Rubadub's Review
South London poet / DJ James Massiah steps forth with his self-produced solo debut released on NTS mainstay Jon Rust’s Levels label. Ethereal, lofty vibes delivered in a buoyant dancehall / house hybrid. In “Natural Born Killers” Massiah testifies to a newfound earthly love and guilt free living, inspired by a search for meaning in a selfish world. All tracks on the EP were written & produced by James Massiah himself, as he continues in his mission to elude the pigeonholing of his talents (Poet, DJ, Producer, Artist). The vinyl edition features a mix for dance floors from a certain Pete O’Grady, whose support Massiah has enjoyed over recent years, with Joy O regularly weaving Massiah’s acapellas into his sets ever since the release of the latter’s Euthanasia Party / 27 collection of poems. “144,000” on the b-side, is a dark Memphis inspired cut not to be overlooked, while “Last Dance” (available on the digital release) finds Massiah riding high on his more Chicago house leanings.
