Minnesota’s own Corbin (F.K.A Spooky Black) and L.A. based producer Shlohmo are currently on the back end of their 16 date tour which started in Orange County, California on September 7th. His long awaited homecoming date was sold out well before the night of the show and it was only fitting that it took place at the first venue Corbin ever performed.
With a line around the block long after doors opened, the energy in the air was palpable. D33J opened up the night with a great set leading into Shlohmo’s electric performance. A set full of crowd favorites and a few unreleased records, Shlohmo was impressive from start to finish. At only 27 yrs old he’s a producer/artist that all music lovers should have on their radar. As Shlohmo’s set wrapped up, chants of “Corbin, Corbin” could be heard louder and louder while he held the crowd in suspense. An artist who has a certain mystique about him, Corbin’s stage props and visual backdrop immersed fans in a stupor. His booming vocals and droning demeanor floated over Psymun’s production with a chemistry rarely matched among up and coming artists now a days. Towards the end of Corbin’s set, fellow St. Paul native Bobby Raps made a guest appearance sending the venue into an uproar. It was clear that these guys are beloved in their hometown and that the sky is the limit. Corbin and Shlohmo will finish off their tour on the east coast with dates in Boston (9/26) and Philly (9/27), before the final date in NYC (9/30).

Music doesn’t need to be happy. Music doesn’t need to have lyrics. Music is an art form that paints our emotions in the form of time – it is in temporal order, so take it how you will. Shlohmo continues to produce music that has it’s very own rhythmic dark tones that let the mind to be free within it. Let’s stay away from genres and all the other topics on this one too. What we should be focused on is his latest album, Dark Red, to be released on April 7th. I can already see Christopher Nolan adapting a film to the first two tracks. Hear that Nolan?! In the end, pen in the release date, press play and enjoy.
Spooky (Corbin) dropped some newness today with “Worn”. The track features production by Shlohmo, D33J, Bobby Raps and Psymun. With the new release, we continue to witness the evolution of Spooky’s music. By linking up with ever talented WEDIDIT, his music is reaching a whole new level – press play and turn those speakers up to see what exactly we mean.
