    About SK Shlomo

    Simon Shlomo Kahn knows how it feels to be on top of the world. For over a decade, the genre-defying, award-winning, recording-breaking beatboxer, producer and live-looper has set new standards for his craft.

    As Shlomo, he burst in to the mainstream collaborating with Björk and performed with famous fans from Damon Albarn, Lily Allen and Jarvis Cocker to Imogen Heap, Martha Wainwright and Rudimental. As the first ever World Looping Champion, he taught his friend Ed Sheeran some tricks. He was Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre for years, played the main stages at Glastonbury more times than he remembers, won rave reviews for his autobiographical one-man shows and even had a feature film made about him.

    Under his new moniker SK Shlomo, Simon found himself taking a ‘dark pop’ direction after listening to lots of Caribou, Jamie xx, SOHN, FKA Twigs, James Blake and Massive Attack. There’s Superhuman, a gorgeous, disorientating ode to addiction that describes the musician’s darkest moments and the clubby Stardust, a sparkling collision of chaos and calm that celebrates new beginnings. The crowdfunded album Surrender, self-written and produced, blends beatboxing, synths and samples with lush floods of of layered vocal harmonies, and is slated for release early 2019.
