Hyroglifics has been a stalwart of the Critical roster following his debut Binary Vol. 1 release in 2014 and hasn’t set a foot out of place since. Building on a faultless back catalogue, 2019’s Stone Rose EP and 2020’s Best Of EP both represent his unflinching dexterity in drum & bass production, turning his hand from tender musicality to dancefloor-charged heavy hitters with a rare and enviable finesse.
This is an artist with a sharp and distinctive sonic identity, completely at home in drum & bass but just as comfortable outside of it. His and Sinistarr’s collaborative EP for Naina and Sherelle’s Hooversound imprint demonstrates his ability to sculpt his sound into exciting new shapes.
Now in 2020, he continues to stay one step ahead with an output so consistent that everything with his name on is guaranteed to impress. Hyroglifics has proven his place and further develops his musical voice with each passing year, an inimitable artist with an undeniably promising future ahead.
His debut album ‘I’ll Wait, I Guess’ was released on Critical June 2023. Written and recorded in Bristol before sessions in London and Los Angeles, where he now lives, ‘I’ll Wait, I Guess’ is his most diverse body of work so far. Though led by the detailed drum and bass he’s best known for, the album also includes tracks leaning towards grime, half-time, hip hop, techno and ambient music.
