HYPETRAK Mix: Ta-ku – Drive Slow, Homie

Our compadres at HYPETRAK proudly present the second installment of their new Mix series, this time linking up with Australian DJ Ta-ku for the exclusive. Known for his combination of soul’s melodic elements with that of hip-hop’s percussion and taking inspiration from pioneers like J Dilla, Ta-ku’s 33-minute curation includes laid-back tunes from Harrison Blakoldman, Falcons, Teen Luc’, Esta, and even his own track “Electr(on)ic Relaxation.” The appropriately-titled Drive Slow, Homie is available to download below in its entirety.

How did you approach this mix?
It’s basically a culmination of tracks i love to play in my car. The mix starts on that top down / beach side / hair blowin in the wind / laid back trill tip. Then slowly moves into top up / nightime / grown man dancing like a grown woman / meet you at the spot / jersey jamz tip.

The top three most played songs on Ta-ku’s iTunes are….?
Dimlite – Roo (Dedication)
Foreign Exchange – Come Around
Tribe Called Quest – God Lives Through
