Shlohmo getting set for live tour
Hey EM fans! Get ready for a big year for this guy.
Henry Laufer, better known by his stage name Shlohmo, is an electronic musician from Los Angeles about to go global. He is a founding member of Wedidit, has collaborated with How to Dress Well, and remixed tracks by Robot Koch, LOL Boys and more. Shlohmo also released his debut album, "Bad Vibes," back in 2011 and an EP, "Vacation," in 2012. The "Laid Out" EP arrived in 2013.
Now Shlohmo is looking to the future, gearing up to release his sophomore album, "Dark Red," on April 7, 2015. One of the tracks, "Buried," is out now and is described as a change in direction for the artist into somewhat angst-y territory.
Shlohmo recently talked to Mixmag about the new project and said, "The only thing I did know going into [the album] was that I wanted this one to be loud, and not just loud but really, really f***ing loud. I wanted the sound of the thing to be devastating and violent. Recordings that force you to feel something even if that something isn't good. I'm proud to have made something polarizing, a record that's strong and undeniable even in its moments of pure anxiety and confusion."
Shlohmo is also getting ready to head out on his first-ever live tour, which is slated to kick off March 21 in San Diego, California. The North American jaunt will visit some big markets, including New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans and more. He'll also cross into Canada to play in Toronto and Montreal in mid-April.
There's good news for fans of Shlohmo. The EM producer recently announced he'd be touring North America following his scheduled appearance at Coachella, and that tour has already been expanded. Read on for more!
Not only does Shlohmo have a NYC gig happening on May 7 at Music Hall of Williamsburg, he's also added a date at the Bowery Ballroom the very next day. And all of this comes after Shlohmo played SXSW, joining R&B singer Jeremih for his set at day 2 of FADER Fort. The rest of that lineup included Chromeo, Theophilus London, Eagulls, Sam Smith, Mas Ysa, Connan Mockaskin, Glass Animals, 100s and Buscabulla, but fans were heavily into Shlohmo's appearance. The reason?
Fans of Shlohmo will know that he recently teamed up with Jermih for a collaborative EP that is due out soon. The disc will be entitled "No More," and will release via WeDidIt/Def Jam. The new project also comes on the heels of their track, "Bo Peep (Do U Right)" as part of the Yours Truly and Adidas Originals' 2013 "Songs from Scratch" series. AKA, these guys have history and fans are eating up everything they're putting out.
Shlohmo (real name Henry Laufer), a founding member of Wedidit and an artist who has remixed tracks by the likes of Robot Koch and Tomas Barfod, will round out his North American trek with stops in Philadelphia, Washington, DC., Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Austin and Albuquerque. Be sure to grab tickets to check out the LA native and enjoy his performance in 'Shlohmo'tion.'
