Runnin thru TX with our woes! The 2015 edition of our annual FG Austin SXSW showcase brought a gang of new faces to the forefront along with the tried and true party vibes we’re known for.

Watch the recap and don’t miss out when the squad hits a town near you.

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. Whether solo or collabing with like-minded DJs in his Athletixx crew, Hoodboi’s energetic, emotional tunes feel equally at home in a Jersey basement or a Zelda bonus level. It’s an all-in approach to electronic music that will warm your emoji heart.
Palm Reader is Hoodboi’s debut EP of original music, a bold leap forward from the R&B bootlegs and party tracks he cut his teeth on. The four tracks are physical and lush; raw club OOMPH sprayed with a candy gloss. From soaring, new-age opener “Dusk” to the hypercolor title track featuring Lido, Hoodboi is making 1080p dance records like none other. Get Palm Reader on iTunes now!
Hoodboi’s amazing debut EP Palm Reader drops 3/24 on FG, but he’s sharing the technicolor title track featuring Lido right now! Complex premiered the tune along with a Q&A, and you can get it immediately when you pre-order Palm Reader on iTunes. Check Hoodboi playing with Athletixx at our SXSW showcase in Austin 3/20!
Hoodboi recently hit the BBC airwaves for an Athletixx takeover of Diplo & Friends, and used his set to premier tracks from the upcoming Palm Reader EP on Fool’s Gold and a gang of other crazy new tracks.

Desus & Mero held us down on the host tip with their bodega stand up (complete with assists from Rosenberg, Miss Info, Ebro and the Hot 97 crew). It was truly one for the books…
