Jamal Moss’s Mathematics sub-label +++ is responsible for what is in my opinion some of his finest work. An outlet for his more experimental cosmic house and techno. ‘A Synthetic Love Life’ is an eight track double 12” kicking off on the A-side with a bangin’ sci-fi techno stomper with tough rugged industrial beat. This is followed by a dirty overdriven distorted drum machine workout that sounds like it could collapse at any given moment. The production raw, dirty and lo-fi. There’s no frills here, just raw machine funk.

Over on the B-side is a tough chicago Jacker with Jamal’s glorious synths sounding like the voices of ancient machines. Then we get a stomping track with a free flowing jazzy feel.

On the second disc the first tune has beautiful, soulful chiming melodies followed by melancholy soundscapes on the second track. Over on side D is a goose bump inducing melody that sounds somehow familiar, it’s pure electronic soul that gradually becomes enveloped in tougher industrial machine sounds. A real highlight of the set. Finally there’s some skittering and stuttering rim-shots and sharp hi-hats creating darker unnerving vibes, eventually becoming swallowed up by bubbling caustic acid.

There’s a live/ jam/ improvised feel throughout which is always refreshing in electronic music that increasingly feels like it’s over quantized, over produced and rigidly tied to the computer clock. Outstanding stuff from quite possibly my favourite producer on planet earth. I’m not crazy about every track he does but when his tunes hit that sweet spot I’m in pure sonic heaven. Highly recommended.
