Release Date 06/10/2010
Better known to friends, family, and Friends of Friends, as the 20-year-old Henry Laufer, the SF-by-LA producer Shlohmo returns with Camping, a digi-EP celebrating the May 24th first-run vinyl release of this year's Shlohmoshun Deluxe LP. Having already headlined LA's premiere beat-based party, Low End Theory as well as being featured by XLR8R, the BBC (Mary Anne Hobbs), LA Times and more, Shlohmo is on the tip of the ear for those attuned to the spaced out beat scene led by Flying Lotus, Ras G, & Nosaj Thing, among others...
As far as titles go, Camping is particularly apropos; the outdoor and indoor collide as Shlohmo's selection of found sounds rub up the technology of 8-bit blap & subwoofer stress tests in three new tracks. Additional amenities include remixes from hotly tipped LA music maker Baths and fellow up-and-comer Asura as well as recent Ghostly International signing Shigeto. There's also a rework from Shloh' himself, flipping Shlohmoshun Deluxe opener "Tomato Squeeze" into "Tomato Smash." Camping comes just as Shlohmo stakes out a brand new full-length and will surely tide those itching to hear what Mr. Laufer has in store for us in the near future!
