Cor Ardens is pleased to present the debut album by Philadelphia based multi-dimensional energy worker and interdisciplinary practitioner, Jordan Deal. Known primarily as a visual and performance artist with a keen eye for the miraculous potentials of everyday objects and found materials. Deal combs through waste streams of aural (and spiritual) detritus like scanning through stations on a radio, culling densely layered field recordings and plunderphonic samplings which periodically break into beautiful songs with more recognizable instruments freely mixing influences of African American free jazz, Black punk, gospel/negro spirituals, and divination rituals. In “GOGO Underworld”, deal presents the first installment of a sprawling Gesamtkunstwerk which will be spread across multiple releases and a film exploring “how the memories and mythologies of the Black diaspora can be used as conduits of historical and cultural preservation, tracing its global footprint–disrupting Western colonial thought modes and deploying dreaming as channels for potentiality, non-linear modes of intercepting time and space, and celebration as resistance”.   comes encased in a wax/glass assemblage designed by the artist, produced in collaboration with Cor Ardens

Jordans work defies easy categorization. Inspired by the wandering spiritual depths of artists like Alice Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders "GOGO UNDERWORLD" pits prophetic sci-fi infused spoken word ("there are parasites in the pyramids") with the bristling kitchen sink art-damage of ONO, Early Destroy All Monsters and Moor Mother
