No-Face "Monsoon Kiss"
- Words: Leo Maymind
"Monsoon Kiss," the debut track from anonymous producer No-Face, succeeds by seamlessly marrying together both futuristic- and retro-leaning sounds. It kicks off with a speaker drone that slowly morphs into a dusty, side-chained groove which captures a restlessness reminiscent of the likes of Flying Lotus. No-Face weaves together a slippery Rhodes melody and a sticky wordless vocal, and though the track seems to float by in a psychedelic haze, we're left with that feeling that there's plenty left to explore in "Monsoon Kiss"'s three dimensional layers.
