But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever. Listen to Night Shift now!

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!
