Stream: Ta-ku— “Songs To Break Up To”

Australian producer extraordinaire, Ta-ku, released his highly anticipated album Songs To Break Up To yesterday and in order to whet the palate of his listener’s he’s making a good majority of its songs available for stream on his Bandcamp site where you can also purchase the album.  The album is a sonic journey that evokes many profound and sullen feelings and showcases the producer’s remarkable ability to channel his energy into whatever genre and tempo he desires.

Download: Oisima ft. Annabel Weston—”Everything About Her” (Ta-ku Remix)

Ta-ku takes apart, re-arranges, then puts back together Oisima’s track “Everything About Her” in a way that only he knows how to do so well. “Everything About Her” is the lead-single for Oisima’s album “Nicaragua Nights LP” which features Annabel Weston and is set to drop at an unknown time later this year. Although the original version of the song is more than enjoyable, Ta-ku gives it the drums and melody it needs to stand alone as a beat. A highlight in the track comes about 90 seconds in when the beat shifts dramatically and a funky violin sample begins to play. Listen to Ta-ku’s remix of “Everything About Her” below and download it for free (or for however much you’re willing to give) via the Bancamp page.  Continue reading

Listen: JMSN—”Love & Pain” EP

The lead-single for JMSN’s album Priscilla, which was later accompanied by visuals, is getting the red-carpet treatment with the release of an EP which features nine tracks, each of which is a remix to the original “Love & Pain” song. It’s truly a star-studded event with remixes by big names such as Ta-ku, Kaytranada, Sango, and Dpat, just to mention a few. And you know they’re doing something right when you can listen to the album the whole way through without feeling like you heard the same song twice. Each one of the producers takes a unique approach in the dismantling and reconstruction of the emotionally charged single by JMSN. Check out all the different remixes on the Love & Pain EP below. My favorite—in case you were interested—is the remix by Ta-ku.  Continue reading
