It's about connectivity, really,” says Regan Mathews, of the very first Qrates compilation, curated by the Perth-based producer and featuring many of his friends, collaborators and contemporaries. Better known as Ta-ku, the musician has been making heart-rending instrumental hip hop himself for long enough to know what a good artist sounds like. So much so, that a lot of them are his friends. “Nearly everyone on the record are people that I've had existing relationships with, whom I have known for a really long time, in the music industry and on a personal level, as well,” he says. “They’re people that I really admire—not only in their music but also as people.”

The outcome of this carefully selected mix is nine tracks of soulful funk, RnB and nu-jazz that thaws through icy electronic beats and moments of smooth dub and ambient by Jarreau Vandal, Jael and Sango—as well as regular Ta-ku collaborators like Wafia, Masego and Matt McWaters. Even its romantic pastel-pink and grey cover art comes from within this trusted global network, its glowing, flowery silhouette coming from none other than Samuel Burgess Johnson. Not only is the London-based designer behind releases by pop icons like Tove Lo, The 1975 and Usher, but he's also responsible for the baroque beauty of Ta-ku's own 2014 album Songs to Break Up To. Each contributor marks their own point across the geographical and cultural map, while sharing a common experience as digital natives. That experience with growing up online hasn’t stopped artists like DOT and Kerri from appreciating a classic format though, with many of the artists featured on In Good Hands, growing up with cassettes and vinyl and a lingering appreciation for them.
