Are You Down For Ta-ku and Alina Baraz?

by

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.

FINESE: Brandy – I Wanna Be Down (Remix)

by

Get ready to groove along to this smooth remix of a classic 90s hit, which also happens to be one of my all-time favourite songs. Fact.

Hailing from Brazil, Alisson Fluente aka FINESE adds some subtle flavours of neosoul to the original with some stunning results.

Try and get this remix outta your head! You have been warned.. 🙂

Kaytranada: Australian Tour 2013

by

If you’ve been looking for a new artist or some new music to listen to, you’ve come to the right place.

And that new raw talent comes in the form of Montreal-based Kevin Celestin aka Kaytranada.

With firm roots in hip-hop and heavy electronic influences, he delivers melodic rap and dance grooves that anyone can get down to.

The influential producer is making his way down under for some exclusive shows with fellow Canadian beatmaker Ryan Hemsworth in August.

Can’t wait.

Ta-ku: Love Lost // Soundcloud Community Interview

by

Ta-ku.

I know I’m always posting pieces on this particular producer but that’s because he’s always releasing new music. Or in the case of this week, he released a new song, and an interview that he did with Soundcloud – both of which are free to download.

The Perth beatmaker is really making the rest of us look bad. For those of us (myself included) trying to fit in a creative lifestyle and balance it with whatever else we have going on in our lives, it just seems like Ta-ku does not sleep – at all.

Read on for his latest release and the exclusive interview with Soundcloud.

Capsule Sessions: Ta-ku

by

It’s all happening this Saturday in Sydney!!!
I know the Future Music Festival is on in Randwick but I have more exciting news!

The very talented Ta-ku is heading to Sydney to play a couple of shows and I highly recommend you attend at least one of them to see him perform live and finally (maybe) you’ll understand why his music inspires me so much.

See ya there! 🙂
