Consisting of singer/multi-instrumentalist Louie Rubio and producer Lex Larson, Los Angeles duo Doc Hollywood has been rising on the streams with highly energetic sounds that have invaded international dancefloors in recent months. The pair’s upcoming debut album We Run LA is expected to carry a healthy dose of this “catchy and sizzling potent mixture of electro.” Today, we present their new single “Palm Springs House” featuring Ya Boy. Along with it comes a conversation with the band about their music, upcoming projects and why the West Coast is the better coast,

What is the story behind “Palm Springs Beach House?”
Louie: We were inspired by Coachella and started messing around in the studio. I wanted to make fun of typical summer songs so I made one about a beach in Palm Springs since there obviously is none. I never imagined that it would actually get on the radio.
Lex: It’s also a song about getting away from your stalker ex. I think everyone can relate to that. So, next time your ex wants to know where you are, just tell them you’re at your Palm Springs beach house. They’ll have a hell of a time looking for you there. The song is getting radio-play here in LA on Power 106 and KIIS FM which are big stations here. Big shout out to DJ Felli Fel and DJ Drew for blowing up the record. We’re blessed and thankful for our hometown support.

How did you partner up with Ya Boy for the song and why is he the perfect collaborator for this tune?
Louie: We already did a radio hit with him before so we already have great chemistry. It was called “We Run LA” — that song was big for us. At one point Ryan Seacrest was calling it his favorite song, and now he uses it as the theme for his show on Bravo.
Lex: Ya and the best part is that led us to make themes for other TV shows. We have one on TBS for their hit show “Deal With It” and we just got done making one for NBC. It’s been a roller coaster ride.

What can you tell us about your upcoming new album with Ya Boy in terms of sound and concept? How does it stand in relation to your previous and future works?
Lex: We don’t have a name yet for our new album with Ya Boy but the album is almost done. We just need to mix and master at this point.
Louie: I’m singing the hooks and Ya Boy Rich Rocka is rapping the verses. The album is a mix between The Weeknd and west coast rap with a vague touch of 60s psychedelia. We slowed down our usual BPMs for this project but overall it feels more cinematic than our previous projects.

What can you tell us about your upcoming projects: ADHD, and Escape From Paradise?
Louie: We’re making Escape From Paradise as a soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist. So far it sounds like a dark 80s thriller, probably something Brian De Palma would make after Scarface. It’s pretty immersive. I’m doing much more singing than before. It’s also more lyrical. It’s definitely way darker than anything we’ve made in the past.
Lex: As far as EDM we’re also working on the ADHD EP which is a sequel to our ADD EP. Right now it’s got a Nu Disco and Deep House vibe but you just never know where we’ll take it since we’re constantly editing and tweaking.

The West Coast is the better Coast because…
Louie: Tacos, weather, beaches, snow, deserts, forests, the list goes on and on. I’m a big fan of the East Coast too though, but I’ll always rep the coast I’m from.
Lex: We’ve got a lot of people everywhere, Miami, NY etc. — I’m ready to hit the road again.
