DOWNLOAD: Sufjan Stevens - "Futile Devices" (Shigeto Remix) (MP3)
Last month, Shigeto released the solid Lineage mini-LP, which you can stream in full below (via FADER). He's since given his jazz hop treatment to a remix of Sufjan Stevens' "Futile Devices," successfully making the one Age of Adz track that hearkened back to Sufjan's older work sound like it belongs on the glitchy Age of Adz. You can download that above or stream it below.
Shigeto has a bunch of upcoming dates including a short run with fellow Brooklynite and Ghostly labelmate Mux Mool (whose new album is also streaming in full). He'll follow that run with SXSW, where he's currently got three shows scheduled: the official Ghostly showcase at Club Devile on 3/14 with Tycho, the Abelton showcase at Loft 718/Switched On on 3/14 with Salva, Machinedrum, and Zuzuka Pondersosa, and he will DJ the Surfire Sound Showcase on 3/15. After that he'll embark on a west coast tour with Emancipator. The flier for that tour is below.
Speaking of Salva, his SXSW appearances fall in the middle of his tour with Nguzunguzu. Salva also plays SXSW at Barcelona on 3/18. Nguzunguzu plays the Dummy XO showcase at Barbarella on 3/14 with CFCF, d'Eon, Mirror Mirror, Sleep 8 Over, Korallreven, and Pure X.
