Los Angeles based vocalist/producer Saigo embraces the fluidity of the nascent future-soul genre, interlacing syrupy groove, electronic textures, and a diverse palette of beats. Saigo shares lyrical insights from romance to philosophy, distilling complexity and conflict into eccentric sonic tapestry. At the center of it all is a voice that is at once sensitive, inquisitive, and daring.
His breakout single, “The Other”, successfully captured the attention of the R&B/beats community, garnering recognition from Pigeons and Planes as one of their “Best New Artists”, airplay on BBC Radio, and placement on Spotify’s own “Alternative R&B” playlist.
His ongoing collaborations with producer Kan Wakan reached #1 on Hype Machine and entered BBC and KCRW rotation with the single “Still Feather”.
