“Long Distance” is the latest gem from rising LA producer Hoodboi, who is on a hot streak of singles leading up to his Breathing Room EP on Fool’s Gold (out 5/22). Following the futuristic r&b collaborations “Glide” feat. Tkay Maidza and “Tip Of My Tongue” with TZAR (praised by NYLON as “a glossy foot-tapper that packs a seductive punch”), “Long Distance” is a duet with the voice inside the machine: chopped up, stuttering samples and emotive voicemails tell a heartfelt tale over house-inspired piano chords and Hoodboi’s uniquely digital groove.

Los-Angeles producer and electro-R&B virtuoso Hoodboi, personally known as Roger Schami, releases “Tip Of My Tongue” with TZAR today on Fool’s Gold Records. Hoodboi flexes his songwriting muscles on the new single, ditching the high-energy safety net so many electronic producers rely upon and replacing it with a confident, funky minimalism. Meanwhile, Russian songstress TZAR provides the perfect vocal counterpoint for their infectious, genre-less collaboration. Listen up!
Hoodboi’s summer jam “Closer” featuring ASTR is the gift that keeps on giving! The original track’s emotional choruses and technicolor sound palette get beautifully bent on three prismatic new remixes. Soundcloud sensation Kid Froopy delivers ADD funk on his slowed-down and chopped-up take, Kende provides his signature Swiss beats, and Hoodboi himself reworks “Closer” into an uber-melodic, uptempo “Moonrise mix” that races like the best video game soundtrack you’ve never heard.
