Hieroglyphic Being
Synth Expression/Rhythmic Cubism

Synth Expression/Rhythmic Cubism is the latest LP from one of Chicago's most prolific sons, Jamal Moss AKA Hieroglyphic Being. Moss takes sounds from all aspects of the Chicago dance scene and beyond, seemingly never happy sticking with one genre. Polyrhythmic, polyphonic, anchored by bass, rooted in Chicago, but open to new ideas.

Hieroglyphic Being
The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series)

Following up his loving tribute to all things innovative in the jazz world from classic Blue Note records onwards on 'The Red Notes', Jamal Moss releases The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series) under his foremost Hieroglyphic Being alias.  Moss visited the late Bob Moog's Sound Lab at the tail end of 2016 and the Chicago house music innovator tested the classic and futuristic machines to their oscillating limits. Prismatic Afro-Futurism never sounded so Moogy, so groovy. Limited edition LP and CD on Moog Recordings Library.

The Sun God
The Anticipatory Organization

Described in the press release as 'three rousing tracks to stir the attention' (whatever that means), this record is probably one you're going to want to listen to should you need to have your attention stirred (apparently). It's worth noting that amongst the attention related jokes that these three tracks are actually pretty cool...like the album art. The Sun God is, of course, Chicago's finest - explorer of rhythmic cubism Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being.

Hieroglyphic Being
The Red Notes

Prolific producer and DJ Jamal Moss puts out another record under his primary Hieroglyphic Being alias. He expanded his horizons with a collaborative album We Are Not the First in 2015, learning from and working directly with Marshall Allen and JITU Ahn-Sahm-Buhl. He follows it up with a record orbiting the same world: The Red Notes plugs in to the legend and legacy of Blue Note, in particular its hardest shredders Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane, marrying their innovations with Chicago house.
