Zgto

Producer Shigeto and rapper ZelooperZ – a member of Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade – are set to release their first album as Zgto, ‘A Piece Of Geto’, on 22 Aug.

It’s probably a slightly unlikely pairing, but that’s precisely what attracted them to the idea of collaborating. ZelooperZ tones down his usually aggressive approach, while Shigeto slides his usually fairly delicate sound across to meet him.

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

Zelooper adds: “It’s a piece from him and it’s a piece from me. It’s a piece from both of us. The whole process has been that. We are just putting in our pieces. It’s like a puzzle that was never supposed to fit together. It looks crazy but the vibe is fun”.

The pair released the first single from the album, ‘Off Dat’, last month. Now they follow it up with ‘Band Man’, which delves further into the collaboration. Listen here:
