Thread: Tricky Vs. The Gravediggaz--the Hell Ep

  1. #1

    Default Tricky Vs. The Gravediggaz--the Hell Ep


    RELEASED:1995
    TRACKLISTING & NOTES:

    1. HELL IS ROUND THE CORNER (ORIGINAL MIX)-
    produced by Tricky. vocals by Tricky & Martina Topley Bird.

    2. HELL IS ROUND THE CORNER (THE HELL & WATER MIX)
    produced by Tricky. vocals by Tricky & Martina Topley Bird.

    3. PSYCHOSIS
    produced by Tricky & The RZA. vocals by Tricky & The Grim Reaper.

    4. TONITE IS A SPECIAL NITE (CHAOS MASS CONFUSION MIX)
    produced by Tricky, Dobie & The RZA. vocals by Tricky and The Gravediggaz
    a.k.a. The RZA, The Grim Reaper and The Gatekeeper.


    tracks 1 & 2 are Tricky tracks that don't have anything to do with The Gravediggaz. straight forward trip hop type stuff. track 3 sounds like ghosts moaning, or muffled voices of some sort, looped over and over with Grim Reaper chanting in the background, "Falling! Slowly Falling! Jesus Christ!". then an odd off kilter beat, which sounds like Tricky made it, comes in. this collabo track sounds more like Tricky than Gravediggaz. track 4 is the reason you want to get this though. Tricky's lethargic dub sounds mix with RZA's horrorcore to produce some demented hip hop. i can't tell if it's RZA or Grim who keeps saying throughout the track, "Throw your hands up in the air, today is a special day!". RZA speaks a little at the intro. then Gatekeeper comes in to drop some lyrics. Grim's next with some odd rhymes:

    "...slow escapade
    they wanna get paid
    after the show
    away we go
    to the mo-
    tel
    oh well..."

    Tricky then comes in at then end with some tripped out effects on his voice. the beat warps, echoes, stutters and then goes back to normal to heighten the effect. basically he sounds lit and there's a clip of him chanting in the background, "hmmmm, haaaaa, press record!"

    i give this a 4.5 out of 5. one of my favorite records!

    Phsycosis is one of my favourite Wu colabs ever. Too Poetic and Tricky just make that the most crazy sound ever. The beat is so plain but just so evil. When tricky goes on about "See it in the face again space chasing alien. And he shall be called Adrian so it seems Im the Devil's Son. Out of breath and on the run. Jesus Christ dont wanna be me first you fall and then you see me...... Jesus Christ is falling slowly falling" Its just so evil. Tricky is insane and Poetic sounds brilliant with him
