A shadowy figure in the truest sense of the word, Adrian Thaws a.k.a. Tricky has never found the light switch. On Ununiform (2017), the British artist, who has been based in Berlin since 2015, reminded us that he is still one of the most gifted painters of the human soul’s darkness. This master of trip-hop is all too familiar with it. He was orphaned at a very young age, was convicted not much later and his only daughter, Mina Mazy, committed suicide in 2019 at the age of 24. Tricky, now in his fifties, continues to do Tricky. But he doesn’t stop there. On Fall Please, the first single from his 14th album Fall to Pieces, he layers his jet black world on a groove that he says he inherited from go-go music, a subgenre of funk originating from Washington in the seventies. “I’ve managed to do something I’ve never been able to do before. It’s my version of pop music, the closest I’ve got to making pop”. Elsewhere Tricky skilfully blurs the tracks, interrupting a song without warning or following a minimalist and oppressive sequence (Close Now) with a melancholic beat (Thinking Of) or a deceptively playful song (Running Off). As always, female vocals are at the heart of his creations. This time it’s the voice of an unknown Polish woman, Marta Złakowska, who he met during his last European tour and hired on the first night, in Krakow, as a backup singer. “I can tell when someone is humble and down to earth. Martha doesn’t care about being famous, she just wants to sing.” Between pure new wave and haunting trip hop, Fall to Pieces brings together more snippets of songs than truly completed compositions (Hate This PainVietnam). A strange but never unpleasant feeling. Fall to Pieces is another MRI scan of the brain of a complex musician who feeds on his inner suffering. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-confessed cretins dynamited rock'n'roll with a charge of distortion and nihilistic lyrics. At the head of these Stooges was Iggy Pop, a sort of obsessive, rebellious Nijinsky, who was destined to become the Godfather of punk rock.
