Straight outta Knowle West, Tricky’s always been about culturally mixing it up whether that be society, art or music.  Not one to be defined by colour or genre (or even gender for that matter!), he’s boldly gone where the rest of the brothers won’t go to, constantly re-inventing himself and his sound.  We’re talking dark, dense, rich and layered, incorporating all the world has to offer and nothing and I mean nothing is off limits. And just when you think you got him figured out he makes a left turn and leaves you choking on his dust!  How else would the Tricky Kid end up with South Rakkas Crew? Born in Jamaica, grown in Toronto, settled in Florida, South Rakkas Crew draw on key urban influences from the past four decades, stick ‘em in a Carribean blender then throw in some cosmic keyboard riffs and killa b-lines for flavour. Tricky Meets South Rakkas Crew is a version excursion of ten tracks from Tricky’s ‘Knowle West Boy’, where electro-dancehall collides with Tricky’s whispering ‘sprechgesang’ lyrical style to create a dancehall filler radio killer soundtrack thriller that seems to touch on all the happening urban sounds from around the globe.   (DOMINO RECORDS)

Οι (καναδο-τζαμαϊκανοί) South Rakkas Crew μιξάρουν το τελευταίο album του Tricky 'Knowle West Boy'. Κυκλοφορεί κανονικά στις 30 Νοεμβρίου. Ακούγεται αρκετά σκληρό, με μια κάπως εφηβική επιθετικότητα -(αλλά τουλάχιστον δεν σε κάνει να κοιμάσαι, όπως το original album). Αδιόρθωτος!
