Tricky: Maxinquaye

Emerging from the Bristol ‘trip hop’ scene, Tricky may not have the effortless cool of his collaborators Massive Attack, or the muted slickness of Portishead, but for encapsulating the murky melting pot of Bristol in the early 90’s, this really is the album to beat.

Dark and sensual, blending punk, hip-hop and rock with a deep, rich production, ‘Maxinquaye’ remains Tricky’s high water mark, and is sure to be an engaging and rewarding listen on the big speakers.
