Ta-Ku – 50 Days For Dilla Vol. 2 by Chris

Ta-Ku has been kicking-ass after ass with his consistent high-quality beat-releases, and the 50 Days of Dilla project is possibly his most ambitious and successful yet. 50 Days for Dilla vol. 1 was released digitally under HW&W in March with the vinyl following two months later in May as HW&W‘s first official vinyl release. The vinyl sold out within 6 hours of its online release and I managed to bag the second-to-last copy.

Vol. 2 was released online on July 24th and for $10, the remaining 25 tracks of the project can be yours… Or you can hang-out for the vinyl (they’d be crazy not to release one after the last response).

The remaining 25 beats are brief (none break the 3 minute mark, as with the previous volume), however I wouldn’t want to attempt a feat like producing a beat every day for 50 days, so the length is easily forgivable. The quality is of a standard which can be expected from an established producer like Ta-Ku, the drums swing just right, the samples stutter and glitch to neat effect… and the overall feel of the record is something I could have constantly on in the background without a worry. The Dilla inspiration is clear and present- somewhat overpowering in-fact. I would have liked to see a little more deviation and stylistic twist from Ta-Ku considering his past proven skills with glitchy electronics, however this is not the aim of the record- as a tribute album, it works quite fantastically.
