Pioneer’ and ‘originator’ are terms that are massively overused these days, in truth there are very few people who can truly lay claim to the term without exageration. Massonix is a project by Graham Massey (808 State), and he 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. There seems little point in going into great detail about the history of 808 State, the line up changes, the stadium gigs, the chart success, lets just take it for granted that you know about them already.

He has been involved in production and remix work for artists such as Bjork, (who he has worked with on numerous occasions from the present day going back to her days with The Sugarcubes), Art of Noise, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Yes, Afrika Bambaataa, Primal Scream, UB40, The Future Sound of London, Robbie Williams (yes, that Robbie Williams), Gong, Blue Pearl, Goldfrapp, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Quincy Jones, David Bowie, Rolf Harris, Souixsie and the Banshees, Bomb the Bass and the Stone Roses.

Until now, other than a 12” released in 1990, most of the stunning music that Graham has composed as Massonix has been for occasional livesets here and there, including sets from The Shock City event that took place in Manchester cathedral in 1998, the Warp 10th birthday lighthouse party in 2000, and Autechres all Tomorrows Parties Festival in 2003. Much of the music on this nautically themed album comprises elements of rhythm and melody originally taken from these livesets, which have then been reworked and assembled into finished tracks.
