RIYL: Nosaj Thing, Mono/Poly, Kona Triangle
Label: Ghostly International
Since Shigeto’s last album No Better Time Than Now in 2013, both him and his label, Ghostly International, have gainedÂ an audience of significant numbers. Â With a roster ofÂ pioneering electronic artists from Tobacco to Com Truise to Tycho, Ghostly has remained one of the go-to labels for top tier EDM. Â Shigeto’s jazz-influenced glitch hopÂ styleÂ fits perfectlyÂ into Ghostly’s design aesthetic and demand for high quality, and after the successful Intermission EP in 2015, weÂ finally have his fourth full-length The New Monday on preorder.
Detroit Part II is the first taste of what’s to come, and you’d think it wasÂ a follow-up to Detroit Part I, but the styles of the two tracks are significantly different. Â Part 1 was a much more tripÂ hop-inspired cut with fractured Pac Man blips while Part 2 uses a tribal house beat under a smooth saxophone and Rhodes combo. Â Even a modest fan of electronic music will find something to love in Shigeto’s collection. Â Grab a copy of the limited splatter vinyl after the ‘buy’ link. Â Even at 1500 copies, I guarantee these will sell out within a week.
