Amoeba Review

10/05/2017

Zach Saginaw's work as Shigeto is the perfect blend of many well-tuned elements. This is the right amount of acid-jazz weirdness, house beats, and hip-hop infusion that's on par with the best artists from the West Coast's Low End Theory scene. Breaking apart, dissecting, and chopping beats to blend the unusual with an ounce of chill and create music beamed from outer space, Shigeto uses his experience of moving from Brooklyn to Detroit to bring out an album that feels closer to the house pioneers of the '80s. His first album in four years shows the depths the new experience gave him by infusing all these elements with the right amount of soulful jazz improvisation. In a way, this feels like a real spiritual successor to Creed Taylor's legendarily smooth productions for CTI. Named after his DJ residency, Monday is the New Monday, The New Monday is pure candy for the ears. "Detroit Part. II" blends so many different sounds into a beautiful cacophony. There's a touch of Herbie Hancock funk experimentation in the synth parts, some Bennie Maupin with spiritual sax licks, and playful beats that would make Madlib proud. Shigeto's return to Detroit has given birth to a record that's equal parts personal and intimate, and still manages to be perfect for a late-night DJ set. There's something so mellow and zen about this album that you'll be riding on a wave of blissful chill beats.
