Whoever said sequels are never as good as the original hasn’t heard this.
LA beatsmith AKA Shlohmo has been on my radar since his album Shlomoshun Deluxe was sent to WODU by Terrorbird Media. Today, he announced that his new album, Bad Vibes, would be released on August 9th on the Friends of Friends label. In order to whet the appetites of his followers, he also provided the 2nd volume of his Remix series. Hands down my favorite remix is of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard In Da Paint” which replaces the original’s machine gun-like beat and military horns with something that sounds more in the vein of Aphex Twin’s “Selected Ambient Works”.
