When two worlds collide like this the results will always be special. ‘Don’t Say No’ divulges in Shlohmo’s love for R&B (during a chat last year he mentioned to us that his favourite song of 2012 was from Jeremih, who he’s recently been recording with also) and rather rightly calls on Tom Krell, known more commonly as How To Dress Well to piece it all together. Shlohmo lays down unraveling and immersive slow jam of shattered beats and elongated synths as HTDW’s fragile, sometimes fractured vocals tell a tale of heartbreak. ‘Don’t Say No’ is taken off Shlohmo’s upcoming Laid Out EP, due out on March 4th viaFriends of Friends/WEDIDIT.

Coincidentally both Shlohmo and How To Dress Well appear (separately) in RBMA’s H∆SHTAG$ web-series on internet music culture – watch HTDW’s episode on #AltR&B here, Shlohmo’s episode to be released soon.
