Ta-ku pays tribute to hip-hop's finest with a beat a day for 50 days
Our man Reggie ‘Ta-ku’ Matthews – the producer that honoured us with our first Brainer mix – has just unleashed Vol. 1 of his latest project: 50 Days For Dilla. While he may be one of the most prolific beatsmiths making music at the moment, it’s safe to say that crafting a beat a day – for 50 days – is an incredible achievement. But he done did it in tribute to the legendary Jay Dee, and as you’d expect, 50 Days For Dilla is chock full of pompous, dope beats, gorgeous soul samples and chopped up strings – all tied together by that signature Ta-ku swagger. Instrumental hip-hop doesn’t get better – have a listen after the jump.
