  • Detroit electronic musician Shigeto caught up with Boise Weekly following his March 23 performance at China Blue.

Detroit musician Zachary Saginaw, better known by his stage name Shigeto, wrapped audiences up in his March 23 performance at China Blue. And he did it on two hours of sleep.

Hammering at a drum set and an assortment of synthesizers, Shigeto coaxed myriad competing sounds into harmony. After his sweat-drenched set, Saginaw caught up with Boise Weekly in an alleyway off Sixth Street. Having recently dropped a new mixtape, Beats 4 Dilla, Saginaw told BW why he chose to dedicate those tracks to late Motor City rapper J. Dilla.
