Hyroglifics has just launched a retro 8-bit side scroller…



Hyroglifics will drop a pivotal EP on us via Critical this Friday: All Talk

His biggest body of work since last year’s No Drama EP (and coated in some seriously cool artwork – above) it’s another extensive showcase. Digging deep from foundation jungle to swathing halftime by way of sharp soulful steppers, it also features the likes of Foreign Beggars and DRS. Dropping just days before Hyroglifics heads to Montreal to represent at Red Bull Music Academy’s Class Of 2016, he’s celebrating by giving a track away: Delusions.

It’s yours on one provision: you’ve got to score 20 records in an annoyingly addictive side scroller in which you play the role of Pixelglifics (Hyroglifics 8 bit spirit animal, basically) and bounce your way around moonlit platforms collecting records on the way to the intergalactic gig of your dreams.

Fancy your chances? See below, Critical Music gave some of the big boys a head start to see if you can beat their score. 128? Have a word Noisia.
