As part of the first London Sundance Festival, Bristolian trip-hop icon Tricky will be sharing the stage with Martina Topley-Bird for the first time in 15 years to perform his seminal debut album in full. Initially coming to prominence for co-writing and featuring on 3 tracks from Massive Attack’s iconic ‘Blue Lines' in '91, he followed up four years later as a solo artist with 'Maxinquaye. Featuring guest vocals from his then-girlfriend Martina Topley-Bird and Alison Goldfrapp, the album reached number 3 in the UK album chart and was nominated for the Mercury Music Award (only to be beaten by the Bristol neighbours, Portishead), before going on to sell over 500,000 copies Worldwide.
