Following two solo albums on his own False Idols imprint,
Tricky announces a new collaborative project. Skilled
Mechanics is a loose collective with rotating membership
that allows Tricky to work with a variety of different artists,
while at the same time pushing his unique vocal talents to
the forefront. The most prominent of these collaborators on
the new record is DJ Milo, who is not only one of his oldest
friends but also the first person he ever recorded with, not
to mention his introduction to The Wild Bunch.
One of the most enigmatic voices on the forthcoming
project belongs to the Chinese rapper and producer Ivy ?
?. Tricky explains: "I was in Beijing for a show and I met
this guy who managed her. He told me that she wanted to
work with me so I asked for her to send a vocal track with
some drums to me so I could do my thing to it. She's so
different! So raw! The strange thing is, I've had the track for
a while but I only just found out that she’s not rapping in
Chinese. I ain’t got a clue what language it is. I have no
idea. It might be completely made up but whatever it is, it
sounds wicked. I’m lucky that with my label, False Idols, I
don’t need to worry about things like this. I'm never going
to have an A&R guy saying to me, ‘We don’t understand
what she’s saying.’ Because we don’t need the support of
commercial radio. It was my real good luck meeting her
and she's definitely going to be on the next Skilled Mechanics
album as well."
