"A Romance Of 2 Planets"

from the release A Romance Of 2 Planets

Alter label statement:
Hieroglyphic Being is one of the many projects of Chicago based artist Jamal Moss. He has nailed a highly unique sound that draws from a melting pot of influences such as Acid, Chicago House, Industrial and New Age music. Jamal's work is produced through primitive means and it successfully captures a raw intensity that other artists in his world often promise, but rarely ever deliver convincingly. His work stands alone in his field as being highly individualistic, and Jamal continues to follow his own special path after publishing countless releases on many independent labels worldwide. "A Romance Of 2 Planets" is taken from a 12" EP of the same name on Alter. A fine piece of off centre Techno incorporating many of Jamal's signature traits: primal four to the floor drum machine stabs, erratic and disjointed melodies that duck and dive around arpeggiated synth lines, and a self imposed rough style of editing.
