Los Angeles electronic musician Henry Laufer, or Shlohmo as most know him these days, broke onto the scene in 2011 with his debut album Bad Vibes, drawing early comparisons to other LA experimental hip-hop producers such as Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing. As part of his own beatmaking career, he’s a founding member of Wedidit, a collection of electronic musicians that includes RL Grime and Ryan Hemsworth, and has collaborated with Tom Krell’s How to Dress Well and hip-hop/R&B recording artist Jeremih over the past two years.

But for his first world tour since the release of his sophomore LP Dark Red on True Panther Sounds last month, the 25-year-old is bringing a live band with him for all 36 dates around the globe. To conclude the North American portion of the tour, Laufer performed in front of a hometown crowd at The Fonda Theatre on Thursday, incorporating guitars, synthesizers and drums into his hour-long set (Laufer played guitar for much of it). While his dark, eery and almost psychedelic offerings at times serve more as introspection than dance music for listeners, Shlohmo, who will play in LA again at FYF Fest this summer, remains a rising star in the low-BPM sector of the EDM world.
