Tricky co-wrote and rapped on three tracks: "Daydreaming", "Five Man Army" and "Blue Lines".

> ... Tricky rapped on and co-authored a trio of tracks on Massive's alluring 'Blue Lines' LP. And it was said that 'Aftermath' might have formed part of that LP, and also the upcoming solo LP of former Massive man and Soul II Soul legend Nellee Hooper. <
(NME, January 22 1994)

> He gave them a song he'd written called 'Daydreaming' and asked if Shara Nelson could sing. They thought it was another of Tricky's funny little plans but when they heard the result... well, it was amazing.<
(Melody Maker, January 21 1995)

10. Light My Fire (live) 3:16

Tricky co-wrote and rapped on 'Karmacoma' (same lyrics as 'Overcome') and 'Eurochild' (some lyrics from 'Hell is round the corner').

"Eurochild is essentially a cover version (with added lyrics by 3D and Tricky) of a song called “Cheetah” originally performed by fellow Bristol band The Insects. The Insects would also contribute on the production side of things for Eurochild and also Karmacoma."
(Massive Attack website)

> Tricky: "I see things very differently to them and it's quite frustrating. All I did was write lyrics and a beat was given to me to rap over. My way of thinking was always alternative to them. One day I'll probably work with them again but there's animosity between us... I've got animosity towards them for saying they co-wrote 'Karmacoma' when I did all the music and most of the words, and they've got animosity towards me for doing my own thing. It's something you can't put your finger on." <

> In fairness, May's "Post" was not a trip hop album by any stretch of the imagination, but it shared with the premier trip hoppers a taste for the re-knotting of idioms that must have greatly appealed to them. That Björk herself greatly appealed to Tricky was to be revealed later in the year, via a musically royal romance. <
(Melody Maker, December 23/30 1995)

> Formerly romantically involved with professional kookstress Björk, he now refers to her as "a vampire".<

  12" / Robs Records 12Rob51 / 1996

A1. Smoking Beagles 5:03

B2. Smoking Beagles (Instrumental) 5:00

'Smoking Beagles' is written by Williams, Goodwin, Williams and Tricky, produced by Sub Sub. It can also be found as a b-side on the Tricky Kid single (CD 1). The record includes a piece of paper that says: > Sub Sub requires permanent male vocalist, send tapes to: DFM, PO Box 31, Manchester M20 8GG. < (take a look here!)

A promo white label (see promo discography) of this recording tells an interesting story how Smoking Beagles was recorded, and - ironically - just after Tricky left the studio it went up in smoke...

4. I wanna know * 4:04

* written by Cherry/Tricky/Saunders
   produced by Tricky and Mark Saunders

>  Over the strains of Pleistocene guitar riffing and a funky, John Bonham - like beat, Neneh Cherry's spunky voice comes bubbling forth.  ...  Tricky cracks a smile so big his eyes scrunch up into narrow slits. "It'd be huge!" he gushes, picking up his joint again. "It's poptastic!"  ...   "They got scared" he recalls with a laugh. "They thought it sounded too much like me." <
(Spin, May 1998)




   Cath Coffey: Mind The Gap
  CD Japan / Island PHCR 1852 / 1997 
  LP Japan / Island PHCR_1852-12_/_1997

01. Tell Me 4:01
02. Say What You Say 4:26

04. Games 5:13
05. Angel 5:12

09. Something About You 5:41
10. Giddy Up 5:08
11. Summer Nights * 6:52
12. Strange Fruit 4:50
13. Tell Me (A Guy Called Gerald's "Classified Mix") 4:44

* produced by Tricky, additional vocals by Tricky

This album is only released in Japan so far. "Summer Nights" is a cover version of the 'Grease' song, written by Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey (check out cover me for details). It seems there are two versions existing, because a college radio station played a different version in '96 (see Tricky radio). The album version is slower and has Tricky's vocals, the other version features Wayne Jobson on vocals. Cath Coffey often performed live with Tricky, sometimes using lyrics from here songs Something About You (for example Ghetto Youth for Sessions At West 1998 on You Tube) and Doll On A Music Box (on the infamous "Andrew Smith song" at Elysee Montmartre, Paris in 1997, see here).

