Hoodboi cranked up the feels on “Closer,” his new single with ASTR. Now the LA-based producer (and Athletixx co-founder) has rounded up friends from around the globe to put their own spin on his festival jam. Singapore’s MYRNE brings future bass slap, GANZ dials up the bass direct from Amsterdam, Denmark don ELOQ mixes tempos with flair, and Rytmeklubben cap it off with their hyperactive, Norwegian pop vibes. Hoodboi’s “Closer” remix package is an international turn up team-up like none other! Listen to the EP here.

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!

After teasing you with date and city announcements (and selling out earlybird tickets before revealing a single act), we’re psyched to release lineups for this year’s edition of FOOL’S GOLD DAY OFF events, hitting Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Miami and Austin starting August 29th.
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? Who can showcase EDM favorites Flosstradamus and Alison Wonderland alongside nu-millennial MCs D.R.A.M. and Post Malone? 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
Tickets for all five DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com, along with recap videos and photos from the last five years of FGDO shows, featuring Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Juicy J, Young Thug, French Montana and many others. Read More
