Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto’s music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades. All of this considered, it's not for nothing that his forthcoming mini-LP is called Lineage, the follow up to the acclaimed Full Circle full length from 2010. He has never demonstrated such complete command of his material. Each song is a complex constellation of sounds and ideas, but his compositional focus and restraint grounds songs that are otherwise cosmically inclined.
