Hoodboi and Djemba Djemba team up for ‘Drowning’
The release follows Hoodboi’s smooth and sensual “Glide,” featuring Tkay Maidza, and comes ahead of his Breathing Room EP, slated for release May 22. Djemba, known for keeping a low profile, has written for and worked alongside some of the biggest acts in and out of the EDM domain, including Diplo, Justin Beiber, and Alison Wonderland.
“Drowning” is one part soulful, r&b ballad, seen through singer/songwriter Julius’s poignant vocals. However, simultaneously the track is an atmospheric display of Hoodboi and Djemba’s characteristically experimental production skills–seen through rippling, distorted sampling.
