Two tracks from the void beats / invocation trex album, bent into new shapes by two of the most exciting electronic producers of the moment.
Chicago’s Jamal Moss records as Hieroglyphic Being, as well as a dizzying number of other names including The Sun God, Insane Black Man, Interplanetary Prophets (with Ital) and Face Of Drums (with Steve Poindexter). His typically raw and distorted re-work of “hi-hats bring the hiss” blends elements of acid house, industrial, and Sun Ra-style synth arpeggios, conjuring up a sense of blown out speakers at a subterranean 4am rave.
US-born, London-based producer Karen Gwyer has released records for Opal Tapes, No Pain In Pop and Nous. Slowing down “void beat” to a glacial shuffle, subtle shifting textures drift somewhere in between stoned dub disco, fractured techno and the hypnotically repeating motifs of the best kosmische music.
This limited edition release for Record Store Day has been pressed on clear vinyl, and is housed in a screenprinted PVC sleeve.