> Tricky: "This is something I haven't released yet." 
A sick, slow, depraved version of the Grease classic "Summer Nights" comes blasting  out of the speakers, all gongs and Neubauten crashes. The sultry diva Cath Coffey, heard on Nearly God, trades verses with Jamaican vocalist Wayne Jobson, getting physical in a way that Olivia Newton-John couldn't imagine. <

> He got into the Wild Bunch through his friendship with Milo, Massive Attack's original DJ who left before 'Blue Lines' because, as Tricky puts it,"He's that fuckin' militant about music he just didn't want to fuck with record companies. <

  12" US / Durban Poison DPROWL 12001 / 1998 (?) (clear vinyl, unofficial, limited)

A. DJ Milo & Tricky: God's Bass
B. London Posse: Style

This is an unreleased song from DJ Milo and Tricky, you can listen to it on YouTube (thanks to Ferdinand!). I don't know the year and label of it, but guessing from the catalogue number it was released on Tricky's own label Durban Poison, as it has a similar catalogue number as "Can't Freestyle" (DPRO WL 12002). So I'm also guessing that it was released shortly before Can't Freestyle, probably also in 1998. The vinyl is clear and comes in a standard black die cut cover. See scans of the vinyl here.

A1. Grace Jones & Tricky: Clandestine Affair (vocal) 5:52
A2. Grace Jones & Tricky: Clandestine Affair (instrumental) 5:40
B. DJ Milo & Tricky: We know4:36

Although it doesn't say on the vinyl I'm pretty sure that the label is Durban Poison and the release year is 1998. It has a similar catalogue number as "God's Bass" and "Can't Freestyle", and at least the latter was definitely released in 1998. So this was probably released shortly afterwards. Also the b-side "We know" was released in 1998 on the Half-Baked soundtrack and another Grace Jones collaboration ("Cradle to the Grave", see below) was also released in 1998. DJ Milo also lists this on his website, but with the year 1997. The vinyl is clear and comes in a standard white sleeve and black cover. See scans of the vinyl here.

There are unofficial vinyls existing with the numbers 12001 ("Can't Freestyle"), 12002 ("God's Bass") and 12004 ("Clandestine Affair"). So I wonder: what is 12003????

> ... A record deal with his own label, Durban Poison, for 80s disco queen Grace Jones, who he's got duetting with him over a warped jungle backing. "She's got an aura," he enthuses. "And she's as confused as I am. She's perfect. <

A. Cradle To The Grave (The Hurricane Mix #1) 9:56
B. Cradle To The Grave (The Hurricane Mix #2) 7:54

This is a testpress for a promo that was released 2 weeks later (see below). At least that's what the paper tucked on it says (see scans of it here). The vinyl itself has no writing or anything on it and doesn't have a cover, just a plain white sleeve. The catalogue number (G828) is carved in the vinyl, also "mastered by Trotone PA 9/98", the latter referring to the release date September 1998.

  12" US / White Label G828 / October 1998

A. Cradle To The Grave (The Hurricane Mix #1) 9:56
B. Cradle To The Grave (The Hurricane Mix #2) 7:54

See scans of this release here. This track should be released on Durban Poison, but was never released officially. The Hurricane Mix was done (probably in 1997 already) by DJ Emily, as you can read here. But it is also released on Danny Tenaglia's "Greates Remixes Vol.3" in 2005 (see below). 
The title of the song is a bit of a mystery, too. While the record says only "The Hurricane Mix" most people called it "Cradle To The Grave", and that's also the name of the track on the Danny Tenaglia remix album. The song was then officially released with the name "Hurricane" 10 years later on her album "Hurricane" (see below). The mix is totally different, though.
Back in 1999 you could listen to another remix of 'Cradle To The Grave' on House of Blues Tricky radio!!! There is also another promo 12" existing with another song named "Clandestine Affair" (see above). Maybe there is even more material sitting on a shelf somewhere and never released :(

Warrior Charge are Perry Melius (drums) and Wayne Nunes (bass), who have played with Tricky live and in the studio for about 10 years! Also Hawkman is featured on the album (track "The Hawk"), who was Tricky's vocalist in 2001. I've listed the tracks from the Japanese version, because it was released earlier. The UK version has a slightly different order of tracks (see discogs) and instead of the song "Where have you been (feat. Noel McKoy)" it has "Bad Fruit (feat. Jeb Loy Nichols and Shaila Prospere)".
The female vocals on the track "You don't know me" are provided by Ilana Lorraine. It samples a part of "Feed me", if I'm not mistaken.

Who did the mixes is a bit of a mystery, because sometimes a DJ Emily is mentioned, but the same mix is also released on a Danny Tenaglia remix album (see above). The song has vocals by Tricky and is written by Grace Jones and Tricky.

