It’s about time–and we’re sorry that this may be late news for some of you: Tricky is back with the Ununiform LP and a new video! The iconic and influential pioneering UK (Bristol) trip hop artist, described as “Europe’s alternative choice in the second half of the ’90s” is currently based in Berlin. Emerging from the realms of Bristol sound systems and Massive Attack, where he rapped in the acclaimed debut album, Blue Lines, Tricky has left his permanent mark on alternative electronic music and the trip hop genre. Maxinquaye, Pre-Millennium Tension, Juxtapose, and Vulnerable are just a few influential records of his astonishing career. His music is noted for it’s dark style that blends cultural influences and genres like hip-hop, electronics and ragga. Ununiform is a 13-track LP featuring many vocal guests like Mina Rose, Asia Argento, Martina Topley-Bird…it’s dark, and trippy and urban!

Remember that teenager in Black Steel?! They haven’t collaborated on one another’s output in fifteen years, but now was the time to work together again! “When you don’t accept death, you don’t really accept life,” says the man…
