A collaborator of the highest order, Tuka has worked and recorded with Chasm, Dialectrix, Two Toes and The Tongue. But for his solo debut, Tuka really has wholeheartedly taken on the ‘solo’ mantle, with only two guests on the entire album – Tenth Dan and Radical Son – and with even the cover art being hand drawn by the Sydney MC.
Production comes from Mike Slik, Marz1, DJ Morgs, Brokn, Caustic and Tuka himself.
Tuka’s debut solo set eschews easy comparison and overtly big singles, instead opting for cerebral Jazz and Dub influenced head nodders that tip their hat to producers and projects like early RJD2, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Soul Assasins Volume 1 or Nightmares On Wax. His approach is both highly melodic and rhythmic in nature, and freestyle comes as naturally as composition - he regularly performs entirely improvised sets.
