Shallou & Slow Magic: Into The Wild Tour
2017 brought major changes for shallou. The Maryland-born musician and producer came to electronic music after moving to Chicago, where he began recording songs in his bedroom. His debut EP All Becomes Okay catapulted him from obscurity to prominence via strong word-of-mouth buzz. He sold out his first headlining shows, amassed over 100 million Spotify plays, had multiple SiriusXM #1 singles, and landed on the Billboard Dance charts. And shallou is just getting started.
Souls, shallou’s new EP, looks to continue this progression throughout 2018 with major festival appearances, a proper North American headlining tour, and multiple artist collaborations.
A DIY project with worldwide scope, Slow Magic is universal and inclusive. It's cosmic electronic music culled from the ether, yet crafted with human hands. It's joyous, escapist, multi-disciplinary art that mixes transcendent performance with the nostalgic intimacy of two teenagers staying up too late on the phone.
After the release of 2012's beloved and critically-acclaimed Triangle, Slow Magic became an international movement after touring with artists like Gold Panda and XXYYXX. Crowds found a masked man in their midst, bathed in fantastic light, with electronic triggers and a drum. The future-primitive combination infused the project's electronic compositions with new life.
How To Run Away, Slow Magic's debut with Downtown Records, reflects this growth, oozing both otherworldly beauty and a mastery of production. Lead single "Girls" is deconstructionist house with an organic pulse and collaged, handcrafted samples. "Hold Still" sculpts elastic organs and jazz piano into an emotionally-pummeling finale, while the melancholy "Let U Go" merges watery dub with spectral piano and "Closer" plays like a '90s R&B fever dream.
Slow Magic is music by your imaginary friend.
