We are proud to present to you our first featured artist: Ta-Ku, a recent Redbull Music Academy participant (08 Barcelona) has gone from strength to strength and has released a plethora of beat tapes and with releases set to drop in 2011. This future beat maker is inspired from the likes of Dilla, Häzel, Onra, Fs Green, B. Bravo & Dibiase. He has produced beats internationally for artists like Cyhi The Prynce (G.O.O.D Music), John Robinson, Raashan Ahmad, Outasight, Kid Daytona, Phil Ade, Raaka (Dilated Peoples) and more.
“This ’24’ Beat Tape is a testament to the technology age we live in. Being a big fan of SOULECTION it was crazy to think I could make a beat one night and 2 hours later, email it straight to Joe Kay for it to be played to the world that very same day. Inspired by Joe’s fine selection of music – I decided to see how many beats I could bump out and polish in a 24 hour period.”
Massive Respect to everyone who is on that same vibration and understands the reality behind this musical movement that we are all in.
