On his latest EP, Shlohmo takes his versatility to a new level with sounds from the recent rise in alternative R&B and trap.

Shlohmo drops yet another track from his forthcoming Laid Out EP, which is dropping in March. This particular cut features vocal contributions from alternative R&B pioneer How To Dress Well.
It’s a really spacey, detailed track. Not only is there some trap influence coming from the hi-hats, but there’s some particularly emotive vocal work toward the end of the track. Who knew these guys could work so well together?

Electronic music producer Shlohmo drops a track from his forthcoming EP, Laid Out. The song is titled “Later,” and it’s absolutely beautiful with its atmospheric bass synths and what seems to be a distorted vocal sample. Before I go on, let me say that I’m loving this friggin’ sample. It’s a great chunk of audio, and it’s applied perfectly in this trap-style instrumental.
The way the track progresses is fantastic, too, getting more and more intense with its jittery snares and hi-hats as the track moves along. Can’t wait for this EP!
Some stellar videography coming from this fan-produced video for the Shlohmo track “The Way U Do.” The song comes from his new Vacation EP. Y’all know my thoughts on the music, but the visuals here are something else. Some really dark and strange imagery coming from these costumes and these models (model?).
Directed by Andrey Nikolaev and edited by Miguel Bidarra. Get this new Shlohmo EP on FoF.
A couple of months back, we were treated to a remix of Shlohmo‘s “It Rained All Night,” which appears in its original form on the beat maker’s recent Vacation EP, from fellow electronic music producer Nicolas Jaar. Now, we have a set of visuals, put together by former Caribou and Crystal Castles collaborators Video Marsh, to accompany the reworking. The video closely examines the intricacies of a series of diversely colored, unidentified fluids that slowly drift across the screen through a slightly grainy filter, matching the effect of the song quite nicely.
Watch the clip above, and feel free to head over to Friends of Friends to purchase the EP, a handful of originals and remixes both included.
