HEART BEAT SPECIAL PREVIEW 

This FRIDAY  Heart Beat Presents SIGHA –  

NEWS: Early this year ‘Metabolism’ was conceived on Kriz! Token label. The LP marks James Shaw’s third release on our favorite Token label, following his singles Christ Figures and Our Father. Metabolism represents an arrival: the artist offers his definitive statement on a production aesthetic that has been in development over the last few years.

Shaw’s work as Sigha has always placed the listener at a centrifugal point that invites a clandestine hypnosis rather than an abject hysteria. Cavernous low ends fixed firmly and effectively in a mono space tether the music to the body, while exquisitely executed white noise patterns and crystalline pads warp and hiss around the stereo environment. This keen ear for distinction within the frequency spectrum acts as the central theme on the LP.

►SIGHA [aka – James Shaw] [aka – A Vision of Love = Sigha Live Show] LABELOWNER OF Our Circula Sound// RECORDING ARTIST ON Avian, Token, Blueprint CLR hotflush and many more) Sigha has been exploring the relationship between functionality & art in the Techno genre for some time now. James Shaw emerged out of London’s burgeoning post-Dubstep scene in 2009, a series of carefully executed releases offering early insight into the producer’s long-lasting preoccupation with intricate sound design & rich tonal finish.

At the heart of the artist’s contemporary work is the notion of process – of humanistic development & ritual catharsis through repetition. A binding component of Shaw’s artistic premise is an arcane spirituality – the restrained maximalism & cavernous depth of recent dance floor material draws as much from traditional places of worship as it does from the heady, Brutalist architecture of Europe’s finest clubbing spaces. Fixed at the base by booming low end, warping white noise signals pitch & bend about the sonic periphery and the rising, emotive leads that have since become a hallmark of his work, lift the music above & beyond the sum of its parts.
