Tricky – False Idols
Thursday, June 13th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tricky – False Idols

Image: 1579805 Tricky is back. Back with a new studio album, False Idols, and his own label (also bearing the False Idols name), but also back in a personal sense. “I was lost for ages”, he says. “I was trying to prove something to people, trying to do something to please other people and also myself at the same time, which is never going to work. To be honest with you, I’ve been floating around since Chris Blackwell and Island. My last two albums, I thought they were good, but I realise now they weren’t. This album is about me finding myself again.”
It opens with a cover of a Van Morrison song, “Somebody’s Sins,” which sees Tricky and vocalist Francesca Belmonte whispering “Jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine” over a sparse groaning bass. The lead single “Parenthesis,” which features a vocals from Peter Silberman of The Antlers, has more rhythmic grunt, which gives a different dimension to the dark gothic atmosphere that pervades the record. No-one does this kind of thing better.
The resemblance to Maxinquaye is undeniable, though the material on False Idols is gentler, more mature. Many of the songs feature artists signed to Tricky’s new label, including 24-year Londoner Francesca Belmonte and Fifi Rong. The album also includes collaborations with Nigeria’s new global star Nneka, the afore-mentioned Peter Silberman. In the months before the album’s release, False Idols will also release an EP “Matter of Time” showcasing the label’s roster on new non-album material produced by Tricky.
Why the name False Idols? “Because there’s so much bollocks going on at the moment mate,” Tricky fires back. “People follow celebrities and read every little thing they do. It’s living vicariously through someone else. Get your own life. All this stuff is false idols. “In this new album I’ll stand behind every track,” Tricky says. “I don’t care whether people like it. I’m doing what I want to do, which is what I did with my first record. That’s what made me who I was in the beginning. If people don’t like it, it don’t matter to me because I’m back where I was.”

Tricky Presents Skilled Mechanics – Beijing To Berlin
Thursday, October 1st, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tricky Presents Skilled Mechanics – Beijing To Berlin

Image: 1600063 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. More news and big plans for Skilled Mechanics in 2016.

TRACKLISTING
A Beijing to Berlin
B Necessary

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.”

With a slew of spooked, sultry tracks emerging online late last
year, Francesca Belmonte slowly but surely emerged as one of
the most fascinating new talents out there today, trafficking in
her very own distinct vein of freaked pop which seamlessly
blended in R n’B, soul, club, electronica, avant-garde and much
more to hypnotic effect. Now, with her debut LP “Anima”,
Belmonte finally unveils that distinctive vision in full, with a vast
and shimmering collection of tracks.
Although Belmonte first got her start singing with legendary
experimental artist Tricky, appearing on his “False Idols” and
“Adrian Thaws” albums and now signed to his own False Idols
imprint, “Anima” sees her develop her own uniquely singular
persona. The sombre honest tones in her vocals are wickedly
broken up by the beats, synths and electronica of her key collaborator,
with the result being a powerful and highly expressive
LP filled with passion.

KEY POINTS
• Produced by Tricky and is the first standalone artist album
release on his False Idols label
• Tipped for 2015 by MOJO and GQ Magazine
• Strong media support to date from Billboard, FACT, Dummy,
The Line Of Best Fit, Daytrotter, Stereogum, Clash, Self-Titled & more
• Features guest vocals from Mykki Blanco
• European tour planned for 2015
