“The first single from Shigeto's upcoming full length, No Better Time Than Now, out August 19th/20th on Ghostly. “

Released June 17, 2013.

“Following the release of his third full length, No Better Time Than Now, Shigeto revealed a new video this week for the album’s first single, “Detroit Part 1.” From monochrome scenes in a derelict wasteland to bursts of immense liquid-colours, the video leaves a lot to be questioned and a lot to be discovered. Just over a minute in, a trigger is pulled and pupils are dilated, then the pounding hip-hop beat comes in and from there it’s certainly a dream-like journey, you can’t help but get involved in.” - Ghostly blog announcing “Detroit Part 1” video, August, 29, 2013.

Ringleader (GI-188)
