This track from Tricky featuring CASISDEAD immediately draws you in with deep vibes of voyeuristic schadenfreude. It’s like waiting for something bad to happen, but you can’t turn away. It’s violent without having to say it. It’s incredibly sad without having to spell it out. Like a theme for a hero/villain that we love to hate and hate to love, they’ve met a challenge in conveying a rich tapestry of emotions here. “Does It” definitely does it for me.
The track is from UK trip-hop veteran Tricky’s forthcoming EP, The Obia. Alongside CASISDEAD, the EP will feature several other emerging artists – from Kiko King & creativemaze, to WOODJU and Syava.
