Earnest Endeavours present Shlohmo & Salva // 02-02-12

January 30, 2012

Earnest Endeavours, Kutmah’s re-born Sketchbook night and the certified HIT+RUN screenprint crew have a new monthly art and music party in London and the first guests are Cali beatheads Shlohmo and Frite Nite boss Salva (plus resident DJ Kutmah) this Thursday night at CAMP, London.

Shlohmo has long been a Brownswood favourite since his ‘Shlomoshun’ “LP” turned heads in 2010 and earned him a spot on the first Brownswood electr*c . Salva is the man behind Frite Nite who originally brought us B. Bravo’s funk opus ‘Computa Love’ (featured on the very same electr*c compilation) and is an exceptional DJ/producer in his own right.

Shlohmo is Henry Laufer, co-founder of the infamous Wedidit collective (alongside Jonwayne, Groundislava, RL Grime, Juj, D33J and Melonius Drunk) and prolific producer of wonderfully dog-eared, gently swinging thump-click hip-hop beats. His follow up to “Shlomoshun” – debut album proper “Bad Vibes” is steeped in LA’s rich electronic heritage and the depth and warmth of his productions (blessed with his own guitar and vocals) bely his 21 years. Featuring in various ‘Best Of 2011’ lists it’s an incredible hypercoloured, dream album. Shlohmo’s bootleg Burial remix was the most downloaded track of 2011 on XLR8R. His new EP “Vacation” is out on Feb 7th on Friends of Friends.

Salva is the mastermind of the West Coast’s foremost freaky bass collective Frite Nite – a crew featuring the exceptional talents of B. Bravo, Eprom, DJG, NastyNasty and Epcot. 2011 saw the low end technician step up to the international stage and stand shoulder to shoulder with his Frite Nite fam, dropping his debut longplayer – the synth-funk opus “Complex Housing” – and earning a spot at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid. Salva’s “Complex Housing” album and “Yellobone” EP also made it into a multitude of annual lists and his collaboration with EE fam B Bravo – “Obsession” was one of the standout funk club bangers of the year.

For the underground music and arts community of Los Angeles (and a worldwide legion of supporters) DJ, producer and visual artist Kutmah is one of their most mercurial creatives, leading LA’s inimitable artistic renaissance. Starting his Sketchbook Sessions in 2004, the city’s first instrumental beats and art night paved the way for the likes of Low End Theory and Brainfeeder. Kutmah is preparing to drop the second volume in our ‘Worldwide Family’ series for Brownswood – more news on that real soon!

Earnest Endeavours is the label, party and creative collective rooted in London but with outernational links across the world. In 2011 we welcomed a host of guests to our London party such as AraabMuzik, Daedelus, Samiyam, Dorian Concept, Teebs, Starkey, Tokimonsta, Lazer Sword, Alex Nut, Fatima, Funkineven, B Bravo, Darkhouse Fam, Gaslamp Killer, Hudson Mohawke and more.

Hit+Run, the world’s leader in live on-site event screenprinting, was created in 2005 by Southern California artists Brandy Flower and Mike Crivello. A product of the contagious enthusiasm they had seen at small silkscreening parties in their homes, HIT+RUN’s live screenprinting events quickly grew, and today the Crew can be found at everything from Coachella, to the Super Bowl, to Art Basel, SXSW, the Worldwide Awards and more.
