- Acid Symphonic Op.01 by Jamal Moss
9/10 Ant Staff review, 17 February 2014
Sixty two minutes no less of Chicago’s Jamal Moss (Hieroglyphic Being/ The Sun God/ I.B.M) jamming out some corking acid grooves from one of those teeny weenie Teenage Engineering Op.01 synths. I’m assuming he’s also using a drum machine as I don’t think that synth does drums does it? Anyway as he improvises across the session he locks into some serious grooves, creating bubbling basslines and wriggling psychedelic acid. I was surprised how dancefloor friendly the session is as I was expecting him on his more out there weirder vibes like his ‘Le Jardin Des Chemins Bifurquants’ LP. Despite the fact he’s limited himself in terms of tools it still manages to have his very distinctive sound. Sure there are bit’s where he’s finding his way into a new groove and things can slip and become untidy for a moment or two but it’s all part of the process and part of the ride you’re on with Jamal.
The recording really captures the energy and spirit of the session. Towards the end of the first side the acid really gets into full swing. On the second side things begin pretty stripped back, building with cowbells and then into full on cosmic acid ritual ending with a really lush almost meditative mood that I could happily have had some more of. He even pops up at the end on the mic thanking the audience and letting them know nothing was rehearsed and that it was all improvised. Another great addition to Jamal Moss’s vast discography.
