TALI ‘Eye On You’

Written by on October 9, 2018

This week’s Local Eyes is from New Zealand’s First Lady of Drum n Bass Tali. Taken from her first DnB album in over seven years Eye On You’ is the lead track from ‘Love & Migration’ out on October 26th.

After leaving NZ in 2001 for the UK, Tali signed to Full Cycle Records and promptly released a UK top 40 hit with ‘Lyric On My Lip’.  A bouncy sung/rapped jungle/Drum n Bass roller it was her first breakout song, and helped pave the way not only for female DnB MC’s but arguably for some of New Zealand’s most well known respected Drum n Bass acts.

Love & Migration features collaborations with Vienna’s powerhouse producer duo – Roygreen and Protone, ‘The Bard of Manchester’ MC DRS, Spearhead Recordings duo – The Vanguard Project, Hospital’s freshest new MC/Vocalist Degs, one of Liquid DnB’s most exciting producers right now – SATL and New Zealand’s own Kings of Halftime and Dubstep –TRUTH amongst others. Love & Migration is an album full of moody, cinematic production, with lush vocal features from Georgie FisherBlakeDegs and RosaDub, and of course steering it all – Tali, with her, soulful husky voice alternating between unassuming almost whispered raps on her tracks ‘Language‘ and ‘Sonder‘, to soaring uplifting storytelling on tracks like ‘Situations‘, ‘Silhouettes‘ and ‘Indigo Drive‘.
