Influenced by the likes of Amon Tobin, J Dilla, A Tribe Called Quest, and DJ Shadow, Henry Laufer – aka Shlohmo – crafts nuanced downtempo beats outlined by exciting and spontaneous electronica textures.

Shlohmo has established himself as a key member in the burgeoning Los Angeles DJ/electronica scene. His name is often seen in tandem with D33J, Ryan Hemsworth, and Flying Lotus and his sound is highly comparable to the chillwave era style of Baths and Teebs.

Laufer started composing music as early as age 14 and by 17 he began to develop a strong sense of direction, penning sweeping electronica orchestrations in the vein of Nujabes and J-Roc. As a youth he received inspiration from artists performing at the electronic music night club, Low-End Theory and with his rise in the music scene, he has since been a featured musician at the club. Additionally, Shlohmo co-founded the Internet label, the Wedidit collection when he was still in high school.

Laufer has proven himself to be a proficient studio artist as well as a performer, releasing a total of 3 EPs between 2009 and 2010 before putting out his full-length debut “Bad Vibes” in 2011. He released yet another EP in 2011 and followed that up with 2012’s “Vacation”, 2013’s “Laid Out”, and 2014’s “No More”.

Laufer is not only renowned for his solo project Shlohmo, he has also attracted positive attention from his remixes. He has reworked tracks of artists ranging from New Zealand based DJ/producer Flume to pop-experimentalist Tomas Barford.

Laufer’s most publicized remix was his revision of “Fuck U All the Time”, a track by hip-hop/ R&B singer Jeremih. This collaboration led to a rekindled partnership with Jeremih for the release of “Bo Peep (Do U Right)”. This track was highly successful and went on to be featured on both Yours Truly and Adidas Originals’ 2013 “Songs from Scratch”. The hype from this song led to a collaborative EP between Jeremih and Shlohmo, which was released in 2014 through Def Jam Recordings. The EP generated a fair amount of buzz in response to the premiere of the single “No More” on NPR.

Additionally, Laufer has collaborated with ambient soul experimentalist How To Dress Well and has done production work for Flash Bank Grenada and Banks.
