Hoodboi is leading the pack of visionary young LA producers. His debut Fool’s Gold EP Palm Reader was an inspired, late-night take on international club sounds, bringing underground vibes to the masses while injecting his own unique brand of matrix-friendly dance appeal in the process. Now, the Athletixx producer gets taken for a spin himself on Palm Reader Remixes, featuring reworked EP tracks from his club-smashing peers. Vindata (Owsla) turn “By Ur Side” into a half-time masterclass in pitched vocals and triumphant laser riffs, while Alizzz (Mad Decent) drags “Shallow” into warehouse trap territory. The Lido-featuring title track gets three uniquely awesome versions: SIROJ funks out “Palm Reader” into a slow electronic strut, Fool’s Gold OG Treasure Fingers flips it into a modern garage house anthem, and Jesse Slayter cranks up the festival-ready #feels. It’s a wide-ranging batch of remixes that do justice to Hoodboi’s own high-res originals. We’ve gazed into the crystal ball… the future is bright!

Label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs have once again curated North America’s most culturally resonant festival. Who else brings together street rap royalty Meek Mill (currently riding high with the #1 album in the country), UK grime icon Skepta and underground superstars Flatbush Zombies?

Top it off with fresh label signings Rome Fortune, ManMan Savage, Bosco, Leaf, Hoodboi, Falcons and Shash’U and you’ve got an eclectic and electrifying lineup, in true Fool’s Gold style.
“DAY OFF is our culture. It’s where the full scope of Fool’s Gold comes together, it’s everything we represent. It doesn’t belong to one scene or another: DAY OFF is generational. We’ve watched it grow, step by step, with pride. I can’t wait to pull some more surprises this year!” – A-Trak

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!
