Following the acclaimed release of ‘Maxinquaye Reincarnated’ in October - Tricky is playing a European tour in March 2024 of the same name. We are pleased to announce a one-off UK exclusive date at Roundhouse on 14th March 2024. He will perform tracks from the original ‘Maxinquaye’ album - alongside the reincarnated tracks - as well as other music from his catalogue.
‘Maxinquaye’ remains one of the most groundbreaking records in British music history. Upon its release in 1995, it was met with resounding critical acclaim receiving near perfect scores from music critics across the board - NME said the record was “... unprecedented, spellbinding and revealed something new with every listen,” and Pitchfork called it “An unrepeatable record so unbelievably wrong it could only be right.”
It continues to be sited for its impact on music being a mainstay of “Greatest Albums Of All Time” lists such as NME's 2013 list of the 500 greatest albums, Uncut Magazine’s 2016 200 Greatest Albums, Q Magazine's 100 Greatest British albums, Mojo's 100 Modern Classics, Rolling Stone's ‘Essential Recordings of the 90s’ to name but a few.
Even David Bowie took it upon himself to write a letter to Tricky in the August of 1995 proclaiming “I've loved Maxinquaye for some time.”
With creative control of the ‘Maxinquaye Reincarnated’ project, Tricky started reworking tracks from the original album in 2022. Six were released for the first time on ‘Maxinquaye (Reincarnated)’ making it the natural evolution of the original release. Upon releasing the record Tricky remarked “If you’re an artist or a musician and you look back at your old stuff, if you don't think it’s dated then you're either stood still or you're satisfied with what you've done.” ‘Maxinquaye (Reincarnated)’ contains rarities and brand new versions of tracks many of which have not been officially released before.
Upon announcing the tour Tricky simply said “IT’S THE RIGHT TIME!”
