Two tracks from the Cavern of Anti-Matter (Time Gane / Joe Dilworth of Stereolab) 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. A 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. Clear vinyl packaged in a clear PVC sleeve.
