aving recorded for a variety of labels (including Klang Elektronik and Mathematics Recordings), and as part of The Dirty Criminals (International Deejay Gigolo Records), Jamal Moss has long been a part of the Chicago house/techno scene as both a producer and DJ. Moss?s first creative endeavors were as part of a crew that created industrial soundscapes for the Liquid Summer parties at the famed Powerplant in Chicago from 1989-90. When the Powerplant was closed, Moss and his cohorts started Liquid Sex, which became a magnet for many well-known house artists
such as Steve Poindexter, who put Moss in touch with future collaborators the Bad Boys collective. He was also taken under the wing of house legend Adonis, who became a key mentor figure in Moss?s life and an inspiration for his moniker: “I decided to give myself meaning and purpose, to honor my father (who gave me life) and my mentor Adonis (who gave me knowledge); I named myself Hieroglyphic Being.? The project has thus far produced two distinguished EPs for Spectral, Machines for Lovers (2004) and Liquid Sex (2005).
