Cutting Edge Electronic Artists Shlohmo and Salva hit DBGB TONIGHT

Shlohmo and Salva

September, 15

One of the best reviewed american electronic producers of the year so far, Shlohmo comes to DBGB in Allentown TONIGHT. The 21-year-old L.A. producer, real name Henry Laufer, burst onto the scene this year with a maturely textured, rich full length album called Bad Vibes. Bad Vibes contains anything but bad vibes though, combining indiscript sound patterns, slow motion hip-hop beats, and Bibio-like funk grooves to create sublime soundscapes on tracks like “Places” and “Anywhere But Here.” FACT Magazine called his downtempo beats: “the junction of abstract hip-hop, dubstep, shoegaze and funky psychedelic rock.” This guy isn’t any one thing and that is what makes his otherwise abstract music so intriguing. Joining Shlohmo on this west coast to east coast journey is super-funky-synthgazer Salva. Where Shlohmo is subtle, Salva is in-your-face with frantic laser-like synth-funk riffs on tracks like “Wake Ups.” Don’t miss this rare opportunity to check out some of the most cutting edge and hailed electronic musicians on the planet currently when Frosty Tone presents Shlohmo and Salva at DBGB TONIGHT! Local record spinners the Verdict, Big Basha, Demi God, and Drop D will also be on hand to keep the crowd moving.—cory perla

    The Federal Govt. is operating so far outside of its design parameters that this type of discussion becomes futile. IMO the place to begin is reducing income tax which would force massive reductions in power and programs, bringing the govt. more in line with the founders structure. Only then can a discussion vis-a-vis federal and state govts. become worthwhile.
