The Antlers – “Crest” (Tricky Remix)
The first two albums from Bristol trip-hop pioneer Tricky sounded absolutely revolutionary back in the mid-’90s, but after years of diminishing returns (and after being exploded in The Fifth Element), he disappeared into the pop-culture wilderness for a few years. In recent weeks, though, Tricky has shown up in a couple of unexpected places. Last month, he appeared (with Gangsta Boo, of all people) or a remix of Zebra Katz’s forbidding internet dance-rap hit “I’ma Read.” And now he’s remixed “Crest,” a recent tune from lush Brooklyn indie rockers the Antlers, injecting it with throbbing sensual dubwise menace. It’s pretty great, and you can download it below.
