After recently releasing his ‘Intermission’ EP, Detroit polymath, Shigeto, aka Zach Saignaw, is set to tour the UK next month, alongside Ghostly International labelmates Heathered Pearls and Lord RAJA with shows in London, Brighton and Leeds, as well as a run of other European shows.

Venue (produced by VSCO) recently shared a captivating live performance of Intermission track ‘Do My Thing’, which bought together Shigeto and fine artist/ designer Michael Cina.This project was inspired by A Century of Artifice, a comprehensive retrospective of Cina’s artwork for Ghostly International, and by a short film of Shigeto on tour in Japan showcasing his explosive live interpretations of his own electronic productions. Aware that the two artists have consistently intersected on the packaging for Shigeto’s discography, Venue wanted to provide a space for their creative interaction to be realised in a new way. The resulting film also serves as a nod to the significant contribution that Ghostly International has made to progressive culture for the past 16 years.
