TA-KU & WAFIA – LOVE SOMEBODY

With the release of their collaborative ‘(m)edian EP’ pushed back until August 5, Perth producer Ta-ku and Brisbane vocalist Wafia drop another track from the project to follow ‘Meet In The Middle‘.  Although Ta-ku is more than capable of delivering something more upbeat, the track is a decidedly sombre one; concerned with the all-consuming nature of love; their respectively…

TA-KU & WAFIA – MEET IN THE MIDDLE

Perth producer Ta-ku teams up with Brisbane vocalist Wafia for ‘Meet In The Middle’, the first release from their collaborative ‘(m)edian’ EP, out on Future Classic on June 24th.

GALLANT – WEIGHT IN GOLD [TA-KU REMIX]

Gallant’s ‘Weight In Gold‘ was premiered by Zane Lowe on Apple Music earlier this month, and it hasn’t taken LA beatmaker Ta-ku long to get his hands on the track.  The ballad was based around some lofty synths from producer Stint, which Ta-ku offsets with some darker bass tones on the remix, amping up the track’s…

TA-KU – SONGS TO MAKE UP TO

Following 2013’s ‘Songs To Break Up To‘, Ta-ku releases its reconciliatory counterpart ‘Songs To Make Up To’.  It’s a brilliantly smooth, electronic collection of mellow beats to get you and bae back on track.  The whole EP clearly demonstrates the Aussie beatmaker’s sophisticated style, but none of the seven tracks stand out quite as much as ‘Love…

TA-KU – LOVE AGAIN [FT. JMSN & SANGO]

Taken from his upcoming ‘Songs To Make Up To’ EP [June 12], Australian producer Ta-ku releases the sublime ‘Love Again’.  Featuring JMSN and fellow producer Sango [with whom Ta-ku is no stranger to collaboration] the track is based around a beautiful piano chord progression, gentle vocals from JMSN and pillowy soft percussion, the track certainly does justice to…

FLUME – LEFT ALONE FT. CHET FAKER [GRAVES & TA-KU REMIX]

Australian producer Ta-Ku already remixed Flume & Chet Faker’s ‘Left Alone’, but he’s decided to recruit Atlanta-based Gravez to “invent the re-remix” for a new version of the track.  This time, things are stripped back, slowed down to a crawl, and bassed up.  The pair also work in a little of recent Lapalux single ‘Closure‘…
