Shigeto (Full Circle Remixes E.P.)

"He world of Zach Saginaw’s Shigeto deepens with Full Circle Remixes, a 9-track EP of new and reinterpreted material from the Brooklyn-based artist’s 2010 debut full-length Full Circle. The package features an impressive international group of artists taking their tools to Shigeto’s originals including Dublin / NYC beatsmith Mike Slott (LuckyMe), LA’s Take (Alpha Pup), Brooklyn’s Mux Mool (Ghostly / Moodgadget) and London-based Om Unit. Many of the remixers here, including Brainfeeder’s Samiyam, hail from Saginaw’s (and Ghostly’s) home state of Michigan, bringing their Detroit / Ann Arbor pedigree to bear on Shigeto’s vividly textured beatscapes. The result is a vital exploration of Saginaw’s ever-growing catalogue as well as an essential companion to the artist’s multi-faceted Full Circle."
