The fear, when you hear that an artist has handed last year's album over to remixers, is that they're suffering writer's block and stalling for time.

The reality, in this case, is – in every sense – something else. Tricky's 2008 album Knowle West Boy has been handed over to South Rakkas Crew, a dancehall production team from Florida who have transformed it into a high-voltage electro and sublime space-disco monster. In fact, Knowle West Boy is barely there, but something fantastic has appeared in its place.
