«Como si Electric Wizard hiciera un disco de R&B»: Shlohmo anuncia «Dark Red»

28.01.15
Frankie Pizá

Ya sabíamos que «Emerge From Smoke» (la que fuera la primera dosis sonora de Shlohmo servida a través del sello que ahora guiará sus pasos, True Panther) sería tan solo la punta de un iceberg mucho más voluminoso: ayer mismo se ponía en marcha una cuenta atrás en la página oficial del productor de Los Ángeles (uno de los más genuinos a partir de la escena beat-abstracta y uno de los pocos que ha conseguido definir un sonido muy próximo a las leyes del R&B) que iba a culminar en la presentación de «Dark Red», su primer largo desde «Bad Vibes», celebrado documento lanzado en el ya lejano 2011.

Según el norteamericano, que ha colaborado tiempo atrás con Jeremih, para imaginarnos la naturaleza del álbum deberíamos hacer caso a estas comparaciones: “if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record, or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx.»

El capo de WeDidIt ha comentado: “When I started working on Dark Red about two and a half years ago, I had just moved back to LA and built a small studio in my apartment, mostly with my dad’s old gear from the 80s. I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one’s health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not.»

«The only thing I did know going into it, was that I wanted this one to be loud, and not just loud but really really f***ing loud. I wanted the sound of the thing to be devastating and violent. Recordings that force you to feel something even if that something isn’t good. I’m proud to have made something polarizing, a record that’s strong and undeniable even in its moments of pure anxiety and confusion. It’s tragic and painful at times, but that’s all part of it and I want that to be heard and felt. You don’t have to like it, just listen to it.”
