Forward-minded artists typically have a strong connection with other artists that have the same outlook on music. This is the exact scenario with Ta-ku's remix of Guerre's "Tuk", which builds on the original to create an all-encompassing soundscape that we have become used to from Ta-ku through each and every release.
Sharing the Austrialian landscape with Ta-Ku, Sydney's Guerre is a rising experimental producer that is on the verge of releasing his debut album Ex Nihilo, due out July 4 through Yes Please / Remote Control. Filled with buoyant underlying beats, cryptic shifting synths and hushed soulful vocal directions, Guerre's original music is equally melodic and vocal. With already one single out from his debut album (check out "Deatheat" here), Guerre recently released "Tuk" to a positive reception and with Ta-ku on board on remixing duties we can expect the young up-and-comer to ease his way onto the scene.

Ta-Ku seems to have his hands into everything these days, where the heavy-hitting Perth producer can nearly take his pick of what he wants to remix next. His most recent reworking keeps to a level plain, manipulating Guerre's vocals into an indistinguishable instrument. As the remix progresses as does its depth, climaxing at a heavily layered finale of shifting beats, soothing synth work and in-line effects.
