Special extended edition with 3 hours of Jamal Moss, aka Hieroglyphic Being, The Sun God, I.B.M. and IAMTHATIAM. Taking influence from seeing Ron Hardy at the Musik Box and a degree in cultural anthropology, Moss traces his city’s spiritual history, creating new life with an uncloneable aesthetic that bridges acid, industrial and ambient. The bulk of his enormous discography is self-released via Mathematics, also a platform for hometown heroes Adonis, Lil Lois and Steve Poindexter, alongside new blood Simoncino and John Heckle. Moss’s avant-garde DJ approach destroys the normal conventions, challenging audiences with superior selections mixed super loose; disorientating imperfection that finds Jon Hassell, Chip. E, Akiko Yano, Plastikman and Level 42 become one. Here we present the slow building first 3 hours of a 6 hour set recorded live in Bristol earlier this year.
Catch Hieroglyphic Being’s mind-bending live performance at Goodgod Congress this Friday 15 November and at Animals Dancing’s Melbourne Music Week jam on Saturday, co-headlining with Justin Vandervolgen.

Noise In My Head present a triple bill of the world’s finest music archaeologists – Awesome Tapes From Africa (New York), Invisible City Sound System (Toronto) and one of our favourite DJs Tako (Amsterdam). This afro-boogie-disco dream team comes together for a once in a lifetime club experience.
Cult blog and label Awesome Tapes From Africa has accumulated and shared 100s of rare African cassettes. Preserving material that is far from the continent’s typically known funk, its mastermind Brian Shimkovitz’s unparalleled DJ sets uncover everything from 80s stadium pop to low tech hip hop and drum n bass divas. If you’re chasing the “real” sound of Africa, this is your ultimate destination.
After several trips to Trinidad, DJ/record label unit Invisible City Sound System lead an international curiosity in dancefloor calypso and tropical disco. Also heavy on the afro tip, they’ve reissued lost masterpieces from Witch, Michael Boothman & Stephen Encinas and promise to keep you grooving all night long.
A supreme DJ and the deepest of diggers, Tako is continuously at the coalface of discovery, lapping the European countryside on a quest for the most amazing music we’ve never heard. Championing his finds through his two labels Into The Light Records and Music From Memory, he’s also 1/2 of curated store RedlightRecords Amsterdam – a mecca of inspiration for DJs worldwide. Forget the big names, go straight to their source!
