"Artists take on pseudonyms for a multitude of reasons, but in Zach Saginaw's case, those reasons run deeper than most. Zach records under the name Shigeto. It's his middle name; it's also his grandfather's name, a tribute to the Japanese branch of Zach's family tree. Shigeto also means "to grow bigger"—appropriate, given Zach's premature birth-weight of less than a pound. Today, Shigeto stands for Zach's vividly beautiful electronic music. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto's music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades." - Ghostly International
"Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett are Beacon, a Greenpoint-based duo steeped in '90s and contemporary R&B, IDM, and bass music. Moodgadget is set to release Beacon's No Body EP, the project's second collection of songs to triangulate those worlds into a sensual, downtempo electronic mesh of lush synths and lusty falsetto. It's How To Dress Well with slightly less BMG CD club R&B, slightly more Warp Records infusion. No Body is lights-down music, ambient-pop for the unrequited, the logical result of years absorbing Boards Of Canada and Postal Service, Matthew Dear and Karin Dreijer Andersson, The-Dream and Ginuwine." - Stereogum
"The Polish-born Brooklyn transplant stitches a flecked tapestry of sounds with Loyal, steeped with intricacies and a restless fury underneath the surface."

"...'Beach Shelter' feeds off the same kind of unsettling ambience as Tim Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972, where the sense of a malevolent force lurking just beneath the surface is prevalent throughout."
"... the perfect winter soundtrack... layering soft synthesizers, indistinct loops, and hazy who-knows-what ..."
