Shigeto/Heathered Pearls/Beacon/Fake Species

When: Tue., Sept. 10, 8:30 p.m. 2013

At times minimalist and soul-searching, electronic musician Shigeto seems to dose his beats with just the right amount of color and texture. Listen to the water droplets and wind chimes adorning “Ringleader” for an illustration of that. His beats often expand into something dense and heady. And like most artist drawing on a jazz lineage, his sound is more *cinematic* than the flat 4/4 beats coming out of most mainstream hip-hop and electronic music. Just last week, he released the new video for “Detroit Part 1,” which features kaleidoscopic tones over a bass-heavy dirge. Check out the rest of No Better Time Than Now for the full ramifications of Shigeto’s sound. (Sandy)
