Future Classic: Ta-ku “25 Nights for Nujabes”
Ta-ku is truly one of the most talented and prolific new producers out there but not only that, the guy is mad generous too.
Last year the Australian producer started a project that was pretty ambitious: a 50 day tribute to the late J Dilla, one production per day, an he actually pulled it off. If you like Ta-ku, we strongly suggest you check out the exclusive mix he did for us a few months back.
This time he’s embarking on another project, for another producer gone too soon. This is 25 Nights For Nujabes.
“A beat a night for 25 nights in dedication to Seba Jun.”
