Local producer Ta-ku has been releasing a solid stream of quality beats for the past few years, with his production appearing on projects for the likes of Illy and Cyhi Da Prynce, this man is defintiely one to watch. Earlier this year he decided to pay tribute to one of the most revered and loved producers in hip-hop, J Dilla by releasing a new beat each day for 50 days straight. The result was the very dope 50 Days for Dilla. Now Ta-ku has just released volume 2 (Days 26-50) digitally for the masses. In the project Ta-ku mixes "signature Dilla-esque drum swings, melodic transitions, and creative sampling in his tribute to the late producer". This project has definitely been one of my highlights of 2012 thus far and volume 1 was playing non-stop in my car for weeks on end. These are the perfect laid back beats to work, chill or party to and you don't have to necessarily like hip-hop or have heard much Dilla music before to appreciate the time and effort that has gone into this project. This is a must listen! If you like what you hear, show your support, purchase the music and support a dope local producer! A vinyl release of volume 2 is not too far away so stay tuned to the Huh What and Where website for all the vinyl release details. Stream/purchase volume 2 after the jump and if you missed out on the equally dope volume 1 I've also included the purchase link.
