The L.A. producer Shlohmo is only 23, but he’s an insanely gifted songwriter and remixer in the midst of a well-deserved meteoric rise. If you’ve got doubts, put them to rest with this unreal, five-minute Electric Guest remix, in which Shlohmo takes the underrated duo’s “The Bait,” shifts Asa Taccone’s vocals almost beyond recognition, and lays them over a heavily-edited, gorgeously layered soundscape of eerie, moonlit sounds. Put this on the next time you’re walking at night in the rain, and catch Shlohmo on tour with fellow young gun XXYYXX this fall.
