Twenty First Century Jesus is the 1993 debut album by Ali Ghani and Mark Davies, who were known as Messiah. They released one album on Rick Rubin's american recordings subsidiary WHTE LBLS before moving to another label for their second and last project.
Messiah became a favorite on the club/dance charts in 1994 with the sassy single "Temple of Dreams." They were already mainstays in the London acid house scene throughout the early '90s; however, their pulsating decor on 21st Century Jesus escalated into a full-out rave party. It was before the commercial success of Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers, although Moby's underground work from the late '80s would match. The sonic rave heaven captured on this album transcends into a spiraling loop of energetic disco samples and pulsating techno waves. It's much harder and defining of what was supposed to come of the U.K. techno scene in America, but thankfully it stayed a step ahead. Messiah's 21st Century Jesus exuded raw vigor, and tracks like "There Is No Law" and "Peace and Tranquility" illustrate the impeccable beauty of Messiah's take on dance music of the mid-'90s. The Donna Summer twist of "I Feel Love" is dramatic, but the obnoxious feel to "Creator" soars with throbbing electronic grooves. The Cult's Ian Astbury's brawny guest vocals are hypnotizing and ripped. "Thunderdome" does the same. Messiah paid close attention to the direction found on 21st Century Jesus. It's gutsy and bold, and delightfully arrogant.

*******

Oh, it seemed a lot of people in the early 1990's were paranoid about the New World Order. The pending end of the world. The doom of our modern society. If anything, it inspired thousands of artists to create some incredible music, and the duo of Ali Ghani and Mark Davies, as messiah, were one of many monarchs.

In 2006, I would call this electronica, although back then with various genres flying around, this was tagged everything from "techno" to "jungle" to "hardcore" to "acid", and even some light "house" touches. Arguably, if there was a drought in hip-hop's production, a number of dance styles of the era were there to pick up the slack, converting beat hungry maniacs into E-popping loons.

This is an incredible album that should be listened to from start to finish. It consists of synthesizers, sequencers, and samples kissing and humping each other in a frantic orgy of beats and pulsating rhythms, with no regard for skin tone or BPM.

This one we'll leave to quotes from the office. While Matt was feigning a nose bleed, the following was heard from different desks in the warehouse: "Oh! I'm raving my panties off!" "What izzz this shit?!!" "Sounds like chimpmunks fucking," and, of course, "Make it go away."
