CMU Approved

Approved: Shigeto

By | Published on Thursday 20 June 2013


Producer Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, has been putting out music through Ghostly International since 2010’s ‘Semi Circle’ EP, releasing his second album, ‘Lineage’, last year. Eighteen months later he’s back with the third, ‘No Better Time Than Now’, due for release on 19 Aug, on which he develops in his trademark sound yet further.

Two tracks have so far been released publicly, ‘Detroit Part 1’ and ‘Ringleader’. The first begins as instrumental hip hop, but gradually morphs into a soulful piece led by a percussive thumb piano melody. ‘Ringleader’, meanwhile, takes on board similar sounds and layers them sleepily over tight, upbeat drums.

Check out both tracks here:
