Knowle West Boy by Tricky
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Domino Recording Co
The trip-hop pioneer has yet to top his stunning 1995 debut, but Knowle West Boy sees him flirting with all the right elements. In typical Tricky fashion, beats break around seductive giggles, groans and sexy interplay with various sirens. "Past Mistake" resurrects the ominous beauty of Maxinquaye as he masochistically pours out his love woes by harmonizing with ex-girl Lubna. He expands his sound as well, mixing bluesy rock, rapid reggae, hardcore hip-hop, symphonic punk and even a Kylie Minogue cover ("Slow") with the signature apocalyptic bounce he continues to keep relevant.
