As an astute observer of the melodic elements of soul music and the percussive elements of hip-hop, Ta-Ku takes influence from pioneering beatsmiths such as J Dilla, 9th Wonder, and DJ Premier. He also produced high-profile remixes for Flume, Chet Faker, BANKS, Childish Gambino and Justin Timberlake. In 2011, Ta-Ku aspires to take his hip-hop roots and apply them to further experimentation within the electronic and new soul realms.
