Last year Perera Elsewhere dropped her debut album on FoF Music, a compelling 13-track EP of ‘off-kilter pop’ laden with vocals and minimal production that both seem heavily influenced by a yin and yang of moody and dream-like states. Now the Deluxe edition of her venture has dropped, this one containing all the original tracks as well as a brand new selection of remixes from the likes of Shlohmo, Benjamin Damage, Kyoto, and more. Each track from the album got a revisit, and cleverly enough FoF have put Shlohmo’s remix of “Light Bulb” up for stream on Soundcloud. Considerably more urgent sounding than the original, Shlohmo’s remix takes the track to his signature dark place – this time with a grinding repetition and siren-sounding synths.
Laura D and Three Wise team up yet again to bring this weeks top picks for the Dirt! Check out some chill vibes from Patchrik, King Thing, Marvin Gaye and Duncan Murray a lil bit of hip-hop from Childish Gambino, Nosaj Thing x Chance The Rapper and uplifting deep cuts from Kill Them With Colour, Kenny Gray and Autograf.
For her latest release entitled “Brain”, BANKS recruited fellow LA suburbanite Shlohmo to help produce the track. If the sheer mention of those two names isn’t enough to make your lip quiver, knees buckle and heart skip a beat, then you may want to check your pulse. It’s the kind of collaboration that dirty dreams are made of. BANKS’ truthful, undisguised lyrics are equally matched by Shlohmo’s spellbinding beats. “Brain” draws you in then builds into a controlled, scintillating frenzy. By the time the song reaches its paralyzing climax, you won’t even know what hit you. “Brain” is dark, dazzling perfection.
My dude SuS Boy has put together a little video to announce the very exciting collaborative release from Shlohmo and Jeremih out jointly on WeDidIt/Def Jam in February. Happy holidays y’all…
The turn down is real in Shlohmo‘s latest post-2 a.m. remix. Pitched vocals with rumbling sub-bass and rolling looped hi-hats complete the Shlohmo transformation that will leave you floored post-club. Laura Mvula is someone to keep an eye on here as well, with Prince wishing her the best before her massive performance in LA last night. It wouldn’t be Shlohmo if he wasn’t ahead of the curve.
Yours Truly and Adidas have brought together WeDidIt’s Shlohmo, and Jeremih, to create an original production for their “Songs From Scratch” segment. By now you may have heard Shlohmo’s remix of Jeremih entitled, “Fuck U All The Time,” and I’m sure that had some bearing on the decision to get these two in the studio together.
Based off the ‘making of’ video that aired a little over a week ago, Shlohmo laid down the track first and then the vocals and bars from Jeremih were added. The artwork was commissioned by Saiman Chow and to thicken this plot up a little bit, Shlohmo and Jeremih will be performing together on April 5th and 6th in San Francisco.
Ever since one of LA’s most fascinating labels Friends of Friends did a rambunctious takeover of Boiler Room, they’ve solidified a place in my heart as an enigmatic and refreshing label with unmatched originality. These guys are the weirdos that maybe you’re not supposed to understand, maybe you are, I don’t really know. But it’s cool… whether you “get it” or not… the point is they’re straight up making really cool music in a very new way and they’ve definitely made it work.
Hi, I’m Laura. A few of you may know me as the discreetly evident “little sis” of the GDD family, but it’s my great pleasure to announce that my newest sisterly duty is helping my lovely bros out with content. Now that Gotta Dance Dirty has a little bit of girl power up on the site (shouts to Tamara & Olyvia…) I figure it’s time to hold things down by presenting my own unique weekly content. Enter Science Sundays. Myself being a mega science-buff (ie: nerd) I’ve always been fascinated by the way both chemicals and music can alter your brain state. Pretty magical stuff, right? They don’t call music a drug for nothing…
Each weekend, I’ll be focusing on one substance and its general effects on the body, but much more importantly I’ll be including a few of my favorite jams that go hand in hand in enhancing or defining the way that particular substance makes you feel.
To kick off the first round of Science Sundays, we’ve got perhaps my all-time favorite neurotransmitter: Oxytocin. Read more & check out the tunes that are reminiscent of the “love hormone” after the jump!
