Listen to ‘Buried’. “It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record,” says Shlohmo

Shlohmo – real name Henry Laufer – released his debut album, ‘Bad Vibes’, in 2011.

Today his better know for producing ‘Brain’ for BANKS, and remixing Drake, although that is probably about to change.

Laufer has signed a new deal with True Panther Sounds, for a new LP. ‘Dark Red’ is coming 6 April 2015, and ‘Buried’ (below) is a promising sign for fans of dark electronic music that likes R&B but isn’t still trying to closely imitate Janet Jackson’s ‘The Velvet Rope’.

Or, as Shlohmo himself puts it: “It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record… or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx.”
