Revered progressive house tastemaker Shingo Nakamura releases his highly anticipated third album, ‘Glow,’ on Monstercat.
The project arrives with 11 original songs and nine extended mixes, embodying the weightless sound design and euphoric melodies that Shingo is lauded for.
Since launching Monstercat’s February acquisition of Silk Music with his widely praised title track, “Glow,” the Japanese producer has released two additional tunes, including the transportive track, “Phenomena,” and last month’s collaboration with Stendahl, “Tribute, Chapter III.” Today’s standout single, “Darling Midnight” with Brandon Mignacca, is a stunning representation of the album’s uplifting nature and sonic complexities, showcasing the effortless synergy between both artists.
Shingo shares, “It took about five years to complete the album and that time was very difficult for me, especially with the recent pandemic. But I was able to endure because I love making music. As the word “glow” implies, I think the songs are designed to gently illuminate and encourage the listener.”
Shingo has made his mark as one of the most played progressive house acts on YouTube, collecting over 10 Million views of his ‘Best of Shingo Nakamura’ series alone.
His distinct blend of textural house and classical compositions has cemented him as a leading tastemaker in Tokyo’s burgeoning electronic scene. Taking his prolific sound around the world, he’s headlined venues from the legendary Womb nightclub to the storied Audio SF.
Throughout his decade-long career, Shingo has been supported by household names like Armin van Buuren, Ilan Bluestone, BT, Solarstone, and more, in addition to boasting collaborations with scene shapers like Jody Wisternoff and Anjuna’s James Grant.
