Tanoki Pushes The Envelope With "It Has Begun"
A fresh release from Tanoki brings a unique and colorful blend of genres taking hip hop and rap and electro and touching on jungle based beats but with a great feel for classic chill to go along with guitars and synths that float through the songs atmosphere at all times.
"It Has Begun" takes a massively colorful array of textures and soundscapes that utilize instrumentation both natural and digital to build the tension that the vocals and lyrics bring.
The song begs the question "what does the future hold for our innovation". It's premise is deepening and almost existential and brings upon us thoughts of how our children will affect the future and how our generation is their future now.
Maybe one of our children will be the one to bring salvation.
It's a conscious hip hop track that really gets the brain going and the music really takes that whole aspect and takes it to a next level as well.
Everything about this track pushes the envelope just enough to really grab your attention and hold it there.
The song is lush with sounds, beautifully woven, and really has a greater meaning and purpose behind it.
None of this is beneath a surface but right in front of your face and in your ears at the top layer.
It all comes through with a certain power and makes you crave more from Tanoki for sure.
"It Has Begun" follows a few other singles previously released and each one takes a different turn but sticks to the innovative almost future and classic blend of sound and lyrics.
Tanoki is from another place all together and we're glad that's so. We need music like this to shed some light on things that are more important. To ask more important questions.
To listen to music that creates a different place for you to step into for a while.
