With his latest release, Hoodboi retains his throne as one of the most innovative rising producers in the nation’s club scene. The Los Angeles-based producer makes his highly anticipated return to Fool’s Gold Records today with “Glide” feat. Tkay Maidza.
Hoodboi’s 2015 debut EP Palm Reader was a bold leap from the R&B bootlegs that fans first caught wind of, ushering him into praise by listeners and critics alike. HYPEBEAST described Hoodboi as “The cream of the crop when it comes to young talent currently making noise in Los Angeles.”, while COMPLEX named him as “one of the most promising artists in the electronic scene.”
Tkay Maidza is the Zimbabwe-born, Australia-based pop singer who’s been praised by Rolling Stone, Stereogum and Highsnobiety for not only her melodies, but her rhymes. “She’s a better rapper than singer, as evidenced by “Tennies,” an ode to tennis shoes, but the winsomeness of her chorus in the M.I.A.-esque “Simulation” should have yielded a hit. The album’s standout jam is “Monochrome,” in which she revels in her ethnicity and rhyme prowess and tells the rich to fuck off. A.S.” – Rolling Stone
“Glide” is a dangerously catchy house tune; a dissonant structure pillared by Maidza’s nostalgic blend of the 90’s and today. Check it out below.
