BeatBoxx Reviews - TRICKY

Tricky, is an English trip hop musician in the British music scene. He is noted for a whispering lyrical style that is half-rapped, half-sung. As a producer and a musician, he is noted for a dark, rich and layered sound. Culturally, Tricky bridges white and black Britain, particularly in his fusion of rock and hip hop, high art and pop culture. His debut album Maxinquaye was nominated for the Mercury Prize and voted Album of the Year by NME Magazine.

I think he has an amazing voice and sound that is really represents whats missing in the current music sound in the UK. Electro is getting overated and overhyped its good to see old skool peeps like Tricky making their mark again. Just brings out the edge and gritty vibe that is much needed in the scene right now! Get his new album! its DOPE, heavy, music with balls (which is rare these days): "Knowle West Boy - Tricky - OUT NOW!

It gets BRAP BRAP BRAP BRA... 3.5/5

Check out the music video: "Council Estate"
