Are You Down For Ta-ku and Alina Baraz?


Perth’s legendary artist/producer/photographer/creative extraordinaire Ta-ku has been putting together impressively emotionally themed works for some time, and his most recent one, “Songs To Make Up To”, had on it an entire tracklist of tunes evoking all of the emotions you’d expect a work with that title to have.

Unfortunately, we were without one particular cut from the standard body of tracks, and it might be the best one of them all.

Check out the Spotify-exclusive ‘Down For You’ featuring Alina Baraz; co-produced by Atu.

Alina Baraz: Paradise


Here at The 5 to 9 Life, I’m always on the hunt for new music but I prefer to look for the underground stuff that no-one is hearing or that one song that only a handful know about. None of that mainstream music you hear every hour on the radio these days.

Hip hop artist Atmosphere said it perfectly when he rapped ‘I’d rather kill the radio and listen to the rain hit’ on his track, Modern Man’s Hustle. This is pretty much how I feel about the state of music on the radio these days.

But it’s nice to know that there are platforms like Soundcloud to really show you what’s GOOD out there.
