We've been fans of HOOD JOPLIN for a while now. She's been reppin the Juke/Footwork/160 sound in Canada for a while with the Kudatah crew playing shows with DJ Taye (Teklife), Flying Lotus, Robert Hood or Chippy Nonstop to name a few. She is also a RBMA Bass Camp alumni & finalist of Serato's Sample Challenge. When we asked her to do a track for our Street Bangers Factory series last year, she teamed up with another incredibly talented producer named TEXT CHUNK to deliver "Stranger", one of our favorite tracks we released in 2018 described by the Ransom Note as "an elegiac 160bpm banger that sounds just like the light at the end of the tunnel". COMPLEX wrote about the first single is "Keepflowin'": "A riotous footwork track that became the unofficial anthem of this year's Dekmantel Festival when it became a favourite of many of the DJs on the line-up. "Keepflowin'" is bound together by a relentless flurry of 160 beats and rumbling bass, while the (literally) unapologetically in-your-face vocals grab you by the scruff of the neck and send you headlong to the dancefloor."
