AUSTRALIA / Electronic
Hoodlem, widely known as Australia’s front runner of experimental soul and alternative R&B has recently re-located to Toronto, Canada. In 2016, coverage across popular music media outlets like The FADER, NYLON and CLASH praising her captivating production and stingingly catchy vocals lead to various festival appearances and a European Co-Headline tour. Hoodlem’s quiet yet urgent momentum increases with her already topping the Hype Machine popular charts this year and gearing up for the release of her second EP in 2017.
NYLON – ‘slow-burning beats and a smokey, soulful vibe’
Indie Shuffle – ‘smouldering as usual, this track solidifies Hoodlem as a breakout candidate this year’
The Fader – ‘a slow moving number embellished with synth-work reminiscent of Jai Paul and grounded by a Flying Lotus- like bassline that wavers insurgently throughout’
