Ta-ku & Wafia’s New Collab, “(M)edian” EP, Is Out Now! EDM Joy Staff 10 August 2016 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Pinterest VKontakte106sharesTa-ku & Wafia – “(m)edian” – Australian producer Ta-ku releases his new collaborative “(m)edian” EP with fellow Aussie and rising singer Wafia today via Future Classic. The EP is a collection of beautifully crafted and highly vulnerable songs where both artists speak candidly on themes of relationships, compromise and sacrifice. It’s available today worldwide on all streaming services and digital retailers, and limited vinyl is on sale here: Median Vinyl. Starting in 2015 and after much collaboration, the duo, Regan Matthews and Wafia Al-Rikabi, released their breakout take on Estelle‘s, ‘American Boy,’ with their aptly titled, ‘American Girl,’ (over 2.3 millions Soundcloud plays) and shortly after debuted their joint live act during Ta-ku‘s MoMA PS1 show (1 of only 2 US shows). This spawned the duo’s “(m)edian” EP sessions in early 2016 that also included Wafia‘s trusted collaborators Thomston and Ben Abraham. After solidifying a bond around their experiences with their fathers, they poured those feelings into “(m)edian,” which resulted in a raw confessional that unearthed a bedrock of complicated emotions traced to heritage, family, and faithfulness. I guess it’s a tribute to unconditional love. Whether that be platonic, romantic, or family. It’s about loving someone unrequitedly. – Wafia Which is never easy. Sometimes with a partner or parent or friend, you might feel like it’s a battle. But it’s a battle because you’re sure it’s the right thing to do. – Ta-ku Following a spree of sold out shows in Europe and Australia, Ta-ku will be kicking off his first ever national headlining US tour featuring Wafia in Los Angeles on September 21 and wrapping at Miami’s III Points festival on October 8. All shows will feature their elaborate new set with a full band and artful original visuals from frequent collaborator, Sam Price. Tickets are on sale now here: Taku Music Tour.
