Messiah J & The Expert ready new album

Messiah J & The Expert release their third album, From The Word Go, through Inaudible Recordings in October.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 06 Aug 2008

Assembled between 2006 and 2008 in their own Labbey Road studio, it finds the Dublin hip-hoppers collaborating with singers Leda Egri, Joanne Daly and Ro and Kieran from Delorentos.

The full track-listing is: ‘Year Of The Genie’, ‘Megaphone Man’, ‘Keep The Noise Down’, ‘Turn The Magic On’, ‘Tomorrow Is Too Late’, ‘Jean Is Planning An Escape’, ‘Guess You Had To Be There’, ‘Geography’, ‘Panic Station’, ‘Amnesia Comes Easily’, ‘Looking For A Long Term Thing’ and ‘The Predicament’.

“It has loads of strings and horns on it and it's pretty catchy,” Messiah J reflects. “It’s ballsier, riskier, less cluttered, simpler and definitely more eclectic than any of our previous records. The Expert's music is extremely varied. It has bits of indie, reggae, funk, four to the floor dance, psych and 'theme-tune-walk-in-the-ring' hip hop.”
