West Country music pioneers Massive Attack have been quietly resting since their last release in 2010
With the aside of a string of festival dates in 2014, the Bristol two piece have been on appearances. However, the announcement of a full European tour will excite the bones of fans, as with the news comes the quiet assurance of fresh material.
Their most recent album 'Heligoland' featured collaborations from the likes of TV On The Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe and Elbow frontman, Guy Garvey, proving the group's ability to amplify their own talent by honing in on the strengths of others.
Spread over three decades, there have been few acts who have impacted the musical stratosphere as much as Massive Attack, demonstrated not only in their back catalogue, but also in the way other artists are able to take their work and interpret it further.
Remixes like the following show what can be born from a drop of Massive Attack mixed with another producer's own flare.
Massive Attacl - "Inertia Creeps" (Manic Street Preachers Version)
Massive Attack - "Paradise Circus" (Burial Remix)
Nas - "The Don" (Massive Attack Remix)
