    15/10

    Taka is a straight legend when it comes to percussion - even crazier the fast turnaround time.

    He simply gets it.

    Bravo bravo bravo brother

    Takafumi did a wonderful job with my track. He added a great percussion section in such a quick turn around time. I 100% recommend him to anyone looking to add a little something special to their track

    Great work! Taka was super fast and delivered some amazing percussion work within just a couple of hours! He was also very reasonable with his fee, very communicative and totally adaptable to requirements throughout the project. Thank you so much, Taka!

    Great working with Takafumi, he was prompt and was able to send a percussion arrangement in the same day, high quality recording of several percussion sounds. Would love to work with him again.
