-SHIGETO (LAPTOP SET)-
"Artists take on pseudonyms for a multitude of reasons, but in Zach Saginaw’s case, those reasons run deeper than most. Zach records under the name Shigeto. It’s his middle name; it’s also his grandfather’s name, a tribute to the Japanese branch of Zach’s family tree. Shigeto also means “to grow bigger”—appropriate, given Zach’s premature birth-weight of less than a pound. Today, Shigeto stands for Zach’s vividly beautiful electronic music. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto’s music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades." - Ghostly International
-HEATHERED PEARLS [DJ SET]-
"Unlike some ambient music, Loyal, Polish-born Jakub Alexander’s release under the Heathered Pearls moniker, embraces the idea of melody with understated but distinct sounds emerging from the loops Alexander uses to construct his tracks. Pitchfork says lead single, “Beach Shelter,” “feeds off the same kind of unsettling ambience as Tim Hecker’sRavedeath, 1972, where the sense of a malevolent force lurking just beneath the surface is prevalent throughout. It’s filled with coarse, sandpaper-y textures, all pulling together to create a sense of quiet abrasion.”"
