Shigeto Presents New GhostlyCast
In celebration of the release of his debut album, Ghostly International has made available a podcast from Brooklyn/Ann Arbor's Shigeto entitled Old Tress and Young Seeds. The podcast is a 40-minute-plus journey through the music that inspires Shigeto's dense and ethereal instrumental beat compositions and features music from "young seed" contemporaries like Shlohmo and Samiyam as well as tracks from some of the "old trees" of beat music like Dabrye and DJ Krush. The mostly instrumental affair delves into a diverse range of beat music moving from the spacey to the funky to the jazzy in an effortless manner, keeping the head-nodding to a maximum. Some standouts include Dabrye's 2006 remix of Some Water n' Sun's "Snowbreaker," an unreleased Mux Mool track, and a Slum Village tack to remind you where this beat stuff all started. You can stream the podcast below or download for free from iTunes. Shigeto's new album, Full Circle, is available on November 9 from Ghostly International.
