This is that future bass. This project is what progressive music is all about. Artist collective Soulection partnered with clothing brand Stussy to put together a compilation that reflects the cultures of both companies and “brings visibility to the future sound.” Twenty different artists are showcased on this compilation; synths, a little reggae-dub, ambient, bass, and hip-hop are just some of the flavors you’ll get a taste of. While all the artists have their own unique style, they each possess an ultra chill ambient vibe to give the compilation the cohesive flow that makes it so pleasing to listen to. Perfect for wake ‘n bake, summertime cruisin, and relaxation. On the mix you’ll find Red Bull Music Academy grad Ta-ku, Mr. Carmack, Jarreau Vandal (who did an ultra jazzy remix of G-Eazy’s Let’s Get Lost), Sango, GoldLink, along with even more underground gems that you may not have heard of before. Hop on that future bass wave and coast. You can download the compilation for free from Bandcamp or donate a few dollars if you’re feeling generous.

I know most of you are probably music savvy enough to have heard Gambino’s new album ‘Because The Internet..’ that dropped last month. Well I slept on this official free remix from Ta-ku, so without further ado here’s his take of my favorite track from the album ‘Telegraph Ave’.

Although I wouldn’t describe myself as a Closet Drake Fan, I have to say I’m feeling every production aspect of this new release. With all sorts of hype surrounding Drake and his new album dropping next month, Ta-ku released this edit with great timing. The track starts out with the familiar intro of one of Drake’s older songs “Over.” Then Ta-Ku lays down a drumkit, synth, and hits us with the dirtiest bass-heavy drop. Slightly chopped with a trappy beat, Ta Ku gives new life to this old favorite. Looking forward to what comes next from this self-proclaimed genre-killer. Discover more Ta-ku beats on his soundcloud.
