New Shigge: “Trapa”

Even Shigge at a more relaxed pace turns wonky really fast. New single “Trapa” finds the Fukuoka producer leaning towards warmer climes, and the opening passage of this song goes all in on piano twinkles and bongo hits, followed by slightly warped (but hardly jarring) vocal samples. So far, so chill. But then everything gets tipsy, but in a way where the generally easy-going vibe isn’t disrupted, just blurred significantly. And the song goes from there, working in more voices and guitar to create a very Yesterday Once More take on summer electronic. “Cabos” is a bit more disorienting, but with enough flashes of seaside lounge sounds to make the moments everything burbles away a touch more tense. Get it here, or listen below.
