Video: Shigeto, “Detroit Part 1″

FADER PREMIERE:
Last week, Detroit producer Zach Saginaw released No Better Time Than Now, the synthy, hyperactive follow-up to 2012′s Full Circle his debut album under the Shigeto moniker. “2012 was a powerful year for me,” says Saginaw in the press release for the new record. “I played nearly 180 shows in 360 days; I made the move back home from Brooklyn, NY to Detroit, MI; a six-year relationship of mine came to an end and I made it 30 years on the planet.” This Rafe Scobey Thal-directed short film for “Detroit Part 1″ carries an appropriately introspective tone, capturing a noirish voyage through a world of crime and mystery where if you get shot in the back of the head in one scene, presumably by your own body double, you somehow always survive into the next. No Better Time Than Now is out now via Ghostly International. Tourdates below.

    Saginaw’s perspective and summation of his recent time is quite poignant.

    The track traverses an urban jungle into a tropical rainforest
