With their first couple of releases in 2005 TRICKSKI quickly won the respect of big names such as GILLES PETERSON, MARK PRITCHARD, CARL CRAIG, PETER KRUDER and of course JAZZANOVA. TRICKSKI’s hugely successful 12″ series for Sonar Kollektiv, Members of the Trick, now culminates in a compilation CD featuring all the members so far represented on the maxis. TRICKSKI aka YANNICK LABBE and DANIEL BECKER have shown with the MOTT series that their skills lie not only in DJing and producing – they also have a talent for A+R as their Members… series has brought to light some brilliant up and coming stars.
The compilation is packed with exclusive tracks and tunes from the 12″ series which are now available for the first time on CD. All the Members of the Trick so far are represented on the compilation. One special highlight is the bonus track Journeyman by FORSS in its TRICKSKI remix – this was previously only available on a Japanese release and actually marks the first remix YANNICK and DANIEL ever worked together on. Plus track by SOLOMUN, the FUTURE BEAT INVESTIGATORS, LEROY & DARNELL and SCHMUTZIG DE MUTZIG aka IRFANE from OUTLINES makes this a really fresh compilation.
With artwork once again by DANIEL BECKER’s own design agency, Goldener Westen, and almost every track being available for the first time on CD, this compilation is ideal for fans of MOTT thus far as well as people who are still looking to find out what TRICKSKI are all about. This round-up of the Members of the Trick story so far shows just what a high standard TRICKSKI have managed to set with this pioneering series. And listening to the compilation, one can only hope that it won’t be long until the second Members of the Trick series gets going.
