The offbeat producer returns with a new set of dark, charming melodies.
As they have always been, in 2013, Detroit’s shining stars are their musicians. Zach Shigeto Saginaw, who records simply as Shigeto, hails from Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he has become a key member and rising star of avant garde electronic label Ghostly International. His second full-length album, “No Better Time Than Now,” is due August 20th. You can check out the premiere of one of its tracks, “Olivia,” exclusively here:
Since the release of his first album, “Full Circle,” in 2010, the producer has put forth a steady stream of singles, remixes and EPs, though his return to an album was always part of the plan for the artist. “I'd say my preferred way to release music is via an “album’,” says Shigeto. “I like having the music come as a package -- as a whole idea with artwork and a story behind it. It makes it into something more for your senses than just sound.”
