Record Review: Ta-ku – DOWHATYOULOVE


Regan Mathews aka Ta-ku has been at it again.

Whether it’s albums, guest mixes or taking a song that already sounds good and remixing it to make it sound even better, the Perth producer has shown that he really can do it all. And it seems as though he is not prepared to slow down or stop anytime soon.

And let’s all hope that he doesn’t.

Check out his debut record DOWHATYOULOVE, which you can purchase now via Jakarta Records.

Ta-ku: Justin Timberlake – Suit & Tie (Remix)


Australian beat maestro Ta-Ku is one producer that very rarely releases a tune that doesn’t make me smile. A few days ago, he released a smooth retwerk on Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Suit & Tie’.

With a soothing piano melody, and a variety of drums and claps remixed through the original, this is a must listen.

Ta-ku – 25 Nights for Nujabes: Night 25


I have to admit, I am super sad that ’25 Nights For Nujabes’ has come to and end.

Night 1 did not seem all that long ago, and yet here we are at the end with Night 25. Ta-ku has created such a beautiful series of songs dedicated to the late Nujabes, that I’m sure both will be remembered for a long time to come.

Ta’Ku’s 25 Nights project is worth of truly inspiring and magical moments.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Ta-ku – 25 Nights for Nujabes: Night 24


The second last Night of the Nujabes dedication series ignites memories within and adds a romantic touch.

Although it is another short piece, the 75 seconds of music that you hear in Night 24 creates a mood that is more than words could possibly describe – but I still tried. 🙂

Ta-ku – 25 Nights for Nujabes: Night 22


Night 22 goes on longer than the other Nights, but that’s for good reason.

Listen and try to decipher what’s lurking between all the different layers within this one.

An old tune – according to its creator – but a new tune, to this writer.

Ta-ku – 25 Nights for Nujabes: Night 20


Night 20 has evoked so many emotions and feelings within that i don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing. Definitely one that I had to listen to a few times over and over, but my feelings towards it were the same – every time.

Not long to go until this project is over. Sad face.

Ta-ku – 25 Nights for Nujabes: Night 17


Night 17 of the Nujabes dedication project brings about deeper emotions and feelings as you listen to it again and again.

Perhaps there is a deeper meaning behind it, or perhaps it’s more beautiful just to leave the track alone.
