“Shlohmo’s already one of the better producers of his young generation.” – Pitchfork
“Shlohmo stakes out an unlikely turf where
the ambient meets the abrasive.” – The New York Times
“There’s a good chance somebody will be feeling nostalgic for
Shlohmo’s hi-hats one day. – The Fader
After another successful year, having just completed a US Tour promoting his latest EP release Laid Out and collaborations with the likes of BANKS and Jeremih, the LA-native Shlohmo is starting his European tour on February 27th in Berlin. Followed by another US Tour and a performance at Coachella, everything indicates that 2014 is going to a great year for Shlohmo.
Shlohmo is the creation of 22-year-old Henry Laufer, visual artist turned self-taught musician. As a founding member of the WEDIDIT collective (RL Grime, Groundislava, D33j, Purple, 2kwtvr, Juj, Nick Melons), Henry’s early work placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers. With an effortless grasp on sound design, Laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums. Receiving support from Pitchfork, BBC Radio, the New York Times, NPR, Resident Advisor and many others, Shlohmo leads the way in a new generation of promising young producers with his unique blend of dark and sensual R&B tropes.
