Boomkat Product Review:
The 3rd, final and by far away baddest volume in Hieroglyphic Being's archival deep dive; harvesting cosmic house jackers salvaged from a pile of VHS tapes of a 20+ year vintage, and including some of thee wildest productions in the entire Jamal Moss microcosm.
The final batch of ‘The Shittest Sounds U Don't Ever Want 2 Hear…’ presents a further dozen VHS-baked aces from Jamal's crypt, including cuts from far back as 1996, and all speaking to the unique breadth of his vision over the years. As longtime disciples of the Sun God will know well, the Chicago deity is a real unbique presence in his field, bridging house with its jazz and psychedelic machine music origins to locate a very special, inimitable energy that keeps us coming back for more.
Anyone who has followed the series and indeed Hieroglyphic Being’s work to date will recognise the mad quality within, characterised in the nine minutes of outstanding, psychosexual house thrust in ‘Deep Up In IT (1998 Edit)’ and the shocking club turbulence of ‘Mystical Equations (1996 Edit)’, and thru to a pair of keeling synth noise jams named after distant, earth-like planets.
Observant acolytes will be rewarded here with some of Jamal’s deadliest; going wickedly overeasy on the rhythmic noise drill ‘2Mass 1750-00’ and properly far-out in the aforementioned ‘Gliese’ parts, while unleashing angular nuggets such as the lusting, tracky killer ‘Freaky Little Creatures’, plus jab-jacking arp riders such as ‘Romp Stomp’ that hypnotically hark to his more melodic works with Axis and Klang.
Jamal is a real one, and this lot ranks as classic, canonical jakbeat.
