TRICKY (with DJ MUGGS and GREASE) - JUXTAPOSE
For Tricky’s fifth album Juxtapose he teamed with DJ Muggs
(the architect of Cypress Hill’s sound, a clear precedent for
Tricky’s) and DMX’s producer, Grease. This album is quite
obviously a Tricky album: a highly eccentric artist, an unusual
mix of collaborators, an entirely new expression and message.
Tricky continues to evolve at his own irascible pace, a riddle
always about to reveal itself. His journey remains equally
fascinating and frustrating. Two tracks with DJ Muggs find
their way to the only single “For Real” (“Pop Muzik”, a cover
of the song by M) and the Japanese release (“Who”).
