Shigeto - Ringleader

Shigeto's output thus far has been absolutely stellar; last year's 'Lineage' mini-album skirted between tender and being just downright impressive and intricate, as you'd expect from an artist on Matthew Dear's Ghostly label. And his remixes have been nothing short of jaw-dropping, my particular favourite being his beguiling reinterpretation of Sufjan Stevens' heartbreaking 'Futile Devices'.

Expectations are high (for me anyway) for his new record coming out soon on Ghostly, and this new track 'Ringleader' with its chopped'n'screwed beat and chimes, serves as a warm reminder as to just why Shigeto is so magnificent at what he does.
