Ta-ku began a new tribute series this week, much like his previous ’50 Days for Dilla’ records, but this time, has decided to commemorate the late Japanese virtuoso Nujabes (anagram for his real name Jun Seba).
With a new beat released every night for 25 nights, it [already] has been and will be interesting to see what he comes up with.
And this is only the third night…
Our buddy Ta-ku from Perth is setting forth upon a musical journey and we’re all invited – at least for the next 25 nights.
His latest project, ’25 Nights for Nujabes’, is exactly what the title tells us: a new beat released each night inspired by the late Nujabes for 25 nights.
Are you ready for this?
Before taking a break for the holidays, Ta-ku posted some new music online this week, including this collaborative track by him and US artist Miles Bonny.
A letter to Bonny’s daughter, ‘As You Sleep On My Lap’, is a collaborative effort that results in a timeless and soulful sound.
The cover art on this track is really fitting too. Love it all.
Listen to the track NOW.
This next edition of the ‘After Dark Adventures’ is a pretty special one.
2012 has been a pretty crazy year for The 5 to 9 Life. Not only did I get to do some travelling, but I also was introduced to some new Australian talent – musicians, beatmakers, artists, writers, athletes, and the list goes on.
As a writer, I have been lucky enough to interview some of these people that I’ve been introduced to, and so I was very excited to have recently been given the opportunity to interview the talented Ta-ku.
