Ever-prolific techno stargazer Hieroglyphic Being continues his endless trajectory on a collaboration with drummer Sarathy Korwar, who has previously made records involving both Sidi folk music and electronic fusion. Also on the record is saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, the three artists playing without queues for two and a half hours and seeing what comes out. These four tracks offer an explosive set.

9/10 Laurie Staff review, 10 August 2017

OOO interesting, here is a record on Technicolour that sees the legendary Hieroglyphic Being collaborate with drummer Sarathy Korwar and ridiculous Sons of Kemet sax man Shabaka Hutchings. Apparently they kicked out the jams for a good 2 and a half hours, the energetic result distilled into a 45rpm 12” record.

Things begin with an uptempo Jamal Moss signature stomp, augmented mostly by Korwar’s varied percussion and occasionally with Hutchings’ sax peeking through the aura of Moss’ synth layers. Hutchings comes to the fore for the second tune, overlapping with himself and some incredible hat ‘n’ snare rolls from Korwar while Moss bounces about in the background. Some throaty sax screech action in the second half, wonderful. On the flip, they go into atmospheric mode, a patchwork of dreamy synth, lightly rhythmic hand percs and toms and subtle, fluttering sax. Notorious sax adversary Phil might even enjoy this. The final tune is a short but sweet celebration of their time together, the tempo nudged an extra lil bit for good measure.

For me, this is the techno of the year.
