Fractured Unity: IKTS’ “No-f”

Tottori creator IKTS turns seeming mess into something mesmerizing on “No-f.” Not to get too deep into simile, but this sounds like the musical equivalent of pouring a bunch of straws onto the ground and watching them spill all over the place. Jagged electronic notes dash all over the place, at first criss-crossing in unpredictable patterns and mostly making a mess. As “No-f” goes along however, all those disjointed parts fall into a pattern that creates a melody — a sharp one that still feels fragmented, but one nonetheless. Listen above.
