[MP3 + Music Video] Listen to Tracks from Tuku’s Moonday Sessions: The Black Mixtape

Tuku's Moonday Sessions: The Black Mixtape produced by Gigz The Unknown Producer

I’m sightly biased here as Tuku is an old friend of mine, but this is pretty good stuff, well worth your time. Soulful, jazzy vocals over bangin’, classic hip hop production from Dr. Dre, Dilla, Madlib, 9th Wonder, Flying Lotus, Kev Brown etc. reinterpolated by the very underrated T.dot beatsmith, Gigz The Unknown Producer. Toronto heads will get this reference point, think a slightly more mature, spiritually-centered version of Shi Wisdom for a very rough sense of what the entire Moonday album sounds like from a vocal point of view.
