I loved Songs to Break Up To – it’s what got me into Ta-ku. After that EP I discovered his 50 Days for Dilla spiel as well as some of Ta-ku’s most amazing radio mixes and remixes. In his new follow up EP, this time we’re making up in the aptly named Songs to Make Up To. To tease the EP, Ta-ku has released a single, which features JMSN and Sango.
Hear the new single, ‘Love Again’:
I wasn’t particularly moved by the new song – I thought it was underwhelming, a bit distant from the cool beats off Songs to Break Up to. The vocals seemed disinteresting and generic. Surely I’ll have to go back later and listen to this tune again, I’m in a very non-chill mood today. Mood affects the way people hear music; Ta-ku definitely sits on the calmer side of music. I like to listen to Ta-ku on my way to class or while doing homework.
I’m more excited about what this new EP will sound like as a whole rather than ‘Love Again’ as a standalone song. I’m not predicting a ‘Songs to Break Up To 2’ from a self-proclaimed genre-killer such as Ta-ku, and we can definitely be ready to listen to some decent music. Ta-ku seems to pour a large amount of soul into his productions, and I expect Songs to Make Up To to be on the same page.
