Shlohmo is 25-years-old Henry Laufer, LA-native and visual artist turned self-taught musician. As a founding member of the WEDIDIT collective (RL Grime, Groundislava, D33j, Purple, 2kwtvr, Juj, Nick Melons), Henry’s early work placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers. With an effortless grasp on sound design, Laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums. With his second full-length album "Dark Red", he crafts a personal journey through noise, fused with sludge and black metal sound textures, keeping his unique musical aesthetic at the same time.
