Just last month I wondered out loud on twitter how on earth does Ta-Ku manage to produce so many (great) beats so frequently. One reply I got (by someone I don’t know) suggested he’s got himself a beats sweatshop in the Philipines, with 30 philipino ladies working round the clock in a small room full of MPCs. Funny as that may be, I really cannot find any other explanation. April alone saw the release of two albums by this gifted Australian beat maker - the Day & Night EP and the 24 album via Joe Kay’s Soulection, which, looking at it’s bandcamp page now, I realize had it’s 13 tracks produced in 24 hours (!!!)
As if that was not enough, today Ta-Ku adds 15 more beats to the pile, with his Scraps album release (it’s Free!). These apparently are leftover beats, stuff the dude just had lying around on his HD. You know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s gold.. These may not be the best beats ever, but damn, most beat makers out there would treat these as their best work.
Big up Ta-Ku! Can’t wait till your next release, somewhere round next week I presume.
