Vacation, the new release from LA native Shlohmo is the epitome of all that is good about this young producer. Its three tracks melt together down tempo synths, well poised glitch, RnB snares, iconic syncopated guitars and warm, rumbling bass. The RnB-esque vocal samples on the first two tracks, chopped and pitched with a poignancy reminiscent of Burial, add a new dimension to Shlohmo’s distinct sound. Opening track The Way U Do is a stunning example with searing vocals riding over suitably dark synths, warm pads and incessant clicks. Vacation came out on 7 February, which you can buy over at Boomkat and listen below to our two favourite joints.
