Alison Goldfrapp has revealed that rapper Tricky was “tricky” to actually work with.
The former Goldfrapp frontwoman added vocals to the former Massive Attack star’s 1995 Maxinky LP, “Pumpkin,” and wouldn’t say why it was difficult, but it was “strong.” “It was an experience,” he said.
The “Oh La La” hitmaker recalled to Electronic Sound:
“I sent him something with his voice completely slowed down and he liked it.”
When asked how it was in the studio with Tricky, 55 (real name Adrian Nicholas Matthews Sowes), she said: “He’s a complete character. He’s really interesting.”
He introduced me to a lot of great music and opened another door for me. And he can be really tricky!
I mean, yeah, he’s intense. I’ve seen him live since I worked with him and he was incredible to watch. He definitely went his own way. ”
The 57-year-old singer, who is currently active as a solo artist and released her debut solo LP, The Love Invention, in May, is also active as a backing singer for Bryan Ferry, and is good at Bryan Ferry. I have seen her dance and sing in front of an audience. She was “really nervous and dizzy” and left her at her feet.
she said: “Brian was like, ‘I have this song… I can do this, I can do that…’ He heard me and started singing and moving like he was doing…and I was totally like, ‘Oh my god! That’s fucking Bryan Ferry!’
I was completely surprised as I suddenly realized it was actually him. He was so tense that his body was dizzy and he could not speak. I remember being amazed by his wonderful voice. If you listen to it in that room without applying any effects and see that movement…”
