Ta-ku: Long Time No See Ft. Atu

by

Two of my favourite producers from the Soulection roster – Ta-ku and Atu – have teamed up once again on ‘Long Time No See’, a track featured on Ta-ku’s much-anticipated new EP, Songs To Make Up To.

Hit the link to listen to the dreamy track which provides a good indication of what the rest of the record might sound like.

Songs To Make Up To drops worldwide on June 12.

Guilty Simpson and Katalyst Australian Tour

by

For years Guilty Simpson has been a rock on the Detroit hip-hop circuit alongside those such as J Dilla, Slum Village, Eminem (whom Guilty still calls “Marshall”) & D12, Obie Trice, Proof, Phat Kat and Black Milk. Since the early 00’s, Guilty has emerged as a sound to be reckoned and an MC to keep on your radar.

Sydney based Katalyst has been behind the scenes of the music industry for years, producing for others since the mid-90s; and every one of his solo releases has earnt him an ARIA nomination in Australia, establishing him with a strong fan base worldwide.

Detroit MC Guilty Simpson and Sydney DJ / Producer Katalyst first linked up to work on the Quakers album with Geoff Barrow for Stones Throw Records. It was a good match and not long after Stones Throw approached Katalyst to do more work with Guilty.

Since then, they have both been cooking up something special in the lab with a collaborative record, due for release in 2015. Whilst no-one knows for sure what exactly they’ve been working on, you can get a sneak peek if you grab a ticket to one of their shows on this national tour.
