[NEW MUSIC]: SHIGETO'S 'SEMI CIRCLE' EP

April 22, 2010

[NEW MUSIC]: SHIGETO

They say some of the best art is born of struggle, but in the case of Shigeto’s Semi Circle EP, that struggle began more than 50 years ago, when the artist’s grandmother was a prisoner in her own country, locked in a Japanese internment camp in the US. Half a century later, her diminutive, half-Japanese grandson fought to forge his own identity as a musician and bi-racial American, ultimately taking the name Shigeto (his middle name) as a tribute to his great grandfather. The Semi Circle EP, Shigeto’s first release for Ghostly International, is a deep, vividly beautiful suite of electronic music—the opening salvo of Shigeto’s ode to family, melody, and the art of the beat.
