"James Donadio pricked up our ears a year or so ago with his excellent 'Psychedelic Black' debut for his own StabUdown label, followed by an album for Digitalis and a split tape with Basic House co-released by Opal Tapes and Blowing Up The Workshop. Of everything we've heard from him so far "Shaking Single Engined Planes" on his debut stands out as his finest - we likened it to one of Powell's productions at the time, and funnily enough Donadio now finds himself with a Diagonal catalogue number all his own. This strong 4-track EP once again showcases Donadio's knack for imbuing dry rhythmic structures with something extra, the emphasis on this new EP being on a tight, squashed funk. "Kisses Undelivered" opens the EP and squares up with a linear alignment of rugged drums and saturated samples stuttering in and out like a bone-dry variant of Gescom's remix of Push Button Objects' 'Non-Existant'. "Poison the Masses" again inverts a hip hop template quite brilliantly, likened by the label to "Cabaret Voltaire's sharp fusions of pop nous with sonic experimentation", while "Sold A Decade At A Time" is at once one of the most primitive sounding and ultimately satisfying productions we've heard from him yet - tempering stabs with a seemingly chaotic arrangement that builds into a heavy, relentless percussive monster that will terrify you in the best possible way when played loud. With super disturbing artwork by Guy Featherstone, who, with photographer Robbie Maynard "tracked down two London hookers off the Caledonian Road" - it's another aesthetically daring and impressive release from this increasingly prolific label."--Boomkat
