We shared a live version of Shigeto‘s “Detroit Part 1” with you the last time, now there’s an official music video directed by Rafe Scobey-Thal. The video has it all it takes to win my love, beautiful cinematography and a storyline, not to mention the music from the newly released album No Better Time Than Now. You know what to do, just make sure to do it in fullscreen and high definition!
Here’s our secondShigeto post for today, this time following the Ghostly-signed producer as he plays a cut from his new album in a car the middle of the desert of Idaho. That, of course, sounds a lot like Into The Wood’s Carsick series, who regularly invite producers for a ride.
I didn’t see this coming, but following last year’s Lineage, Shigeto already completed a new album for Ghostly International. For some the Michael Cina artwork might be reason enough to get a copy of the vinyl record, but if the rest of the album sounds as fine as the track above, there aren’t any excuses for not getting “No Better Time Than Now”. According to the Ghostly store, pre-orders will ship around August 20th.
Update You also want to check out this video of Shigeto playing live. In a car. In the desert.

Not that many mixtapes this time, but enough to get you through a weekend. And hey, it’s never been about quantity, has it?
The latest Solid Steel show just went up on SoundCloud and this week it’s been Brighton’s Ital Tek stepping up on the decks. Download now!
Al Tourettes comes from Bristol and both his production and DJ mixes are a bit darker than what you usually get served here. If you’re not afraid of that, check out his Besti-mix.
Until very recently, I was a bit worried not to have heard any new music from DZA, but the Moscow-based beatmaker just released a new EP on his own label. What a good occasion to promote it with a guestmix for Cosmopolyphonic (there’s also a free tune!)
You are probably subscribed to BTS Radio for a long time, but let me make sure you haven’t missed the latest guestmix from Shigeto!
Only four days left until Shigeto‘s debut Full Circle will be released on Ghostly, so the Brooklyn based producer decided to give away another track to his supporters. You can download it from his SoundCloud page and leave him a comment.
Following a couple of EPs on Moongadget and Ghostly, Brooklyn based Shigeto is set to release his first album Full Circle. Apparently, there will also be a remix album and that’s where this Samiyam remix is taken from.
Full Circle will be out on Ghostly on November 19, but don’t ask me about the remixes. In the meantime you can download the remix, another track can be found over at the YSK blog.
