Shigeto at the Electric Owl in Vancouver Saturday night. Also on the bill: Beacon, a Brooklyn-based duo composed of Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett, and Phaeleh, aka Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ Matt Preston.

Shigeto is the nom de plume of Zach Saginaw. “Shigeto” is Saginaw’s middle name.

According to a bio on Ghostly International, the Brooklyn-based electro artist’s “body of work has grown over the last few years to the tune of several EPs on Moodgadget as Shigeto and with A Setting Sun, a pair of EPs under the alias Frank Omura (another family-name reference), and remixes for Worst Friends, Praveen & Benoit, Tycho, Mux Mool, Charles Trees, A Setting Sun, Beautiful Bells, Shlohmo, and more.

“TheSemi-Circle EP and What We Held Onto EP were his first releases with Ghostly International in the spring of 2010. These were followed quickly by the well-received full-length Full Circle and Full Circle Remixes in late 2010 and early 2011 respectively. These releases are nominally indebted to instrumental hip-hop but, like Zach, straddling many worlds at once. Cool shades of ambient music, stuttering early IDM, dubstep sub-bass, and jazz melodicism color Shigeto’s palette, which he wields with a painterly attention to detail.”
