MUSIC MONDAY: “Daydreaming” – Massive Attack and the Birth of Trip Hop (LISTEN)

Written by Good Black News

February 1, 2021

Massive Attack was formed in Bristol, England, in the late 1980s, coalescing out of a sound-system culture of D.J.s and musicians.

It is hard to overstate the impact his collective, originally known as The Wild Bunch, would go on to have on electronic and popular music. They would knit together previously disparate styles of hip-hop, post-punk, dub reggae, electronica and just enough pop to provide melodic discipline and skeletal structure.

Their first three records Blue Lines, Protection, and Mezzanine were part of the vanguard of artists that created the “Trip Hop” movement. The group launched Tricky and collaborated with others like Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins and the reggae songwriter Horace Andy.

This collection is devoted to their work and to those that have in many ways come through the proverbial door that they kicked open.

Enjoy. Stay safe, sane, and kind.
