Better known to friends, family, and Friends of Friends, as the 20-year-old Henry Laufer, the SF-by-LA producer Shlohmo returns with Camping, a digi-EP celebrating the May 24th vinyl release of his Shlohmoshun Deluxe album. Having already headlined L.A.'s premiere beat-based party, Low End Theory, as well as being featured by XLR8R, BBC Radio 1 (Mary Anne Hobbs), L.A. Times and more, Shlohmo is on the tip of the ear for those attuned to the spaced out beat scene led by Flying Lotus, Ras G and Nosaj Thing, among others.
As far as titles go, Camping is particularly apropos; the outdoor and indoor collide as Shlohmo's selection of found sounds rub up the technology of 8-bit blap & subwoofer stress tests in three new tracks. Additional amenities include remixes from hotly tipped LA music maker Baths and fellow up-and-comer Asura as well as recent Ghostly International signing Shigeto. There's also a rework from Shloh' himself, flipping Shlohmoshun Deluxe opener "Tomato Squeeze" into "Tomato Smash." Camping comes just as Shlohmo stakes out a brand new full-length and will surely tide those itching to hear what Mr. Laufer has in store for us in the near future.
