Another announcement from True Panther this afternoon, in Dean’s words:
Waking up from a miraculous dream…pinching ourselves…only to realize that it’s true.
We’re somehow fortunate enough to welcome one of our favorite young producers in the entire world to True Panther Sounds : Shlohmo born Henry Laufer. We will be releasing his forthcoming music alongside our friends, Wedidit, Shlohmo’s homegrown imprint.
As a gentle introduction to this celestial coupling we’re happy to share the first new original solo music from Shlohmo in quite some time, a single called “Emerge From Smoke”.
We printed up 1000 copies on a 7″ that features a physical-only b-side called “Ode 2 Tha Whip”.
Shlohmo’s sound has evolved in ways that are difficult to describe. His unique approach to production seems as steeped in sludge metal as it is in drum & bass, as much IDM as it is R&B. It is somewhere deep within this sonic collage that he has carved out a distinct and celebrated voice in the electronic music space. His production on BANKS’ 2014 single “Brain,” and his sought-after remixes and crossover style, as witnessed in this year’s collaborative release with Jeremih, are further evidence of his immense talent and wide scope of influence.
Next spring also signifies a return to the stage for Shlohmo with a massive headlining national tour, his first with a live band, with more details on its setup to emerge in the new year. With Shlohmo’s new approach to his live set, new label home and new single “Emerge From Smoke,” Shlohmo’s 2015 marks a very exciting and distinct musical direction with a big announcement to follow after the holidays.
