Record Label: Duophonic Records
Limited edition Record Store Day release on clear vinyl in a printed clear PVC sleeve. Limited to 500 copies worldwide.
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.
