The world of Zach Saginaw�s Shigeto deepens with Full Circle: Remixes, a 5-track EP of new and reinterpreted material from the Brooklyn-based artist�s 2010 debut full-length Full Circle. The package features an impressive international group of artists taking their tools to Shigeto�s originals including Dublin/NYC beatsmith Mike Slott (LuckyMe), LA�s Take (Alpha Pup) and London-based Om Unit. Many of the remixers here, including Brainfeeder�s Samiyam, hail from Saginaw�s (and Ghostly�s) home state of Michigan, bringing their Detroit / Ann Arbor pedigree to bear on Shigeto�s vividly textured beatscapes. The result is a vital exploration of Saginaw�s ever-growing catalogue as well as an essential companion to the artist�s multi-faceted Full Circle.
The artists on Remixes approach Shigeto�s material from a multitude of angles, playfully prying apart Saginaw�s meticulously ramshackle rhythms and teasing out new subtleties. Samiyam�s �Chopsticks� remix of �And We Gonna� is underpinned by a woody click-clack, lending forward momentum to the track�s stair-stepping synth; Take�s expert take on �Look at All the Smiling Faces� is a melancholy slice of digital psychedelia, churning and whirling like a primordial pool. Mike Slott�s take on �Relentless Drag� plunges the track into a smokey abyss, adding a touch of stoned sadness to the original�s lumbering menace;
