BIG SMOKE MAGAZINE REVIEW – NOVEMBER 2008
Taner, a young man who’s ready to dispel those less than appropriate attitudes with his soul soothing crooning and tenacious mic skills. Fusing both soulful R&B and Hip-Hop Taner delivers a smooth repertoire that you won’t have felt since the D.A.I.S.Y. Age (nods to De La Soul). His album Back in The Day, which dropped in August and it is a testament to that soul-food hip-hop that a lot of us so deeply crave.
It’s clear as day that Taner is a self-confessed old school dude, his flow on the mic, his lyrics and even his style of singing rings so evidently. The single Back in 94 featuring Jibbarish & DJ Terror is a tribute itself to the ‘old school’. Maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s not wanting to grow up, or maybe it’s because R&B and Hip-Hop today is not what used to be. He maybe stuck in time warp reminiscing when hip-hop was good for him, and for a lot of us 90’s loving backpackers and lyrical rhyme cravers for that matter, but the fact remains that he’s guy that knows how to make the soul feel good about music again.
So never again will I only think that Essex is home to daft blondes, O.G cockneys and Southend-on-Sea, I will also know it is the home one of the U.K’s most soulful and talented singer/rapper in the form Taner.
“I wanted proper hip hop beats with harmonic vocals, not just hooks but versus with a hip hop state of mind, meaningful songs. I wanted to bring underground and commercial together…”

THE HIP HOP VILLAGE REVIEW DECEMBER 2008
The Hip Hop Village Albums
Taner ‘Back in the Day'
Essex singer/rapper Taner brings us his debut full length album ‘Back in the Day. The 11 track album allows you into Taner's world where he reminisces about his life and times in the form of singing and rapping. ILL Son provides tight production which gives the album an old school Pete Rock type of feel. If there was a season to describe this album then I'd have to say summer. DJ Terror, ILL Son and DJ Pager provide the cuts on various tracks. Ron Compost, Jibbarish, Full Creym, Dirty Verbals and Conique also provide there lyrical skills. Log onto You Tube and check out the video "Back in 94" if you feel the vibe of that track then you'll like the album which is available from <a href="http://www.dnawear.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.dnawear.com</a>/ also check out Taners's MySpace address for more info.
