Henry Laufer, aka LA-based producer Shlohmo, creates music that evades genre classification: lo-fi, chill wave, trip-hop, experimental pop, and “psychedelic synth-funk” have all been tossed around, though he prefers not to box in his style to one category. At 18, still a senior in high school, he started the Wedidit Collective with his RL Grime. He dropped out of college to make his first album two years ago, and has since been signed to Friends of Friends, releasing two albums.
His music is slow, but precise and romantic. Characterized by strong, hip-hop drum samples and slow, ethereal melodies, a beautiful combination emerges as equally suitable for dancing as for laying on the floor, holding hands. Enjoy some of his stand out tracks (above), and be sure to check out the WeDidIt Collective for more amazing lounge-esque music.
