Bleed Presents...: Hieroglyphic Being
"Looming large at the crossroads between the experimental and the dancefloor, Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being is the man and the legend behind the amazing Mathematics label. Mentored by Steve Poindexter and Adonis, and proclaiming himself as "the last of the line of producers directly inspired by Ron Hardy at Music Box", he is uniquely qualified to write a new chapter of Chicago's rich musical history."

Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being has built a sterling reputation both as a producer and live performer of deep, mesmeric experimental electronics and free jazz rooted in his native Chicago and his relationship with the city’s fertile underground club scene. Inspired by the likes of Ron Trent, DJ Rush (residents at The Reactor where he danced week in week out) and Ron Hardy, Moss was mentored by visionary producers Steve Pointdexter and Adonis, who showed him the drum machines that were the backbone of the Movement and whom encouraged his early forays into music production.
Releasing prolifically on his own Mathematics Recordings imprint and a clutch of other imprints, Moss has cemented his stature as a unique creative force. He balances his ancient heritage and musical DNA with a passion to experiment, create and channel music as a healing force, which has resulted in his art being tagged “Afrofuturist”. Moss, however, prefers to describe his output as Synth Expressionism / Rhythmic Cubism and would rather be viewed simply as a promoter of Nubian Rights.
