For a number of years, Gilligan Moss has been producing left-field house music on the sly; his creative outlet in his native Chicago. In 2013, Moss began sharing tracks with close friends, and soon devoted himself to music. Since moving to Brooklyn, NY in 2015 he has been steadily producing a stream of gorgeously off-kilter electronic pop that has slowly but surely been accruing a cult following of fans.
“Ceremonial”, Moss’ vibrantly technicolour debut EP, is the glorious first official release on new label, AMF Records. “Choreograph”, a demo uploaded to Soundcloud personally, is a brilliantly adrenalin- inducing breakthrough. Interpolating a dizzying array of samples that builds and builds into a seismic flurry of organic-electronic activity, it’s as if Moss has crammed in a dozen songs all at once, seemingly diametric sonic elements rearranged and married to form an unnatural, yet lucid cohesion. The demo version caused a flurry on the blogs when initially leaked online and has since received play on BBC1, Beats1, NPR, Triple J and several other top outlets worldwide.
The “Ceremonial” EP shows off Moss’ ability to marry his eclectic palette of psych-rock, synthpop, house and more to seamless yet dazzling effect. Set to release a follow up EP in early 2016, and with a handful of new remixes and tour dates slated for fall ‘15, expect to be seeing a lot more of Moss.
