This year has been a great one for electronic infused hip-hop, with heavy albums from Dam Funk, Flying Lotus, Lorn and Andres to name a few..add Shiegeto to that list. Surprisingly to us the album ‘full circle’ is getting released on ghostly International, which for me reminds me of some crazy Matthew Dear and Claro Intalecto techno EPs I bought a few years back. Either way this bad boy launches on November 22nd, keep an eye out for it!
“The sounds on Full Circle come from four years of obsessive field recording and collaboration. Saginaw brought his Tascam mini-recorder with him everywhere, capturing the “glasses, chains, breathing, children, family meals, monks singing in cathedrals, walks in the south of France, and good friends offering their musical skill” that would all find homes in the record’s compositional nooks and crannies”
In “French Kiss Power Up” a romantic digital strut gives way to discord and fragmentation as the waves of synthesizer give way to a shaky, neurotic coda..blissful one may say
