The Fourth Dimensions of a Nubian Mystic by Hieroglyphic Being

Recently voted "The Worst DJ Of All Time" by some disappointed club-goers who couldn't deal with how real he was, Hieroglyphic Being continues to do literally whatever he wants with another smattering of good old acid. This 12" continues to prove Jamal Moss a titan of whatever he wants, with jazz percussion on the b-side and the same old house prowess. 'The Fourth Dimensions of a Nubian Mystic' is pretty good for the worst DJ of all time.

Top quality psychedelic techno from Jamal Moss operating under his Hieroglyphic Being moniker here. Anyone who has experienced one of his dj sets will know that this guy has massively broad tastes- amongst the underground house and techno staples you can expect anything from Wolf Eyes to Sade to be thrown into the mix. While this 12" features some of the most accessible material I've heard from him, it has that all-embracing exuberance and experimental intensity that makes him so distinctive amongst dance music producers. 'The Fourth Dimension' kicks off with a slightly off-kilter beat that owes a nod to early Chicago House in its rawness. When a spiralling melodic loop takes up the midground the beat falls into place while oriental sounding modal synth droplets dance across the surface. Then another, more driving rhythm propels things headlong as acidlines worm their way through the joyously filtered expanse.

'Star Time' starts off with a characteristically intense drum loop that manages to sound both futuristic and primitive. Over this mesmerising synth loops pulsate as more modal sprinkles are scattered about and a wild, jazzy polyrhythm cuts in and out. Feverish, supremely intuitive and with a healthy dose of the kind of wide-eyed futurism that harks back to the origins of electronic dance music.
