Stasera Milano è tutta al concerto di Tyler, The Creator e cricca (ti abbiamo regalato due biglietti per andarci gratis, ricordi?), e dagli iPod in Ticinese non esce che del rapster. Ho detto rapster? Vado a scaricarmi gratis da DLSO l’ultimo album di Ta-Ku e Raashan Ahmad per capire di che cazzo sto parlando. Soul music bless you.
Qui leggi com’è nata l’idea alla base di questo lavoro, registrato durante il tour australiano di Raashan Ahmad, e regalatoci oggi dall’etichetta berlinese Jakarta Records:
“ Raashan Ahmad was on a euro tour some weeks ago and during his stop in Berlin we were talking music over dinner. I told Raashan that we are about to release an album with Ta-ku (which has happened in the meantime, check out the “DOWHATYOULOVE” album) and he asked me whether I knew that he recorded a full album with him some time ago during his last australian tour. No, I didn’t know that and getting my hand on the album turned out to be not too easy as it couldn’t be located for quite a while. In the end Raashan found it on an old hard drive and I was a fan of the album instantly. It’s raw hip hop in the truest sense. None of the songs are longer then 3 minutes, quite some are around the 2 minute mark. Nothing but dope beats and raps with some unreleased Ta-ku instrumentals sprinkled in between.”
