L.A. native Henry Laufer, the 21-year-old producer better known as Shlohmo, has garnered momentum in the industry in the past couple of years due to lo-fi and low-BPM compositions. Besides his own creation, it is also his growing catalog of superbly atmosheric remix work that has granted him critical acclaim. His recent musical journey has taken Laufer gradually moving away from from electronica-infused beats toward the soulful sounds, reminiscent of post-dubstep. This development and culmination of Shlohmo’s appreciation for R&B can be experienced on his recent EP offering Laid Out, out now via Friends Of Friends.
