Roots to Grooves – Shigeto

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

This week musicians Jay Purcell and Jessie Quigley discuss the career and creative approaches of “Shigeto“.

Shigeto (aka Zachary Shigeto Saginaw) is an Electronic Producer, DJ and Drummer originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Shigeto spent his formative years immersed in the world of Jazz drumming, originally pursuing his dream to become a touring session drummer. However after developing severe tendentious, he put down the sticks for more than 7 months and during this time was introduced to the world of electronic music production. Realizing he could now bring to life full productions by himself, Shigeto spent the next few years honing his craft, eventually re-incorporating live drumming into his music, as well as his live performances.
