Perth producer Ta-ku has teamed up with Brisbane songstress Wafia for an interesting, stripped back interpretation of Estelle and Kanye West’s hit single “American Boy”. With Ta-ku stepping his own game up with vocal work, this track marks a pretty big leap for the acclaimed beat-maker who is still enjoying accolades from the brilliant EP Songs to Make Up To.
Strings and airy hand-claps characterise this revival, taking out Estelle’s up-beat energy and replacing it with an almost poignant sound, while both Wafia and Ta-ku spin some haunting, echoed vocal work. This is a no brainer for our Single of the Day. Listen below:
