Shlohmo – The Way U Do

February 11, 2012

With his hypnotic, trudge-through-the-mud mixes, L.A. producer Shlohmo creates a sonic experience that feels utterly visceral. Like on “The Way U Do”–the smooth synths combined with the grit and grime of an old factory makes a listener feel stuck somewhere between a bad drug trip and a good one. It’s the tempo of this track, always lagging behind as if it’s attempting to complete the race with weights attached to its feet. But Shlohmo never settles into one generic nook, and it’s these constant changes of scenery that keeps “The Way U Do” completely engrossing for all 5+ minutes.
