Event Review| Shlohmo in Seattle 4/25

Wednesday, April 30, 2014


Shlohmo's bass hit Seattle last Saturday like the wave of sound he intends it to be. A sold out crowd at Neumo's, right in the heart of the legendary Captiol Hill neighborhood, rocked to his theme until security kicked everyone out. With his minimalist production, nothing more that LED's formed in the shape of a brick wall with roman pillars framing his throne, strobe lights, and house can lights, he had the whole place moving with in seconds of the first boom of the subwoofers.

An 11 o'clock PM set time gave everyone plenty of time to enjoy their preferred prefunk action (Bout that action, boss). Everyone from the mezzanine 21+ area to the 18 year old's in the front row could not help them self from vibin'. Especially Shlohmo him self! He was clearly enjoying the responsive crowd and would react as the crowd was clearly getting more and more into his set as it progressed. The crowd knew the songs from the first bass wobble and it was awesome.

He killed the bass levels perfectly and when his remix to Young Scooter's Cocaine came out it was the biggest reaction yet. He knew it would be big, it obviously always is, but it awesome super dope to see the DJ jammin' right along with the crowd.  When No More with Jeremih was dropped unexpectedly in the middle of the set, not a single person was not moving. From the upper deck, it was a sea of vibin' people like turbulence on a plane. Shlohmo is a must see show and comes highly recommended.