1. Dead Editors (feat. Roots Manuva)
2. Ritual Spirit (feat. Azekel)
3. Voodoo In My Blood (feat. Young Fathers)
4. Take It There (feat. Tricky & 3D) 4:31

This is the first track Tricky did with Massive since 1994! Probably it was recorded in 2012 in Paris, as 3D posted this picture with him and Tricky recording. In an interview with Resident Advisor Tricky said that he is thinking about letting them release the track or not. Obviously he decided to do it!
There's also a video for the song (go to the videography for details, watch it on Vevo or You Tube). You can buy the download version of the EP on Amazon, iTunes or other places, it's also on Spotify. It was later released as a VERY limited edition 12" with handfinished covers on February 3 (see below) and then as a regular 12" on March 4. Click here for more pictures of regular release, which seems to be limited also (at least that's what Juno says here). As you can read on Pitchfork, another EP and album will be released later this year. It doesn't say if there will be any more tracks with Tricky.
The release of this EP came as a surprise and very quick, the story behind it is this: On January 20 Massive Attack released an interactive iPhone app that features snippets of the four tracks from the EP. The app is called Fantom and with it you can remix the tracks, read more about it here. 3D also hinted to a physical release of the original mixes on an EP called "Ritual Spirit" by posting a picture of the vinyl cover on Intagram. Then on January 22 the EP leaked already: this website says that a dutch online store (Mega Media) accidentily sold the download. They removed it quickly, but some people were able to buy it. So probably they decided to release it very quickly afterwards. 

Tricky performed the track live with Massive Attack in Berlin on February 18, as a guest at the Massive Attack concert. You can watch their performance on You Tube. The day before they also played in Berlin, but without Tricky. Martina took over his part with different lyrics, you can watch that video here.

2. Ritual Spirit (feat. Azekel)

4. Take It There (feat. Tricky & 3D) 4:31

This is the first track Tricky did with Massive since 1994! It was released on January 28 as a digital download (see above). On February 3 it was released physically on a very limited 12", which has a complicated story behind it: The release is limited to 300 copies: 200 were sold at the launch of the Ritual Spirit exhibition at the Lazarides Editions gallery in London on February 3, with 4 different sleeves (so each sleeve-design limited to 50). These 200 were hand-finished by 3D and therefore each sleeve is unique. Here you can read about this event and see some photos of 3D working on the sleeves, also hereThe exhibition was then moved to The Store in Berlin from February 17 to 20, where the other 100 were sold, as you can here (Massive Attack played two gigs in Berlin on February 17 and 18).
It says here that there were 6 different sleeves (
6 times 5 is 300, so it would make sense), but I think that they didn't sell completely different designs at The Store in Berlin, because I saw one on ebay that looked like one from London. I've gathered some pics of the different sleeves and vinyls here. It was released as a regular, not limited 12", later on March 4 (see above), you can order it here
Tricky performed the track live with Massive Attack in Berlin on February 18, as a guest at the Massive Attack concert. You can watch their performance on
You Tube. The day before they also played in Berlin, but without Tricky. Martina took over his part with different lyrics, you can watch that video here.

This album by Belarus rapper Tony Tonite has one track with Tricky's vocals. Maybe some tracks are produced by him, because Wasabeat lists these songs as "feat. Tricky", but this is the only website, so I don't know. You can buy the album on iTunes or other places or listen to the whole album on Soundcloud. Here is the official website of Tony Tonite, here is his Facebook page and here is a photo with him and Tricky back in 2014.

A. Dear Friend (feat. James Massiah)
B. Dear Friend (feat. James Massiah)  music: Take It There Instr.

There are no Tricky vocals on there, but the b-side uses the instrumental of "Take It There", which is also written by Tricky (released in january, see above). That's why he's credited as a writer here, too ("written by Thaws, Dickinson, Massiah, Del Naja"). The vinyl is labeled wrong, so the b-side is labeled as the a-side and viceversa, as you read in the comments on
This vinyl is limited to 1.000 copies: 300 (numbered) were sold at their Bristol show on September 3, 700 (unnumbered) were sold later online, as you can also read on
"Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies sold exclusively at the Massive Attack The Downs concert Bristol UK, Saturday 3rd September 2016. Due to poor weather conditions at the concert the remaining vinyl were later sold at Friendly Records and Idle Hands (both independent record shops in Bristol) for the same price of £20.00 and limited to one per person.
A further 700 un-numbered copies (Massive Attack Feat. James Massiah* - Dear Friend) were later sold through The Vinyl Factory website on 30 Sep 2016, stating this is limited to 1000 copies."

The vinyl was sold at the Vinyl Factory for £20, but of course  it sold out in a few hours. A digital version will probably be released later, as you can read here.
