“The Various Assets – Not For Sale compilation holds some of the wild juxtapositions and magical moments that happened when people from all corners of the world found companions in sound – and discovered they spoke a similar language despite contrasting backgrounds and methodologies.
Chances are you might hear some of these artists playing a festival or two this year, or dropping an EP that turns your dance floor upside down. If that’s the case, reset your compass points, and join us en route to who knows where. Check the tracklist and download the compilation below. Included in the download is a PDF booklet with the stories behind the songs.”

Having amassed an intimidating body of work, spearheaded by his Bandcamp charting release Re-Twerk, Perth’s Ta-Ku is showing no signs of slowing down with co-signs from Gaslamp Killer, Salva, Baauer, Shigeto, Flosstradamus, Nina Las Vegas, triple j Next Crop and Nosaj Thing to name a few. From an early output of dusty beat samples this disciple of The Ummah can cut and chop hip-hop beats in his sleep – but it’s his current material that shows a dancefloor edge not yet heard from the producer. This third video installment for the New Era Producers series provides an insight into the creative workings of one of Australia’s most promising music makers whilst also discovering the thought process that went into the design of Ta-Ku’s New Era 5 Panel cap, created in collaboration with Well Dressed Vandals.
