Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Hieroglyphic Being on WOBC. For those of you that don’t know Jamal is one of Chicago’s most respected DJs. Jamal is also the owner of the record label Mathematics. Mathematics is one of the most interesting labels in the game they continuously put out fantastic records, such as Kuba Sojka’s Mysterious Intrigue. Jamal does an incredible job picking up artists from out of the blue. The records he puts out always have unique styles that draw heavily from the mega-centers of Techno and House such as Detroit, Berlin and of course Chicago. I always find it surprising when I find out that the artist is actually from somewhere I have never heard of. We spoke for about 45 minutes and discussed a variety of topics ranging from his beginnings as a musician, to starting a label; of course we also listened to some unreleased Mathematics tracks.

Review: Wiki 1993 – Wikispeaks


The kids name is Wiki and he’s real young, you wouldn’t know that from his flow though. Its obvious that Wiki idolizes the 90’s, his rhymes and beats invoke the rawness embodied by everybody’s favorite “Old New York.” Wikispeaks is the standout track from Wiki’s EP 1993, which was released in October,  just got the visual treatment and you should check it out here. If you dig the vibes cop his full EP for free off his bandcamp.
