Shlohmo – Shlomoshun
Shlohmo’s warbled grooves follow in the wonky (I know, that term sucks) footsteps of established artists such as Flying Lotus and Burial. But, thankfully for his listeners, Shlohmo isn’t just a carbon-copy of his influences. Instead, he builds upon that foundation to craft his own blend of dubstep and hip-hop while integrating elements of psychedelia (“Tomato Squeeze”) and chiptune (“Dead Pixel”). He even breaks into slightly ambient territory, such as on the first minute of “Spoons” before it spirals into a hazy dubstep swirl.
