I was first introduced to this guy surfing the web and found that he produced a series of beats that were a tribute to Nujabes, and instantly I fell in love. Ta-Ku is a self-taught producer from Perth, Australia. His style revolves around progessive beats with aesthetic sounds familiar to J Dilla and 9th Wonder. While I have not been able to see him live yet, I hope to catch him if he decides to visit the Bay Area. Check out his work if you’re into soul grooves, progressive production, and electronic hip-hop fusion.
