Wonderful as always!!
I have worked with Takafumi multiple times and he is always wonderful, delivering a great performance and a quick turnaround time. Highly recommend!!
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
Takafumi really added something special to my song with his percussion track. I love how it sounds. He was very professional and accommodating to work with. 5 Stars!
Taka is a beast on the percussion! Turned it around so quickly too!
Taka is a beast! A pleasure to work with, very quick and provided super groovy and creative percussion lines for my track. Thank you! 11/10!
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!
Takafumi is an excellent percussionist! Extremely quick turn-around and a pleasure to work with!
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.
Super fast service and gave the song exactly what it needed.
