In a statement made to FACT Mag, Shlohmo had this to say about Dark Red:
“When I started working on Dark Red about two and a half years ago, I had just moved back to LA and built a small studio in my apartment, mostly with my dad’s old gear from the 80s. I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one’s health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not.”
The second single off the album is Burial, which hints at a more somber direction for the producer. In a similar vein the album’s first single, Emerge From Smoke, Burial offers up a darker sound while still retaining the dramatic quality heard on his previous productions.
