Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label has turned us onto some impressive new artists, with Kid Froopy being one that stands out to us every time. We’ve had the pleasure of linking up with Froopy on premieres for “Dreams” & “Drive Slow,” the title track of his debut EP, Drive Slow, we're excited to be premiering today.
Kid Froopy has had a busy year so far and keeps his output up with this new 8-track project. In addition to his releases on Deadbeats, the newcomer has shared a spree of remixes and linked up with one of our favorite groups Terror Jr to contribute production on their two most recent projects we've had on repeat. Froopy has a distinct sound that's difficult to classify but always leaves us impatiently awaiting his next release.
He has a way of crafting tracks that are incredibly relaxing while bright and catchy at the same time. The talented artist utilizes his infectious vocals alongside shimmering, mystical production is a dreamlike way that's entirely his own. This is an artist you should become familiar with if you aren’t yet so be sure to check out the full EP, which includes remixes from Niko Blank, umru, Lil Texas and Ducky. To celebrate this debut EP, Froopy will be taking over Beats 1 Radio show HYPERHOUSE for a special guest mix that will be airing Friday Oct. 20 at 12AM EST. Be sure to catch Froopy on tour alongside Terror Jr as well - see dates below. Enjoy!
