Full item details here.


The highly anticipated debut solo album from former Salmonella Dub frontman Tiki Taane! PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE is an album that is musically fearless, intensely personal & culturally significant. It is the culmination of a musical journey that has already spanned more than a decade.

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.

Widely renowned as one of Aotearoa NZ’s most talented musicians, producers, sound engineers & vocalists, the depth of Taane’s musical knowledge becomes obvious in an album enriched by contrast & diversity. It is dark yet enlightening, distorted but lush, electronic & organic, grounding though still uplifting. Driven by a desire to truly understand himself & his history, Taane has put everything on the line to create a piece of art that is meaningful & challenging. “I am motivated & inspired by all who have come before me, all who I walk with today, & all who will follow,” he says. “Being of Maori & 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.”

Guest vocalists include Taane’s father Uekaha Taanetinorau & grandmother Inuwai, as well as PDigsss (Shapeshifter), Julia Deans (Fur Patrol), Celia Church & Zaniah Carigiet. In addition, the production talents of P-Money, Sean Deans & Motive represent a handful of collaborations with some of Tiki’s closest friends.
