Image: 1601004 Tricky presents Skilled Mechanics a collaborative project allowing Tricky to work with many different artists. Collaborators on this first edition include lifelong friend DJ Milo (of famed Bristol crew The Wild Bunch) & drummer Luke Harris

Tricky embraces change. He keeps on moving,
keeps on switching up a gear, keeps on mutating…
keeps on evolving. It’s what keeps him vital
as an artist. After moving to Berlin early this
Spring, he immediately started work on a new
musical project called Skilled Mechanics.
In his trademark husky West Country burr, the
Bristol born musician, producer and rapper explains
where the name came from: “It’s from a documentary
about espionage. There was an ex-C.I.A.
agent on this programme speaking about assassins
who were sent abroad by the US to start revolutions
and topple governments. He called them
‘skilled mechanics’. I thought that was a great
name for someone who was a killer basically. The
name was so dark and cynical it just stuck with
Skilled Mechanics is the statement of a true original
British talent - one who will never coast on his
former achievements and will always keep on
changing and adapting to face the future.
