The Ghostly International artist gives away his ‘Huron River Drive’ single.
Following the release of his stunning debut Ep ‘Lineage‘ (which we chatted about here), Shigeto has offered up ‘Huron River Drive‘ for free download.
‘Huron River Drive’ is a song of real beauty: clambering jazz percussion, breezy Rhodes twinkles and a generous dose of that all important late-night haze. In the context of Shigeto’s Lineage LP, ‘Huron River Drive’ acts as a recess of sorts, a “brief stop on the roadside of a very personal into the past. But as this single release proves, it also stands alone as a pleasantly understated piece of electronic beauty.”
The singles remixes all come with a distinctly different take: Evenings’ remix bobs along on an off-kilter hip hop rhythm, whilst the Sun Hammer remix strips the track down to its bare bones. The personal highlight arrives on the B-side with another Lineage tune, entitled ‘Field Day’, to which Braille, aka Praveen Sharma—one half of acclaimed New York electronica wizards Sepalcure—adds a contemplative, nostalgic intro and a sumptious house-influenced beat.
