Since his inception in 2016 ‘Slacksss’ has been DJing the local Philadelphia scene as well as picking up an MPK and getting to work in Ableton. Now, two years later, he has supported the decks with Volvox, Soul Clap, Harry Romero, Gina Turner, and many other friends, he has released his first EP through Say Less, and he continues to try and one-up himself. If he plays one track that makes you think “Dang I need this”, he’ll have done his job. Look out for the homie and get your ears in check!
Doing bedroom music things in the burbs of Philadelphia, ‘Slacksss’ is all about sharing. With a keen ear for beats that make you subconsciously nod your head, he hopes to spread his listening adventures with the general public and get a rise. ‘Slacksss’ got into instrumental music at an early age listening to hip-hop masters like ‘J Dilla’ and ‘9th Wonder’. These beats eventually lead him to the electronic side where he found light in ‘Flying Lotus’ and ‘Samiyam’. Further exploration finally lead him to the rabbit hole of dance music. House, Disco, Tech-House, Techno, there’s no end to the plethora of great dance music and it is something that more people need to hear.
