Unconventional “Dreams” lets rising producer @KidFroopy follow the beat of his own drum

KID FROOPY, “Dreams”

I must admit I was a bit side-swiped upon first listen of the latest by American producer Kid Froopy called “Dreams”.  While Kid has garnered significant attention over the last year remixing the likes of songs by Terror Jr. and having his own music remixed by other rising stars like WRLD, he has remained an enigma who follows the beat of his own drum.  So “Dreams” isn’t really a Dance/EDM track, but an electronic one that might even be better suited for alt.rock and college radio.  Its unconventional chilled out flavour seems to draw from classic 70’s rock like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, yet the lyrics contain a very contemporary edge, with vocals that are alternately quiet or harmonic, not usually found in this kind of record.  After a few listens I expect you will enjoy the different kind of diversity that Kid Froopy is offering here.  Throw back to the first time you heard “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People, and likely scratched your head, that’s my best reference point.  Check out what Kid Froopy’s been up to in “Dreams” at the link above.

“Come First” is breezy fun by @TerrorJrmusic as remixed by @KidFroopy

TERROR JR., “Come First” (Kid Froopy remix)

“Come First” by trio Terror Jr. as remixed by the elusive Kid Froopy is a quirky bit of breezy fun with some punchy guitar riffs that will pull at your ears and make you sway.  This is a next level official remix released by Atlantic that focuses on making “Come First” playful with a shiny, arpeggio-laden melody and a fair bit of repetition.  This may give it a bit of a short shelf like but you’ll be guaranteed to keep coming back to it.  Kid Froopy’s remix of “Come First” is definitely a fine early evening song to successfully coax folks onto the dance floor.  Check it out above and pick it up at your favourite digital store.
