During an overnight session at a low-key studio in Toronto’s…

Experimental electronic artist Ikuko Morozumi releases her latest EP, Null, with ID Spectral. The summer debate of what constituted an album thanks to K*nye’s slew of mediocre offerings may have died down but Ikuko Morozumi is far removed from that nonsense.
