Tricky Artist Snapshot:

Beginning as a member of the Massive Attack collective, Tricky released his own major claim to greatness, MAXINQUAYE, in 1995. The down-tempo grooves, husky rapping, and general air of menace all became hallmarks of the genre known as trip-hop, but Tricky's reworking of Public Enemy's "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos" showed that beneath the hypnotic beats lay danger. In the wake of his debut's overwhelming success, Tricky has taken pains not to repeat himself or court stardom. Thus, his post-MAXINQUAYE output has been increasingly dark, atmospheric, and almost willfully demanding of listeners.

Product Notes

Less experimentally brash than his more recent release, Tricky's debut CD Maxinquaye is actually a better introduction to the British hip-hopper turned international trip-hopper than his later work. The dozen smoldering, moonlit tracks are less concerned with loopy aural exaggeration than they are with showcasing Tricky's slow-mo rap and singer Martine's sexy soprano. With the exception of the stellar "Pumpkin," (featuring vox from Alison Goldfrapp), the duo mix a colorful palate of rhythmic vocals, throbbing backbeats and gravelly electronic textures. Toss in large doses of sexual innuendo and Maxinquaye becomes a libidinous foray into languor and lust. --Nick Heil
