As Tatanka prepares for their first national tour, hitting the road with Fortunate Youth, they’ve been in the studio working on a new EP. As a treat, we have a FREE song from the new EP to give away for FREE, this week only. Plus their summer tour dates & more. Lets check it out…
As is the case with most MP3 Leaks, we love to hear the artists perspective on the song, along with the background on the track to fully understand and grasp the meaning of the song. Here’s what Tatanka had to say in regards to the song “Keep Your Cool Dub”. Enjoy the background while you listen to the new songs…
“This is a dub version that will be released on our upcoming EP. The album is being produced by BlackPanther, J Dubby and Tatanka at Scanhope Sound in Colorado. We are trying to get the EP out asap but do not have a release date yet. It is going to be 6 or 7 new tracks that we are very excited about”
Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a trio specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, and electro soundscapes. Heavy Caribbean drum and bass grooves provide the pulse for the party as the music invites you to get down and dirty. Tatanka has shared the stage with many major national and international acts that include but are not limited to: Eoto, Slightly Stoopid, The Motet, Easy Star All-Stars, The Black Seeds, John Brown’s Body, The Expendables, Groundation, Iration, Passafire and more. The Tatanka trio continues to push they’re sound to the next level.
On June 21st Fortunate youth will meet up with Denver’s dub trio, Tatanka, at the Slo Brew in San Luis Obispo, CA. From there, they take the show nationwide! The Summer of Love Tour will loop around the nation before concluding, like every summer tour should end, at a Las Vegas Pool Party!
To help fund their tour, Tatanka has created a Kickstarter Page to accept donations that will further enable the group to take their show on the road with Fortunate Youth this summer. Going on tour can be very expensive with everything from travel to food, room & board. Not to mention maintenance on the tour van. With $1.00 minimum donations, you can contribute to Tatanka’s first national tour by clicking HERE
