Ethereal Clanging: Toi Higuchi’s “4h10mn”

Tokyo-based producer Toi Higuchi strikes a lovely balance between ethereal electronica and clattering beat music on “4h10mn,” shared online this past weekend. Opting for one extreme or the other — a barely-there ambient track, or just a beat — probably wouldn’t have ended up all that compelling (no shortage of either floating around online), but Higuchi jumps between dreaminess and clatter just right. Listen above.
