J-pop synths and sounds?

Hey everyone. This is my very first post here, although I've been lurking for years to answer many of my questions. I've been getting more into late 2000s Jpop, specificaly Utada Hikaru's 5th album Heart Station. I was wondering how I could emulate that sound and make it my own, what plugins and sounds would be best? I can't figure out how to get the compression to pump like the way it does in this song, and all the synths I find just... Aren't the same. I know to someone who's experienced with electronic production it's probably simple, but I'm mostly experienced with recording live instruments, and I want to mix the two. Any tips would be very much appreciated!
