DBA Recommends: James Massiah
James Massiah is the poet, DJ and producer behind 2017’s Euthanasia Party / 27 collection of poems. His DJ sets are freeform and dancefloor-friendly, taking in everything from UK rap to Chicago house, while his poetry reflects on the experience of being young in London during one of the most torrid decades in recent history. On Natural Born Killers these two aspects of his practice meet at what feels like an untrodden crossroads, perfectly and uniquely capturing the mood of the city today. The record lands on the ever-essential Levels label, the imprint belonging to much underrated DJ Jon Rust of NTS fame, with a mix from local hero Joy O. Buy here.
