(Friends of Friends)
From the first glimpses of Henry Laufer's work as Shlohmo, it was clear that the LA native and visual artist turned self-taught musician was onto something. With an effortless grasp on sound design, Laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums. His early work has placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers.
The Friends of Friends stalwart and Wedidit founder has been honing his craft since his debut release in 2009 with a series of EPs, his seminal 'Bad Vibes' LP, guest mixes as well highly touted official & unofficial remixes, receiving praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NY Times Sunday Edition, NPR, BBC, The FADER, Spin, Wall Street Journal, Nylon, XLR8R and many more... Now, Shlohmo returns with his unique blend of dark, brooding, sensual and warped R&B, prepping his 'Laid Out' EP for release on March 5th featuring a brilliant guest vocal from How To Dress Well.
