FRESH is an innovative electronic dance party, happening every first Friday at Holocene. From the first glimpses of Henry Laufer’s work as Shlohmo, it was clear that the LA native and visual artist turned self-taught musician was onto something. With an effortless grasp on sound design, Laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums.

His early work has placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers.Inspired by the desire to write songs and create a release of full-range instrumentation and vocals all his own, Laufer promptly began home-recording ‘Bad Vibes’, his proper full-length debut album for the Friends of Friends label.

Some might say the songs on ‘Bad Vibes’ represent the spawn of a new “rhythm and blues” — one that swings and sways under the backbone of Henry’s own take on modern electronic music. Augmented with delicate slide guitar playing, homemade synth sounds and lilting, tuneful melodies, Shlohmo’s latest output is one that will take you places — specifically the un-paralleled vibes swirling through this young man’s head.

a lo-fi beat junkie and field-recording enthusiast, whose crackling, low-BPM compositions update Boards of Canada’s filmstrip-soundtrack wooziness for the dubstep generation.” – Resident Advisor

      I discovered Shlohmo through a playlist of LA artists posted on Spotify by Superhumanoids, and it was LOVE_AT_FIRST_LISTEN.

    YES! I remember the first time I saw schlomo, at a random bar kiddie corner from the Doug fir. He played what will remain my favorite remix of “my neck my back” to date. I would love to win tickets, it’s great to see him coming to Holocene.
