Hoodboi Joins Fool’s Gold
Posted on Jun 20th, 2014 in Announcements > Streams by Mr. Goldbar
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.
