Rock The Remix

The recent ‘Lineage’ mini-album on Ghostly by Zach Saginaw better known as Shigeto that references both his personal and musical ancestry, brings in elements of jazz, funk, hip hop, and folk to the eight tracks of intricately woven, deeply textured instrumental beat music. With yesterday marking what would have been the birthday of James Yancey aka J Dilla fresh in his mind, the Detroit born producer put together this remix as a nod to his hometown’s musical heritage. As he explains ‘Today was super inspiring. Everybody was posting old Jay Dee tracks and videos…telling stories and paying their respects…I was feeling the vibes and made this – inspired by Jay Dee of course and Aaliyah, another incredible Detroit talent that we lost way too soon’.
