Last month, trip hop pioneer, producer, and vocalist Tricky returned with some brand new music to get us excited again. Bringing together Bristol legends DJ Milo, Luke Harris and a selection of vocal collaborators, Tricky's new Skilled Mechanics project will be his 10th album since the iconic release of his 1995 debut Maxinquaye.
