Over the past seven years, Takahashi and his former college-mate/fellow producer Nick Weiss have released records as Teengirl Fantasy on labels such as True Panther Sounds and R&S, collaborated with Kelela, Laurel Halo, and Panda Bear, and scored a Blade Runner-inspired Fashion Week collection for Opening Ceremony. Takahashi released his first solo album, NoGeo, in 2016, built on the minimal backbone of an Elektron Monomachine and named after the cross-cultural compositions of Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Crema was largely composed on hardware for live sets over the past two years. We're told that its "magic lies within its penchant for a kind of rhythmic playfulness that taps into a sense of oncoming elation—all punctuated by arpeggiations that trickle down the subconscious."
