The DJ: Shlohmo
Props: Visual artist Henry Laufer has been steadily gaining recognition as self-taught musician Shlohmo, whose gritty lo-fi snares have shaken up remixes for Little Dragon and Jeremih. His brand of indie psychedelic trip-hop is cinematic in its lustful and languid tones, and littered with samples of field recordings for an earthy, shoegaze feel. Sharp and sultry like a good wine, his most recent album Bad Vibes is a warped jungle of deep and dainty beats that wade in and out of strikingly retrofitted static sound qualities, stitching the past to the present and raising the bar for future indie electronic producers.
