The last few months I’ve found myself consistently revisiting the sounds of Hinako Takada. Born in Japan, now based in Melbourne, this twenty-one year-old beatmaker and electronic music producer is definitely one to watch. ‘Apricot‘ is a truly stunning piece of electronic music; atmospheric synths, crisp percussion, and echoing vocal sounds are combined beautifully. Last month, she played a superb live set at Ferdydurke, listen to it here. Hinako Takada is the future.
