NorCal up-and-comer, Michael Petzel a.k.a. Shlump, has been establishing himself over the last few years in the underground, future trap circuit as one of the West Coast bass scene's freshest, beat culture inspired producers. Using a distinct blend of 808 centered percussions, uniquely bubbly sound design and undeniable, bass filled attitude, Shlump has concocted a style that finds the perfect balance between thoughtfully understated hip-hop beats and adrenaline pumping, party starting melodies.
Shlump's latest fourteen-track LP, Fracture (STM011), released through Trevor Kelly and Treemeista's ShadowTrix Music label, proves to be an especially ground shaking exploration and further maturation of Shlump's already deeply established musical personality. Throughout its extensive tracklist, Fracture offers listeners a highly diverse, yet cohesive showcase of the vast capabilities of Shlump's quirky, swaggy, bass heavy sound, with remixes from Trevor Kelly, BOATS, PartyWave and PROKO.
