Back after his near four-year hiatus and fresh off the release of his new record, The New Monday, Detroit-hailing Shigeto stopped by BBC to deliver an especially chill mix. Jumping on the guest mix for Benji B’s BBC Radio 1Xtra, the Ghostly International artist has put together a lustrous, spellbinding live vinyl mix.
Shigeto kicks things off with three new tracks from Archy Marshall, otherwise known as the UK indie rocker King Krule. He then sets the stage for an absorbing array of tunes to follow by delving into the mix with three tracks off Marshall’s latest record The OOZ. From there, the artist continues to hold the attention of his listeners in a masterfully balanced assemblage of tunes.
He smoothly pulls off a transition from the heavy grime rapper Giggs to American solace songstress Kelela — and interestingly enough, it works. It echoes a sentiment of keen auditory balance, but such is engrained in the M.O. of an artist the caliber of Shigeto. Take his new album, for example, The New Monday: the record is a culmination of all that he loves about Detroit, namely rap, techno, jazz, and smooth house. It’s for that reason that The New Monday shines, and why the BBC mix does, too.
