Shlohmo w/Jim-E Stack & D33J

When: Wed., May 14, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Shlohmo is young Henry Laufer, an L.A.-reared electronic music producer who was already a rising force in the city’s venerable beat scene by the time his peers were headed to prom. This, of course, is a major feat considering the same scene spawned the likes of Flying Lotus and J. Dilla (the godfather of that world), among others. Laufer, along with similarly minded producers Balam Acab and Evian Christ, create dense, narcotic beats that are typically topped off with ambient synth flourishes and cooing, tweaked voices. Since 2013, Shlohmo has released two singles with the Def Jam artist Jeremih and worked with the rising R&B singer Banks, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine Laufer producing for someone like The Weeknd, a guy who knows a thing or two about druggy bedroom jams. Jim-E Stack and D33J open. RYAN BURLESON
