“Curating music events in 2014 are a demanding challenge. With the large number of music festivals, club tours, promotional gig and what not, music events with a unique concept have become somewhat of rarity these days. In order to give back to the people that support them, Ta-ku has teamed up with his manager Saran and HOWLS partner in crime Kit pop to curate a special event in their hometown of Perth, Australia. Called Handpicked, the event will take place on March 7 (see event flyer below) and will host live sets from Ryan Hemsworth and Flying Lotus. In addition to that, the team has put together a one off 7″ split release containing a track from Ta-ku and Ryan Hemsworth. In our conversation with Ta-ku, the Perth native shares some exclusive details on the background of the event, its unique concept, the Australian music scene and why it is important to support your local values.” – HYPETRAK
