Austria, Vienna in particular, got Dorian Concept and The Clonious when it comes to forward-thinking beat music. Both these guys have a unique style rooted in Jazz, Soul and Funk but filtered and distorted by their love for electronic (dance-) music. While the scene strongly focuses on the US Bay Area and the UK, originating from Austria makes you an outsider still. But being overlooked is not necessarily a problem. Abby Lee Tee a.k.a. DJ Abillity calls Linz home, and what we hear from down there is 100% next level shit.

This is my first post, hello all! My name is Sven Swift, I'm co-curator at Error Broadcast net- and recordlabel. We are publishing experimental Hip Hop music, mostly instrumental. Ask for a style, we prefer to put Post Dilla as tag but this is only for the first impression.
In the near future, I'll be blogging about underground Rap tapes you can find for free download usually. Today I got to let you know about the latest addition to the Error Broadcast catalogue, Frisco-based youngster Shlohmo.
Shlohmo had a bad-ass EP out in June 2009. "Shlomoshun" was extraordinary well received in the scene. His style owes a lot to Flying Lotus when it comes to the way he interloops beats and textures. It's dirty, it's sludgy, still it gets you by the neck once Shlohmo lets the wonky beats peak. However, with "Shlo-Fi", his long-awaited new EP, Shlohmo man is getting real deep. Here's the liner notes:
"19-years old Shlohmo delivers the soundtrack for the LA aftershow. His tracks swarm from dirty textures, strange sounds and obscured samples. It’s not Hip Hop what you hear, but the echoes are clearly there: under the blanket the beats are alive and kicking, the compression is awful (as we love it) and from the way Shlohmo arranges his tracks, it is clear what this kid listens to at night."
