    New and expanded CD version of Shlohmo’s top-selling ‘Shlomoshun Deluxe’ LP, adding a further seven tracks which were first released on June’s download-only ‘Camping’ EP. While working an internship at dublab.com, 19 year old LA native Shlohmo made a free online release of his original ‘Shlomoshun EP’. Being part of the dublab community, it didn’t take long for the EP reach the ears of Friends Of Friends, who immediately approached him to combine new and old tracks with an assortment of remixes to create ‘Shlomoshun Deluxe’.

    First released digitally at the start of 2010, the eight original tracks and four remixes have generated huge interest among the low-end beat-heads and abstract boom-bap-strumentalists searching for their latest fix of post-modern deconstructivist thunk, with the young producer finding his sounds aligned with luminaries like FlyLo, Nosaj Thing, Ras G and Samiyam, and lauded for a diversity of sound from the overloaded synths usually sported by Starkey and Joker, to the 8bit melodies of Disrupt or Ikonika.

about

After meeting him while interning at the creative music community and internet radio station dublab (www.dublab.com), the Friends of Friends label was lucky enough to come across Shlohmo's Shlomoshun EP free online a few months back. Immediately hitting up the 19 year old LA native, the label approached him to combine new and old tracks with an assortment of remixes(wouldn't be FoF w/out friends!) to create Shlomoshun Deluxe for digital release. With an arsenal of unique sound textures, intriguing found sounds and big bass beats, this young one is ready.

With beat and soundscape arrangements that leave the listener hypnotized, the songs breath life from the organic and electronic worlds colliding. Fan favorites "Hot Boxing The Cockpit" and "Antigravity" place him right amongst neu-bass contemporaries like Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Ras G and others in the Low End Theory-fueled Los Angeles beat scene while a track like "7am" oozes Dilla-esque swagger; all the while remaining effortlessly cinematic.

To really bring home the "Friends of Friends" theme on this release, Shlohmo has invited Low Limit (of Lazer Sword), Fulgenace (Musique Large), Tokimonsta (Brainfeeder) and devonwho (Klipmode) to handle remix duties, acting as a brief showcase for Shlohmo and some of his people.
