After their successful collaborative track Bo Peep (Do U Right) in 2013, L.A. electronic artist Shlohmo and Chicago R&B crooner Jeremih (he of Birthday Sex fame) are back with an entire EP of sexy co-pros.
Shlohmo provides the beats and breaks; Jeremih the quietly purred-out vocals. The former is allowed to experiment, subtly shifting soundscapes, while the latter's mostly confined to repeating the same lustful lines, e.g. "I wanna fuck you all the time," on Fuck You All The Time Remix. Not that it doesn't require skill. Sensing his place amidst the slow-burning electro pulse is a testament to Jeremih's restraint. Knowing when to turn it up - more emphatically asserting himself with repetitions of "I'm gon' do you right" on Bo Peep - is just as important.
The whole thing is enjoyable if not deeply impactful. The goal is to make us feel some typa way - but only Let It Go (Jeremih goes for broke, Shlohmo conjures dramatic 90s synths) really gets under your skin.
