Following his recent performance at the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit, Michigan-native Shigeto shares the first single from his next album, 'No Better Time Than Now,' out August 20 via Ghostly International.

The dreamy 'Detroit Part 1' begins with a strange wind and undergoes a series of even stranger mutations. The neck-snapping beat slips into arcade bleeps; then a dancing marimba melody gives way to superheavy bass thumps. It doesn't stop there.

Shigeto recently shared two more previously unreleased songs via SoundCloud. When his laptop was stolen at a New York show a while back, he claims that he lost the album he was working on. But he was able to recover 'What U Really Needed' and 'R Life,' two gorgeous, sleepy tunes featuring vocals by Brandon Mitchell (Kadence) and Carlos Garcia (LO5). At least he didn't lose these two.

Also, check out Shigeto's live performance at X Avant New Music Fest 2012.
