  • Shabazz Palaces: Record of the Week

    Posted by on 19 July 2017

    A black and yellow clad prophet once said, "Shabazz Palaces' obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering its own sonic boom." This sonic boom doubled this past week when Ishmael Butler and Tendai "Baba" Maraire released not one, but TWO “monozygotic twin” albums: Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines, described perfectly by Spin Magazine as "astral transportation vehicles."

    If these records are spaceships, Shabazz Palaces' live set in Nashville in January 2015 was history's dopest test launch. If you weren't in our blue-hued sensory deprivation chamber for this superlative performance, we highly suggest you pick up the Live at Third Man Records 12" LP and take it for a spin on your turntable immediately. It's available as our Record of the Week (only $13!) for a limited time in celebration of Shabazz's extraordinary double release, which we also highly suggest you pick up at a record store near you or directly from our friends at Sub Pop. We are all part of the same universe in which these celestial vibrations reverberate and we all better start acting like it. Do it.

  • SHIGETO + ZELOOPERZ = ZGTO

    Posted by on 19 July 2017

    DETROIT-MADE COLLABORATION ZGTO SHARES NEW TRACK "BAND MAN"

    DEBUT LP, A Piece of the Geto, OUT AUGUST 4TH VIA GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL & THIRD MAN RECORDS

    Pre-order the 12" LP on Smoke Marbled Limited Edition Vinyl HERE!

    “It’s a representation of what two brothers from completely different environment can give each other,” explains Shigeto. “The music is freedom for us. It’s a chance to say that all of those rules that you thought existed, don’t exist.”

    In a city famed for its disparate and varied musical excellence, the Detroit-based alignment of feted electronic artist and producer Shigeto aka Zach Saginaw and rapidly rising Bruiser Brigade member ZelooperZ is an entirely natural thing. Introduced by mutual friends in the city, an instant bond was formed, and ZGTO was born. For Shigeto, it is the first time he’s musically stepped out the box of a solo artist and exclusively worked with a vocalist on a project. A Piece Of the Geto is out August 4th on Ghostly International, with a limited edition vinyl pressing by Third Man Records, which can be pre-ordered via the retailer of your choice here.

    Over a two-year period, ZelooperZ and Shigeto would collaborate and experiment, honing their sound without any preconceived notions of its final form or an eventual release. Eventually and inevitably though, a full length record transpired. Following the bugged-out video for the track "Off Dat," today the second ZGTO album track "Band Man" surfaces. Shigeto's minimal production style on the track somehow provides a full backdrop for ZelooperZ's verbal interplay to bounce around in impressive style. Check it out below via Soundcloud.

    A Piece Of The Geto is not exactly like any other album. There is a “less is more” philosophy with the production where the vocals of ZelooperZ are seamlessly interlaced into the fabric of the beats. It’s minimal in a sense, but the emotion felt through the words of ZelooperZ makes the songs as a whole intense and heavy with sentiment.

    “I think our music makes people feel things,” says Shigeto. “To be yourself, to be who you want to be, and to be friends and have love for who you want to have love for.”
