Shlohmo Announces Two New Zealand Shows

Wednesday 18th June, 2014 10:35AM

LA-based electronic producer Shlohmo (real name Henry Laufer) is heading to New Zealand for two shows in September. The 22-year-old self-taught musician is one of the founding members of the WEDIDIT collective, and has collaborated with singer How To Dress Well, as well as remixing tracks for Robot Koch, Tomas Barfod and LOL Boys. His debut album Bad Vibes was released in 2011, and since then Shlohmo has placed a whole horde of EPs under his belt. Supporting his New Zealand dates will be Christchurch electronic musician Kamandi. Here are the details...

SHLOHMO (WEDIDIT/US) - NZ TOUR 2014

With Kamandi & guests to be confirmed

Shlohmo is the creation of 22-year-old Henry Laufer, LA-native and visual artist turned selftaught musician. As a founding member of the WEDIDIT collective (RL Grime, Groundislava, D33j, Purple, 2kwtvr, Juj, Nick Melons), Henry’s early work placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers. With an effortless grasp on sound design, Laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums. Receiving support from Pitchfork, BBC Radio, the New York Times, NPR, Resident Advisor and many others, Shlohmo leads the way in a new generation of promising young producers with his unique blend of dark and sensual R&B tropes.

Kamandi (aka Tyrone Frost) is one of the leading lights of New Zealand's contemporary electronic music scene. Hailing from Christchurch. A beat-maker, producer and live performer, Kamandi's forward leaning soundworld draws measured influence from both the LA beats scene and the deeper, meditative side of the UK bass music continuum.
