Tashka ‘Taken’ (Dugong Jr Remix)
He’s been using the nation as his stomping ground, and to an incredible amount of positive reception too.
DUGONG JR, one of Melbourne’s latest and greatest and one of our artists to watch for 2015, is back with a new take on one gorgeous single.
TASHKA released her debut single ‘Taken’ a little earlier in the year, and it was her original take on production x songwriting x singing that made it an instant local hit. Dugong Jr has since taken on her track, giving it a huge dose of fishy love.
He’s given it a new breath of pop life, speeding things up a little bit and injecting a modern slice of 8-bit inspired synths into the mix to spice things up a little.
He’s got this real knack for injecting tiny shavings of sounds into this huge soundscape, each one contributing immensely to the overall sound. Although this one began as a gorgeous slice of electro-pop, Dugong Jr’s made it all his own with an incredibly keen eye for what makes up a cool dance track.
