Terror Jr
Terror Jr
Terror Jr was born on the first day of Spring . . . 3 seeds . . . Morphed together to create a demented flower. Growing on the edge of Bop City . . . They observed the people and wrote about their experiences as their own. Bop City is full of regret, attraction, ugliness, hope, and terror. Lots of Terror.

kid froopy is a singer, songwriter & producer who makes songs for 🙂 and :'(

Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Kid Froopy appeared on the internet in 2015 with uploads on soundcloud, gaining massive support out of the gate from Beats1 radio host Anna Lunoe on her Beats1 radio show HYPERHOUSE. In addition to support from Beats1, he also had the honor of being the first ever submissions selection from Skrillex’s blog Nest HQ, putting him in the limelight on the soundcloud scene.

In the next years, he released remixes for Robokid, Champagne Drip, and eventually caught the ear of acclaimed producer & Athletixx co-founder, Hoodboi, who released Froopy’s remix of his song “Closer” with the A-Trak’s label Fool’s Gold and set the stage for Froopy’s first ever single.

With the buzz building in late 2016, internet-savvy Moving Castle reached out and released his first official single “bb (four missed texts),” which went on to smash all expectations, receiving over 1 million+ streams on Spotify & Soundcloud, and drawing praise from the likes of NYLON, Earmilk and Pilerats among others.

After having such a massive first single drop seemingly out of nowhere, he caught the eyes of the electronic music heavyweights Zeds Dead. Zeds Dead immediately enlisted his services on their remix package for their high-octane single “Frontlines” and signed his upcoming EP, “Drive Slow” to their label, Deadbeats, due out in late 2017.

Additionally, the pop group Terror Jr., which includes Felix Snow & Campa the production/writing duo behind Kiiara’s “Gold,” found Froopy and enlisted his help on their remix package for their smash single “Come First” alongside rappers Father & Lil B and producer Ryan Riback. The group was so impressed with Froopy’s remix that they enlisted his help on their forthcoming album: Bop City 2: TerroRising, in which he co-wrote and co-produced two songs, “Do Or Die” and “Smoke.”

Kid Froopy is currently planning tour dates across the US and released his first two singles from his debut EP, “Dreams” & “Drive Slow”. His EP will be out in Fall 2017.
