2017 marks 10 years of Lick My Deck and we are very excited to welcome one of Chicago’s finest and one of electronic music’s most singular visionary artists to the family: Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being. Jamal teams up with “The Truth Theory Trio” to deliver the “Materialized Psychism Of The Bottomless Void” EP. “Long Night Of Iboga” opens the EP and sees Jamal & The Trio create a DJ focused cut with unpredictable drum patterns, abstract melodies and psychedelic horns. A killer weapon for any seasoned selector. “Mystery Of The Changelings” is a mesmerizing 11 minute odyssey through magical harps, melancholic synths, and a piano riff that will stay with you long after listening. Truly music for the mind, body & soul. Praise be to The Sun God.
Jamal Moss and Steve Poindexter return with 3 tracks of straight bugged-out freakness and manic drum mechanics. ‘The Inbearable Tension’ on the A side is a tweaked-out acid stomper, while ‘The Release’ and the title track back off slightly…but not much!
Ron Hardy housed-up disco biz. Chaplin Band – Il veliero, Willie colon – She Don’t Know I Am Alive (dub two), Tony Cook & The Party People – On The Floor (underground mix). All the real djs were looking for those for years. Grab it before it’s sold out, we have very few copies. A must have.
Steve Poindexter and Jamal Moss return as The Faces of Drums banging those classic Gherkin style vibes and deep chaotic sound motions with a twist of off-kilter acid to finish you off in the classic Mathematics way.
Seriously strong Jamal Moss LP under his Hieroglyphic Being moniker. “The Disco’s Of Imhotep is about creating Frequencies and Vibrations for the Listener that are conducive for him or her to Heal The Mind and Body and Enrich the Soul by creating Hemi-Synced Harmonies and music that contains embedded Binaural Beats. We have been made to believe that electronic sounds are just for Movement, Enlightenment, Primal Afflictions and Entertainment purposes, but it’s much more… It’s Sound Healing, but the ancestors would call it Frequency Medicine. Medicine is Healing and this project is dedicated to one of Earth’s first Healers: High Priest Imhotep. The One who comes in Peace, is with Peace.”
Noleian Reusse and Jamal Moss team up again as Africans With Mainframes for ”Faces Of Africa EP”. Think early Ibadan or Smile records B-sides of murky excursions in Tribal and Techno.
