Friends of Friends Music Showcase

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Driven by the exceptional curatorial vision and the writing of label boss Leeor Brown, Friends of Friends Music has been helping a new breed of young LA beat-smiths reach a new audience. This stacked showcase features four acclaimed producers, all coming off acclaimed releases, remixes and exposure through some of the world's most important media outlets (e.g. FACT, XLR8R and Boiler Room).

Over the past two years, Shlohmo has emerged one of the West Coast's most consistent producers, remix artists and deejays. His wildly popular remixes of Drake's 'Crew Love' and LOL Boys 'Changes' made their way into countless mixes in 2012 and his 2011 full-length 'Bad Vibes' was widely regarded as one of the defining albums to come out of the LA beat scene. For the past several years Salva has been exploring various intersections between hip hop and underground dance music. With heavy emphasis on 808 beats and expansive sound design, Salva has build up a reputation as "one to watch". Next is the LA/Montreal duo LOL Boys, who had a massive year with underground hits like 'Changes' and remixes/edits of RL Grime, Lil Wayne, Fiona Apple and Radiohead. Another young LA talent, Groundislava is hot off his acclaimed full-length release 'Feel Me', which features collaborations with other LA producers Shlohmo and Baths.

For Jasper Patterson AKA Groundislava, creativity combined with the video game, sci-fi sounds and general aesthetics of the 1980’s have been instilled since day one. A young 20 year-old hailing from Venice, California, Jasper’s father both animated and directed the classic “Take On Me” video by A-Ha and while Groundislava isn’t exactly the next logical step from the Norwegian new wave group, Jasper takes that same...

L.A. native Henry Laufer, the 21-year-old producer better known as Shlohmo, is a lo-fi beat junkie and field-recording enthusiast, whose crackling, low-BPM compositions update Boards of Canada's filmstrip-soundtrack wooziness. An LA native, Laufer grew up listening to "stuff like DJ Shadow, Amon Tobin, M83 stuff with some sort of cinematic vision." He started making beats when he was 14, but "didn't really do it with any sort of purpose until... Read More →
