Another student of the LA downbeat skool, young Shlomo
has been proving himself as one to watch with a recent
XLR8R podcast and now his debut LP for Friends Of Friends,
featuring remixes from Tokimonsta, devonwho, Fulgeance
and Low Limit (aka Lazer Sword).
Like his Cali peers Samiyam or Flylo, Shlohmo is one
of those cosmically inclined cats, producing a sun-bleached
sound that transfers its laidback and juicily psychedelic charge
like a glugged carton of spiked OJ. The ethreal boom bap of
'Post Atmosphere' is one of our personal highlights, as is the immense
'Hot Boxing The Cockpit', sounding like Rustie meets Paavoharju,
or even with the exquisitely gloopy electro-soul of 'Antigravity'.
The savvy list of remixes only makes this an even more
enticing package, including Tokimonsta's intricately folded
remake of 'Hot Boxing...', backed next to Fulgeance's gangsta
squeezing version of 'Antigravity' and Low Limit's incredible
Theo-laced house-soul mix, further proving why his name is going
to be every-bloody-where this year! Shlohmo stands out from his
chosen crowd of beat-makers with a delicate personality and d
istinction that requires your attention if you've been bewitched
by Ras G or Flylo.
