From his freshly released second EP, Shigeto‘s “What We Held On To” is another intricately produced piece of melodic beat music. The track is full of micro-samples, wafting atmosphere, and crunchy textures—all wrapped around the Michigan-based tunesmith’s slap-heavy beats and plinking synth melodies. It’s another reminder of how preciously constructed Shigeto’s music is, and how, no matter how many moods he flips within one track, each one is treated with delicate care and painstaking attention to detail. You can snag this track, along with the entire new EP, for absolutely free from Ghostly, here. Full Circle, Shigeto’s first full-length album, will see the light of day later this year.
