The Rocky Mountain quartet known as Tatanka meshes progressive reggae with instrumental dubstep and high-quality dance music. Needless to say, Tatanka knows how to make the crowd dance at their live shows. Recently, Tatanka toured with notable flagship bands in the Reggae-Rock community, including playing direct support for the Summer of Sweet Love Tour with headliners Fortuante Youth from Los Angeles, California and Passafire from Savannah, Georgia prior to that. Tatanka is not certainly freshmen to touring circuit.
Since Tatanka’s 2009 release of Where the Buffalo Roam, the band has continued to be relentless artists in the recording studio. Releasing, Sounds in Technicolor EP in 2010, as well as their 2011 full-length album debut, John Dunbar, which featured Ted Bowne of Passafire on a track titled “The Shark”. Now, with 2013 barely underway, Tatanka is set for another EP release to set the stage for a prosperous year. Tatanka’s latest studio effort, Cloudless Thunder, will contain six studio tracks, including the song, “Turn To Fate”, featuring SensaMotion from New Jersey and local Denver MC and longtime friend of the band, Turner Jackson on the track, “Shredder”.
Cloudless Thunder will be officially released on January 24th, 2013, and Ian Gastl a.k.a “CHAMPIAN” (Vocals/Guitar) of Tatanka stated, “Cloudless Thunder is how some Native American’s described a buffalo’s stampede. We would like to think this EP will be heard from miles around just like one of these powerful stampedes.”
Tatanka’s frontman described the new EP’s sound as, “A hard hitting big sounding EP. This release consists of dub tracks as well as tracks where we feature other artists. It will be six songs you can nod your head to… [The album] sounds bigger and has a great groove. We went back to our recording roots recording this release in the same styles as our first release, Sounds in Technicolor.”
