FOOLiE joins the Spotlight Mix Series

Share

Going against the norm has been FOOLiE’s modus operandi from the start.

Having dabbled in producing Trap, Hip-Hop, and dubstep tunes, FOOLiE eventually found his true calling in House music. House really allows him to flex his interest in the strange with tunes heavily influenced by his love for all things Sci-Fi. It’s this affinity for “the strangest of sounds” that landed him his first release on Maximono’s This Ain’t Bristol in late ’17, arguably one of the hottest labels at the time. 

In short order, FOOLiE went from being completely unknown, to releasing on TAB and shortly after debuting at San Francisco’s top clubs for House Music, Audio SF, courtesy of the tastemakers at Space Yacht. Since then he has yet to let up on his relentless work ethic. He’s been on an absolute tear adding tracks to his catalogue with releases on labels such as Dirtybird, Trippy Ass Technologies, Box of Cats, Psycho Disco, Main Course, My Techno Weighs a Ton, Medium Well, House of Hustle, Audiophile XXL, and handful of self-releases. In addition to this, he has enjoyed the regular appearances at clubs all across the SF Bay Area as well as the appearances he has made in the Central Valley, The Mojave Desert, Reno and Tampa. 

Despite starting off with virtually no following, FOOLiE’s relentless work ethic has more than cemented his presence in the underground scene as well as made him a staple in the Bay Area scene. Breaking into the scene as he did is no small feat but capitalizing on it and constantly putting out work like he has is something to behold. To say he hit the ground running is an understatement and it’s only a matter of time before his career truly takes off. 

Even though the pandemic put a hard stop to club appearance the work never stopped. With the reopening of clubs came his biggest release, the Conversations Album out on Trippy Ass Technologies, his most ambitious effort thus far. This 15-track project was followed by a slew of releases including drops on Basement Leak, Box of Cats, and This Ain’t Bristol (once more), to name a few. Nowadays it’s back to business-as-usual tearing up the local clubs, the underground afters, and headlining appearances across the country.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
