Ta-ku may not be a name that is instantly familiar to a lot of you out there reading my blog. However the Perth based beatmaker has been making moves in the Australian hip-hop scene lately, producing tracks for the likes of Illy and Pegz. Now Ta-ku has released the "Day & Night (EP)" to commemorate the release of the "Day & Night 577" which is a collaboration sneaker between New Balance and Highs & Lows. As the name suggests the EP consists of 7 day and 7 night tracks with each of the beat reflecting the feel of either the AM or the PM. Don't be fooled into thinking that you won't like this album because of the fact that it's an instrumental album and you don't normally listen to this type of music. The "Day & Night EP" is seriously dope, no matter what kind of music you listen to. (That's not to say that I wouldn't like to see what an MC could do with these awesome instrumentals as a base) Check out the stream/download of one of my favourite tracks off of the EP "Ladies Night" below with track-list, artwork, download links and promotional film after the jump.
