Hieroglyphic Being announces The Seer of Cosmic Visions compilation to be released through Planet Mu

Have you been in search of that perfect space-jazz/techno blend? When you listen to Sun Ra’s most wack-o Moog solos, do you just yearn like some techno-sadist for a distorted, four-four kick to play on top, working manically, futilely toward a groove like some poor man trying to stop a blazing train from derailing? Well don’t we all.

But don’t worry, because Jamal Moss a.k.a. Hieroglyphic Being knows exactly what you want. The Chicago native and current linchpin of the city’s astounding techno/house legacy has been generously supplying “Rhythmic Cubism” and “Cosmic Be-Bop” to needy DJs, dancers, and enlightened listeners for over a decade now. His label, Mathematics, has been working to quell the shortage as well.

Now he’s signed on to Planet Mu, where he’ll be releasing an album with “The Configurative or Modular Me Trio” (which may just be him) titled The Seer of Cosmic Visions on October 7 in 2xLP, CD, and digital formats. It consists of selected tracks from Moss’s back catalog and runs the gamut from raw drum machine workouts to swirling, gamelan-infused beatscapes.

The tracklist is below, as well as video of a Boiler Room set he did last year, with mixing characteristically rough and ready.
