Nine Free Tracks in Honor of J Dilla - Shigeto

Ghostly International artist Shigeto has created a package of nine tracks as a tribute to the late great J Dilla. Dilla, who passed away at the age of 32 on February 10th, 2006, was a pioneering hip hop producer from Detroit whose music crossed genres.

"This set was curated and inspired by J Dilla's constant integration of countless genres and relentless output," says Shigeto. Most of the tracks were made in an hour or less. The best part is, it's all free. You can stream and download Shigeto's Beats 4 Dilla for below.

About Shigeto:

"Shigeto, aka Zach Saignaw, was brought up on a steady diet of Michigan-bred music, as his father spoon-fed him old Motown and jazz records by the crateload. Zach picked up the drums at an early age, spending much of his childhood playing in the Detroit/Ann Arbor music scene. After nearly flunking out of high school—save for his music studies—Zach spent three years studying jazz at the New School in NYC and three more in London, where he began woodshedding, obsessed with learning electronic production. Soon enough, beats materialized, Zach moved to Brooklyn and took up the name Shigeto, and Zach’s peers began to take notice.

Zach’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. The Semi-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."
