Chicago artist Jamal Moss will release his next Hieroglyphic Being album through Ninja Tune's Technicolour label.
Described as the producer's "definitive solo album of 2016," The Disco's Of Imhotep looks to be another adventurous effort from Moss, who's produced dozens of full-lengths over the past decade, covering house, jazz, experimental and beyond. It's dedicated to Imhotep, the ancient Egyptian polymath, whose name translates to "the one who comes in peace, is with peace."
Here's what Moss himself has to say about the album:
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."Due out in early August,The Disco's Of Imhotep will be the second LP on Technicolour, following last year's Romantic Psychology I, from Darren Cunningham's Levantis project. (The label is otherwise focused on singles, which have come from the likes of Legowelt, Florian Kupfer and, most recently, Nathan Melja.)
