Shigeto: What We Held On To [FREE EP]

Posted by Jakub

After a weekend of playing with Tycho, Mux Mool, The Sight Below and Solvent, Shigeto offers up a FREE 5 song EP for your listening pleasure. The songs have an array of influences ranging from jazz, IDM and Detroit instrumental hip hop and he also gives us a sneak peek of what’s to come on his first LP Full Circle which is coming out this fall. Download the EP here. I highly recommend the song Grandma’s Words / Rise Out Of The Stone, it grows beautifully.

Below is a sample of what Shigeto shares on his soundcloud account which includes a few unreleased song.

Thanks for the heads up Jakub. The EP has a nice balance of textures without leaning too much in any one direction – but, at the same time, the vibe stays consistent. I’m digging ‘Bitter Sweet’…kind of has a subtle Madlib (on a mildly blunted day) feel to it.

Good vibrations…
