Hatis Noit

I’m off to wander Japan, so today’s artist is avant-garde Hatis Noit.

She hails from Hokkaido but now lives in London.

Her name from Japanese folklore means the stem of a lotus flower, connecting the living world of the flower and the spirit world of the root.

On her new EP, Illogical Dance, she collaborated with electronic duo Matmos.

“Illogical Lullaby”
