Soul Jazz launch new imprint with Hieroglyphic Being 12

Soul Jazz are launching a new sub label, Sounds Of The Universe, (the same name as their shop in London). The first release on the label is a Hieroglyphic Being split with Japanese graffiti artist 2Yang. One side of the record holds the Hieroglyphic Being track "Shikaakwa", and the reverse carries a graphic etching by 2Yang.

The record will be produced in an edition of 300, and is only available direct from Soul Jazz. Listen to the tracks and see the etching here, or watch a preview below.
