Introducing : Ikuko Morozumi by Louis Sterling-Snell

We are proud to announce that Tokyo-based industrial artist Ikuko Morozumi will be releasing her latest project 'Null' on ID Spectral.

Ikuko Morozumi - Null, is a two track EP that not only encompasses the industrial aesthetic of Ikuko's unique artistry, but is a project sits somewhere within the codex of the Matrix, sonically built of the same dystopian and futurist architecture to that of Blade Runner, or the avant garde ambience in Ex-Machina. The project is a synaesthetic experience, to say the least. 

"I wanted to get something of non-verbal communication as I worked on this EP" 

Previously releasing on imprints such as the infamous Detroit Underground, Mayoware Records and Future disorder, Ikuko has been a creative all of her life, producing works that have more than often been said to sit under the banner of 'Noise' and 'Glitch' music, compared to affiliated artists such as Yaporigami, Valance Drakes or the roster on Detund. When we asked Ikuko what her driving force and influences were behind her work as a contemporary artist, she went to mention :  

"Originally I liked the classics, but I began to adore Bjork and Chemical Brothers. After that I heard Ryoji Ikeda may be the chance. I also began to long for Raster Norton."

'"I heard lots of Yaporigami's sounds too. The influence of Raster Norton and Yaporigami is great in my sound."

Moreover, as we come to the release of 'Null' on ID Spectral, she tell IDS : 

"I have been getting old, but the quest for music still goes on. For that purpose I initialize the present and head towards "null point".

On Null, we find that genres and terms such as 'IDM', 'Glitch' or 'Noise' music cannot justify the outerworldly journey that Iku work pulls us through. The two track project is a futuristic simulation; a catastrophe, with an ambient musicality that she has so delicately produced into a body of art, topped by the stunning creative direction of multi-disciplinry artist Jedd Winterburn. 

'It is not difficult to live simple. I think that it is necessary to be flexible in sound and performance, so I just want to do what I want to do. And for that reason, we will also leave from the "null" (nothing, zero) point."

Anji Cheung to Feature on IDS Launch Compilation by Louis Sterling-Snell

#IDS Artist | 006 :

We are incredibly proud to announce that Anji Cheung will be featuring on the ID Spectral launch compilation.

With a truly unique approach to sound, the atmosphere of Anji's works has fallen under the umbrella of avant-garde music; more specifically the industrial, ambient and contemporary spectrum of electronic music. And it is by no surprise that through this she has gained the attention of The Quietus, NTS Radio, and ATTN magazine, accompanied by ritualistic live performances in spaces that inhibit the ethereal environments of her strong-bodied soundscapes.

With a plethora of works, live performances and radio shows on platforms such as NTS Radio and BBZ LDN, Loraine's electronic and experimental works have been considered closely to that of Telefon Tel Aviv or Aoki Takamasa, sitting somewhere amongst the experimental banner of Warp Records or Ninja Tune.
