Listen To: SHIGETO


NY native beat producer Shigeto has been building steam for a couple years now with a series of drumkit-centered bass bumpers, but his latest effort, Lineage, takes his project to new heights. Channeling the best of the California beat scene, Shigeto mingles crisp drums with tantalizing snippets of electro-acoustic percussion samples and touches of jazz piano melodies, all backed by sustained synth grooves. Alternatively restrained and exuberant, this is beat music at its most seductively smooth and cerebral, with innumerable layers of intricately crafted ear candy. Perfect headphone music to keep you warm and comfy on those stark windy nights You can pick up Lineage now from Ghostly Intl, or better yet buy it from the man himself when he rocks Boston with label-mate Mux Mool at the Wonderbar next Wednesday, Feb 29. Don’t sleep.
