Slutterhouse could be described as an outlandish crossover between underground electronica, mainstream club music, and rock n’ roll. Most importantly though, Slutterhouse’s sound is the result of an alliance/tension between two very different personalities: Rabih Salloum and Nabil Saliba.
Based between Beirut and Paris, Slutterhouse released their debut album Made in Dance in the fall of 2009; it was described by Time Out Magazine as “one of the finest electro-pop albums this critic has heard since Gary Numan first donned eye-shadow.” Slutterhouse’s debut record received both critical and public acclaim, while the band was featured in prestigious magazines such as ELLE and The Daily Star, and even made the cover of the February 2010 issue of Lifestyle Magazine. The band was also featured as Artist of the Week on numerous blogs such as Indie Music Universe, I Am Entertainment, and NRG Theory Management, Release Music Magazine, TwoGroove, and Pure Live Gigs.
The duo delivers intense electronic songs, merging Rabih’s catchy pop/rock voice and melodies with Nabil’s space-themed retro electro world. Their sound was compared to acts like Depeche Mode, Cut Copy, Crystal Castles, MGMT, and Aphex Twin.
