Digital Woods: Takanax’s “Forest”

Takanax is a Japanese producer floating around netlabel Sy4in Records, doing plenty of solid work on their own, too. “Forest” is the artist’s latest, and it is a surprisingly contemplative number, at least by dance-centric internet standards. It features synth-generated moans and 8-bit frosting, but never goes too cutesy (or maximalist), instead opting for a song that feels like it is always on the verge of bubbling over, but at its most bopping moves at a hiccupy jog. Listen above.
