Double vinyl LP pressing. Massonix is a project by UK producer extraordinaire Graham Massey, and this release is a collection of tracks spanning ten years of sub-aquatic electronic keyboard portraitures. "Pioneer" and "originator" are terms that are massively overused these days, and there are very few people who can truly lay claim to the term without exaggeration. Massonix is one of those people. In the mid 1980s, while still recording with Biting Tongues (who recorded albums for Factory Records, amongst others), he started making music with Gerald Simpson and Martin Price under the name 808 State. Much of the music on this nautically-themed album comprises elements of rhythm and melody originally taken from these live sets, which have then been reworked and assembled into finished tracks. The results will make you delirious. Skam. 2006.
