Shlohmo Unveils Resident Advisor Podcast
- Words: Elissa Stolman
The globetrotting LA native and beat-making wunderkind Shlohmo (a.k.a. Henry Laufer) took a moment during his European tour to deliver a mix for Resident Advisor's podcast series. The screwed set unites the many disparate elements of Shlohmo's persona and sonic palette that have developed his distinctive voice as a producer, from his beginnings in the West Coast beat scene to his penchant for pop and R&B tunes and his bass-driven, slow-mo aesthetic—who else would see it fit to slow down a Burial tune? Shlohmo's syurpy selections come from a few of his WEDIDIT crew members like Groundislava and RL Grime, some beat scene-oriented artists like Lapalux and Ras G, and a couple hits by the likes of Ja Rule, Ashanti, Rick Ross, and T-Pain. You can check out the RA mix for yourself and read a brief interview with the beatmaker here, and peep the tracklist below.
