They harness live vocals to give you a performance that is unique in its own.

Bio coming soon!


Presented by:  The Seraphine Collective





Electronic music producer and drummer Zachary Shigeto Saginaw, aka Shigeto, was exposed to jazz and R&B through his father’s record collection. While still a youngster living in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he picked up the drums and eventually integrated himself in the Detroit area music scene. Several years later, after attending New York City’s New School and living in London, England, he started working on electronic music. Based in Brooklyn, he linked with the Ghostly International-affiliated Moodgadget label and issued EPs with A Setting Sun, and as Shigeto and Frank Omura. His first album as Shigeto, however, was released on Ghostly — a label that had inspired him since its early-2000s inception. Full Circle, a bright and knotty cross-section of IDM, ambient techno, left-field hip-hop, and post-dubstep, was released in November 2010. It was around this time that Saginaw joined School of Seven Bells on tour as the band’s drummer. Saginaw’s productions became increasingly melodic, graceful, and jazz-inflected on his additional Ghostly releases, including 2012’s Lineage and the following year’s No Better Time Than Now. In 2015, Shigeto collaborated with jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas on the electro-acoustic album High Risk, appeared on Heathered Pearls’ Body Complex, and released his own Intermission, a modest six-track EP.


Charles Trees

Charles Trees has been DJing in Michigan and worldwide for the last 20 years while also releasing his own unique blend of jazz, techno and hiphop music. Vice New’s Thump had this to say about Trees 2014 release: “Drawing on acidic jazz rhythms and afrobeat, Trees’s Rootwork EP is serving all the rough edges you need…a collage of high fidelity sampledelia that floats over phat, funky grooves…and it’s great.” His latest release will be out in October 2017 on Vanity Press Records out of Detroit.


Ryan Dahl

Ryan Dahl is the son of the spiritual groove entity from outer space currently residing in Detroit, Michigan. In his free time, he enjoys contemplating the quantum space continuum, watching his collection of Roseanne season 4, and of course mixing and producing music. His music background started in his early years of his life playing in orchestra and quickly matured to styles such as Blues, Reggae, Jazz and then in the 2000s, Techno. A frequent proponent and thrower of parties in Detroit, Ryan Dahl runs his party Wu that takes people to to the outer limits of space and beyond.
