Leena Conquest - Boundaries, Tricky Remix

As with a lot of records I’ve bought over the years this was one I picked up based on a remixer/producer as opposed to for the artist themselves.  In this case it was Leena Conquest – Boundaries, Tricky Remix.

Most people will know Tricky for both his time with Massive Attack and his solo career after that which has now spanned over 20 years.  I think this came out after he’d only released Aftermath (still his best release in my opinion) and Ponderosa.

Leena Conquest’s original version is a great track.  From her laid back vocals to the lyrics (which are probably even more relevant now) over a nice looped funky groove taken from the Average White Band’s 'Stop The Rain'.  The original isn’t a lost record but even if it was I prefer the Tricky mix.  His remix starts with a nice looped melody then kicks in with a tougher beat.  It fits nicely with a lot of the other trip hop I was listening to at the time from Massive Attack, Portishead and labels like Mo’ Wax and Ninja Tune.

Just Googling around this track I didn't realise MC Mello had released so much music on this label. Also it was Rodney Hunter's 1st production - Editors Note.

Is this record lost? Yes.
