OUT NOW: Electronic Producer dj poolboi Releases Grime Single ‘easy’ Featuring Flowdan

[On Flowdan’s Black Rain EP] "Shooting Range" encapsulates the EP's dark, almost ambient mood, with its choral samples and ethereal synth pads, and Flowdan's instantly recognizable booming voice

Resident Advisor


[On Flowdan] “He’s a stick of dynamite”

NME Magazine


“Flowdan has an unmistakable tone: deep, low and gruff that, out of nowhere, rises to a controlled roar that hits you square in the chest.”

The Fader


[On Flux Pavilion and DISKORD’s 'Locked In ft. Flowdan’] “The boisterous bass track is enhanced by Flowdan’s slick lyrical flow and beckons us to the dancefloor.”

DJ Mag


[On dj poolboi and Theresa Ng’ambi’s ‘malo okoma’] “Together they transformed the track from an already vibrant and rousing piece of house music into a joyous love letter to Ng’ambi’s home, all sung in the Chewa language and delivered in a Zambian folk style”

COMPLEX


[dj poolboi’s ‘la nuit n’en finit plus’ is] “s a dreamy excursion into evocative electronics.”
CLASH Magazine


“With the new wave of lo-fi hip-hop setting a relaxed soundtrack across the world, there are not many artists that do it quite as rapturously as Austin, Texas-based artist dj poolboi.”

EARMILK


“He goes by the name dj poolboi and something that's quite paradoxical is the somewhat tongue-in-cheek name, compared to the depth and the emotion conveyed within his craft.”

Rising electronic producer dj poolboi has shared his latest single, ‘easy’ featuring the notorious British MC Flowdan on the 18th of February. The single appears on his impressively diverse upcoming LP, stay just a little while longer which will be released on the 18th March via Unbelievably Spectacular and features a wide variety of genres including dream-pop, afro-house, hip-hop. Hailing from East London, grime legend Flowdan is one of the original founding members of the well-known grime collective Roll Deep (with Wiley, Skepta and Dizzee Rascal amongst others). Independently, Flowdan founded the SpentShell label and has been supported by the likes of Resident Advisor, Complex, Pitchfork, NME, Stereogum, The Fader, EDM.com, Mixmag, Clash Magazine, Dancing Astronaut, DJ Mag, Magnetic Magazine, This Song Is Sick, Fact Mag as well as airplay from BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra’s Jeremiah Asiamah, Logan Sama’s mix for BBC Radio 1’s Residency and Rinse FM’s Sir Spyro. The MC has also been featured on UKF Dubstep, Grime Daily and Boiler Room Youtube channels.

dj poolboi himself is born and based in Austin, Texas. Since the artist’s debut LP in 2020 which he released through Majestic Casual, he has also released music via Shall Not Fade and created official remixes for Moby, yeule and Alan Fitzpatrick's side project 3STRANGE, racking up over 55 million plays to date. The producer has appeared on stage at Goldenvoice's Splash House Festival and opened for Ross From Friends, Baltra, Chaos in the CBD, DJ Seinfeld, George Fitzgerald and park hye gin to name a few. 

dj poolboi finds inspiration in all forms of music, including experimental, indie, classical, contemporary pop and even film scores. Having focussed predominantly on the realms of techno and house, this unique single calls to mind the likes of Skepta, Dizzee Rascal and Stormzy. 

In ‘easy’, dj poobloi’s production style pivots once more as Flowdan’s signature deep vocals envelope us into the world of old school hip hop. Flowdan’s unstoppable rhythmic delivery sets the pace for the single, as the basslines and snares find themselves rising and falling around them, bringing the energy while still providing the space for slick, impactful lyrics.


Featured rapper Flowdan tells us about the inspiration behind the single: “‘Easy’ was inspired by the panic spreading around leading up to the first lockdown. dj poolboi had the perfect instrumental for me to express my rebellious attitude towards the situation.”
