Tricky's Dark Comeback
  • WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2013

Tricky (formerly of Massive Attack) has released a new song called "Nothing's Changed," featuring vocals from Francesca Belmonte. It seems that with his return, he will be joining the current lineup of melancholic trip-hop-inspired techno and dubstep that's been consistently great lately (think: SBTRKT, Ed Rush & Optical, Shigeto, even Monarchy), with heartbreaking cello and a high-pitched rhythm reminiscent of the cold emptiness in "Idioteque."

Tricky was a pioneer of trip-hop, and it's good to have him back, because if electronica is going to survive as a genre, it's vital to continue developing the darker side of things. You know, to balance out Ra Ra Riot's "Dance With Me" and Ke$ha. Thom Yorke and Trent Reznor are currently working on their own murky techno projects, and with The Knife's comeback album on the horizon, it looks like it's going to be an excellent season for fans of the moody dancefloor.



Tricky's new album, False Idols, comes out May 28th on his new label of the same name.
