Hiero­glyphic Be­ing

The Disco’s of Imhotep

That's China - - New Releases -

Tech­ni­colour Records Aug 1, 2016

Earth shat­ter­ing (and sur­pris­ingly ac­ces­si­ble) stuff from Chicago’s pro­lific Lo-Fi Afro-fu­tur­ist Acid House dude. Mould­ing techno,house, free jazz, in­dus­trial and psychedelia into rough’n’ready body mu­sic is not for the faint of heart, but Jamal Moss im­bues his work with enough love that his tracks ooze a kind of ana­logue soul. On tracks such as “Spir­i­tual Of­fer­ings” and “Crocodile Skin”, the sound is pure ’89 jackin’ house, al­beit to­tally de­void of what­ever small amount of stu­dio sheen the orig­i­nals had. “The Way of The Tree of Life” echoes with the rattles and hums of some alien fax ma­chine and the al­bum’s ti­tle track is Be­ing’s fullest re­al­i­sa­tion yet of his raw-ass cos­mic club vi­sion. If you’ve ever dreamt about Sun Ra jam­ming with Sui­cide, you should prob­a­bly spend some time get­ting ac­quainted with Hiero­glyphic Be­ing.
