Listing Detail Tabs

2007 album by Christchurch’s King of the Dubs, Tiki Taane. The solo debut for the ex Salmonella Dub man, it featured the megahit (and modern day Kiwi classic) “Always On My Mind”. Tiki described the album’s style as “punk dub meets tangatawhenua”.

Highly anticipated 2007 debut solo album from former Salmonella Dub frontman, Tiki Taane, featuring the singles "Tangaroa" and "Now This Is It".
The raw fusion of Tiki's trademark bass-heavy production with traditional Maori instrumentation characterises the album. "It's like punk dub meets tangatawhenua," Taane states matter-of-factly. This is strikingly evident in the first single Tangaroa, as well as the haunting title track. is as much about honouring Taane's Maori ancestry as it is about pushing musical boundaries and exploring the realms of sound.

Widely renowned as one of Aotearoa NZ's most talented musicians, producers, sound engineers and vocalists, the depth of Taane's musical knowledge becomes obvious in an album enriched by contrast and diversity. It is dark yet enlightening, distorted but lush, electronic and organic, grounding though still uplifting. Driven by a desire to truly understand himself and his history, Taane has put everything on the line to create a piece of art that is meaningful and challenging.

"I am motivated and inspired by all who have come before me, all who I walk with today and all who will follow," he says. "Being of Maori and Pakeha descent has also been a huge influence. To feel as though I have walked between two worlds, yet struggled to belong to either, has allowed me the freedom to forge my own path."

CD, booklet and jewel case are in excellent condition.
