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]

HOWLS X NOAH BREAKFAST – 004

This collaboration comes courtesy of producer Noah Breakfast collaborating with Howls (a collaborative project between collaberators Ta-Ku and Kit Pop).  Sorry.  Anyway, this is a brilliantly euphoric Trap-inspired track with plenty of hand-claps, bass, and those little stoppy bits that put a huge smile on your face.  We have to shout out California label ‘Huh…
