Shlohmo "Hot Box the Cockpit"
With a sound that brings to mind the more herky-jerky moments of Nosaj Thing's productions and the vinyl-ripped ambiance prevalent in much of Flying Lotus' material, "Hot Box the Cockpit" is an interesting piece of bass music from SF-via-LA beatsmith Shlohmo. A flutter of birdsong brings us into the track before a slow, arpeggiated synth swells up into clicking rhythms and a buzzing bass drop, sending the song off into the stratosphere. "Hot Box the Cockpit" is taken from the re-release of Shlohmo's EP, Shlohmoshun, by the Friends of Friends label, which comes with additional remixes from Low Limit (of Lazer Sword), Tokimonsta, and devonwho, to name a few.
Shlohmoshun Deluxe is out Jan 12.
