SMALL TALK: Ta-kuPosted By Rebecca Florence | 22-Aug-2012
If you, like us, are counting down the days until Ta-ku’s latest EP RE ϟ TWERK drops, we’ve asked him to give us some Small Talk in anticipation.
From the impressive project of 50 Days For Dilla, to the New York inspired vibes of his LateNYC EP, and even his Scraps volumes are brilliant, Ta-ku has raised the bar for Australian instrumental hip-hop, and his latest EP sounds like nothing short of genius.
My name is… Regan aka Reggie aka Ta-ku
