Product Description

Massacooramaan (aka Dave Quam) rose to international attention through his music writing & photography, which was some of the first to thoroughly document the then underground juke and footwork artists from his adopted home, Chicago. Recently, after years in Chicago he relocated to Oregon where he shifted his focus to the studio and began to create his first body of work, which has grown to become his debut EP "Dead Long Time."

With a contempt for rhythmic regularity and an encyclopedic sample library, Massacooramaan reinterprets juke, reggaeton, and other styles from various corners of the earth into his own twitching and brutal sound. Already an underground anthem, title track "Dead Long Time" grabs you by the neck and shakes you with its stop-start rhythm which is synched up to a dancehall vocal sample that commands you to "kill mon dead." It's a homicidal ladies jam that unites the fury of death metal with a stuttering bubbling beat.

"Aww Sh*t!", conceptualized with DJ Rashad exemplifies Massacooramaan's skill with vocal chopping, pairing the juke legend's vocals with popping 808 toms. "Bludgeon Riddim" cracks with a very real electricity, a beat whose syncopation and sound palette border on the autistic. "Wijd" is a call to arms for a forgotten nomadic people, with swirling peyote laced vocals to celebrate the end of a successful hunt, while "Jumbie Yelp" enters as the most restrained of the bunch, a hypnotically bouncy and dreamy ghetto house instrumental. Closing out the EP is "Dancehall Princess," a joyful attack on those who fear reggaeton, lovingly tying the sounds of footwork and dembow together with a classic dancehall vocal.

Inspired by Massacooramaan's catalog of obscure sample packs, and obsessive knowledge of exotic YouTube rips, Kingdom has created the album art for FADE004: a molten ball of club flyers and encrypted data punctured by protruding knives and swords.
