Emerging from Bristol in the late 80s, Massive Attack combined genres into something sleek, modern, and classic. These are some of their best.
The new release features collaborations with Young Fathers, Saul Williams and US band Algiers.
So emotive that it almost finished them off, ‘Mezzanine’ proved that Massive Attack are among the best artists of their generation.
The remastered digital version of the influential 'Mezzanine' is also available next Friday, 23 August on 2CD and digital.
The trip-hop icons are currently on tour in support of the 'Mezzanine' reissue and tonight play London's 02 Arena.
The original version of 'Wire' dates from the band's 'Mezzanine' era, but featured in the soundtrack to the 1997 film 'Welcome To Sarajevo'.
Continuing their 20th anniversary celebrations for their seminal release 'Mezzanine', Massive Attack have shared a free music app that allows users to create interactive remixes of the album’s tracks.
The track is taken from the deluxe 20th anniversary reissue of iconic Bristolians' double platinum 'Mezzanine' album.
The Bristol duo also shared they’ll be playing shows with Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser, who lent her vocals to the Mezzanine single ‘Teardrop’.
The show aims to re-imagine 'Mezzanine' using “custom audio reconstructed from the original samples and influences.”
'Mezzanine' went straight to No.1 in the UK and become the group's most commercially successful album to date.
Throughout the 90s, Massive Attack were a pioneering force to be reckoned with, spearheading the Bristolian trip hop scene
