Tricky streaming track off debut Skilled Mechanics album, topped FACT’s best trip-hop albums of all time list

Tricky Skilled Mechanics

Trip-hop veteran Tricky recently launched Skilled Mechanics, “his new collaborative project that will feature a rotating cast of contributors from project to project.” The first Skilled Mechanics album will be self-titled and comes out January 22 via Tricky’s own False Idols label (pre-order). The album was made with DJ Milo and Luke Harris, and features Oh Land, Ann Dao, Ivy 艾菲, Francesca Belmonte, and Xdare. The first single is “Diving Away,” and it’s a re-imagination of Porno For Pyros’ “Porpoise Head.” Listen below.
