Hoodboi – Glide (feat. Tkay Maidza)

hoodboi glide

Hoodboi releases Glide featuring Tkay Maidza, a future R&B track with an old-school vocal vibe. I felt like I was taken to the future and past at the same time on this one. Hoodboi builds a downtempo, tech house vibe behind the vocals. With oscillating ambiance and a dynamic percussion arrangement, the production comes with a lot of movement. Another versatile aspect are Tkay’s vocals.

Tkay’s voice is versatile on the track, giving me an Azealia Banks vibe on the verse and a faster-paced TLC vibe on the hook. The Australian-based, Zimbabwe-born singer/songwriter released her debut album in 2016 off Interscope. She also supported Charli XCX on her Australian tour in 2015.

Roger Schami aka Hoodboi is and LA-based producer and graphic designer. He moved to LA in 2004, where he started producing underground hip-hop/electronic music. In 2011, he helped form TeamSupreme, which includes production superhero, Mr. Carmack. Hoodboi started getting attention from turntablists for his 90s club edits. One of these turntablalists was A-Track, who later signed him to Fool’s Gold Records.  Hoodboi has since collaborated with Lido, Djemba Djemba, Alison Wonderland and many more.
