Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a quartet specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, dancehall, 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. In March of 2010, this group of Denver dub samurais released their first studio E.P. entitled Sounds in Technicolor. Sounds in Technicolor has reached over 7,000 downloads through Tatanka’s website and social networking sites. Their music has been dubbed as drum and bass music for a new generation, a twist on new and old reggae riddim’s, and an instant classic. The pulsing basslines provided by Tatanka’s Malonestar seem to rock the mind into trance while Champian’s guitar work and The Mexico’s hi-hat, snare and kick drum 4/4 playing styles pepper over the top of the album’s four track’s almost flawlessly.
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. Tatanka continues to push their sound to the next level. Dub Rock Syndicate recently gave the boys the title “the up and coming kings of dubtronic”. Tatanka has now been touring for over three years and will continue to do so. CHAMPIAN, MALONE★, NASTY NATE, and THE MEXICO are all determined to bring the dub madness to a city near you
