FACT mix 277: Shlohmo




Hot on the heels of his recent album 'Bad Vibes' comes this new mix from Shlohmo. Opening with a chopped and screwed version of 'Tears for fears' it immediately asserts itself as no ordinary run of the mill selection.  Featuring tracks from Hiphop heavyweights like Nas & Three six mafia, fellow LA native Asura and Shlohmo himself.  Several other oddities are included such as 'Excerpt from a dub cassette i found in a shoebox with my friend on mission st. san francisco'  & 'audio rip from that adidas commercial from like 7 years ago or something' , that he has procured on his travels.


Audio quality isn't paramount here, rather the progression of the tracks and the journey Shlohmo is taking us on. The mix is a mire of pitched down beats, grooves and off kilter percussion, mirroring Shlohmo's own warped style that features heavily in his productions. 


The mix is available to download or stream for the next 3 weeks via soundcloud >>  Shlohmo Fact mix


No embedding on this unfortunately (will update if i find a link)

  12. This was an awesome listen. Long, but awesome. It was fluent and varied which is just perfect in my eyes, it doesn't get boring that way.
