“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.
