Ghostly International always wows us with their beautiful releases; Shigeto is definitely one of our favorites of the label, having first snared our ears with his 2010 debut Full Circle. A complex blend of field recordings and thick synths, it’s easily one of the more intriguing IDM albums we’ve heard in a long time. His latest release is the 12″ mini-LP Lineage, which focuses closely on the producer’s relationship with his family connections. This spaced-out vintage video, created from footage taken from space shuttles, captures the atmospheric mood of the fourth track ‘Soaring’ nicely. Watch it below.
