New Attic Note: “Happening”

Tokyo-based producer Attic Note delivers a solid electronic track with “Happening,” a bit of pitch-bended sharpness that plays around with a familiar approach but hits on something all its own. It wasn’t that long ago that tipsy numbers anchored by vocals manipulated to be faster or slower were the dominant sound of the community here, but have since given way to either more experimental fare or stuff that is far more blunt. Yet “Happening” shows the charms of this other way, especially when the breakdown comes in all off-balance and jagged, delivering a lot of joy in the process. Listen above.
