Haven risen to prominence as one of Australia’s most in-demand beatmakers, Ta-ku returns with the new duo project Please Wait, in collaboration with Canadian artist Matt McWaters. To be released on Ta-ku x Jakarta Records’ joint label venture 823, Please Wait share the first single ‘Flight 99 (ft. Masego)’ on November 15th, taken from the upcoming ‘Black & White’ EP.
Please Wait is the culmination of numerous online exchanges and years of sharing voice memos, stems, musical ideas & TikTok links between Ta-ku and Matt McWaters. Their cathartic approach to this body of work has been more about self expression than anything else and has culminated in an EP that covers a range of issues and experiences from different times in their lives.
Ta-ku’s 823 label represents the appreciation for the people/ideas/places that inspire and push us forward. The artwork is shot by the artist themselves and each release has an accompanying photo zine that acts as a visual story to compliment the music being showcased.
Featured on ‘Flight 99’ is Masego – the soul super-heavyweight who needs no introduction, bringing his signature flow and musicianship to the forefront, accompanied by minimal yet vivid production.
‘Flight 99 (ft. Masego)’ is available from November 15th via 823.
