Trip Hop, a term Tricky soon grew to despise, has become so omnipresent over the years, that its easy to forget how outside the mainstream it once was. Trickys 1995 debut >Maxinquaye< is one of those albums that brought the music to the forefront, entering the UK charts at #2 on its release despite a shocking lack of airplay, and ending up topping many, many year-end lists. An essential album for any collection if ever there was one - pressed on 180 grams audiophile vinyl, comes in gatefold sleeve including insert.


Around the time Tricky emerged as a solo artist, independent of the Massive Attack collective, he was asked to describe his music.
"If you want to dance to it, go ahead. If you want to sit in a darkened room and let it fill your head with strange thoughts, that's fine too".

"Trip Hop", a term Tricky soon grew to despise, has become so omnipresent over the years, that it's easy to forget how outside the mainstream it once was.

But despite its being a harbinger of one of the most prevalent music styles of the nineties, it exists outside of trends and time and still stands as a powerhouse of musical innovation almost twenty years on.

Vocalists Martina Topley-Bird and Goldfrapp work as modern day female Pied Pipers, luring you into Tricky's dark, menacing, haunting and overall disturbing world: a ghostly Hades painted in vivid imagery by Tricky's lisping and lilting flow on top of tantalizing beats. [info from mov]
