Part of London Literature Festival

Admired internationally by some of the biggest names in music, including the late David Bowie, Tricky has released 13 studio albums, selling over two million copies worldwide.

He provided pivotal raps on Massive Attack’s groundbreaking 1992 album Blue Lines and found fame and critical glory with his Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Maxinquaye in 1995. An ever-evolving artist, he is an unmatched pioneer in his field.

His most recent album ununiform is a delicate, storming, intricate creation that sees him take perhaps his most radical step yet – a journey into happiness and contentment. The record shows the legendary British producer confront his legacy, history, family – even death itself.

With support from Leytonstone-born M U R K A G E D A V E whose debut album Murkage Dave Changed My Life saw the singer returning home to East London to witness the changing landscape and gentrification.
