Following the August 8th limited release of British producer Iglooghost’s anticipated dual ‘Clear Tamei’ and ‘Steel Mogu’ EPs, the back-to-back follow ups to his acclaimed 2017 full-length debut ‘Neō Wax Bloom’ are now streaming on all platforms.
Although paired in format, the dual EPs draw from different corners of Igloos influences. ‘Steel Mogu’ is a hyperspeed collage of synthetic, trance-influenced synths contorting around violent, mutating 808s – whilst ‘Clear Tamei’ channels lavish string quartets and melancholic, fictional classical instruments.
The self-released double features are set in his fictional world of Mamu, 3000 years prior to the events of ‘Neō Wax Bloom’. We are introduced to a young, see-through, god-in-training named Tamei. Although gifted, he and his little cohorts resent their fate of becoming Grid Göds – and find themselves wound up in a hyperspeed, cross-temporal battle with a fleet of mysterious, round beings.

LISTEN TO STEEL MOGU EP
As ever, the releases are paired with original artwork by Iglooghost and multimedia storyline material that feed into Iglooghosts ever-expanding narrative, giving longtime fans their first glimpse into the primordial era of the Mamu dimension, millennia before we were introduced to the time-traveling gelatinous worm-shaped creature Xjangliao (Chinese Nü Year) and the devastation that ensued after two giant eyeballs came crashing down on Mamu (Neō Wax Bloom).
In the few short years since releasing his debut EP on Flying Lotuss Brainfeeder label at just 18 years old in 2015, UK producer, visual artist and designer Iglooghost, real name Seamus Malliagh, has quickly established himself as one of the most innovative electronic producers of a new generation with his unique and hyperkinetic blend of juke/footwork, hip hop, IDM, bass, 2-step and more within the bizarre cartoon-ish universe in which his stories unfold.
