Massive Attack are an English trip hop group formed in 1988 in Bristol, consisting of Robert “3D” Del Naja, Grant “Daddy G” Marshall and formerly Andy “Mushroom” Vowles (“Mush”).
Massive Attack’s debut album Blue Lines was released in 1991, with the single “Unfinished Sympathy” reaching the charts and later being voted the 63rd greatest song of all time in a poll by NME. 1998’s Mezzanine, containing “Teardrop”, and 2003’s 100th Window charted in the UK at number 1. Both Blue Lines and Mezzanine feature in Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The group has won numerous music awards throughout their career, including a Brit Award—winning Best British Dance Act, two MTV Europe Music Awards, and two Q Awards. Massive Attack have released five studio albums that have sold over 11 million copies worldwide.

Bristol, at the end of the eighties. A new musical genre musical inspired by break-beat appears on the scene: trip-hop. Massive Attack threw down a utopian gauntlet to all the groups that have tried to reproduce their style. High in the sky, their dark resonances can be heard without interruption. Since their hit Teardrop, twenty years ago, they have been combining groove, soul and hip-hop sounds before gradually turning towards deeper shades of electro. Pioneers in their use of live visuals, in which neon and led lighting share the stage with activist messages, it’s in their latest album Ritual Spirit that their inimitable trip-hop takes on new forms. It gives new meaning to a legend that is in no danger of falling into oblivion.

Buried a hundred times, resurrected a hundred times: despite defections which mutilated the group and would have signed the death warrant of any other project, in 2016 Massive Attack is still commanding the most hypnotic bass lines of the modern era, with some of its greatest heralds even returning to its ranks to reinforce the original duo of 3D and Daddy G. This is a pantheon counting Tricky, Martina Topley-Bird and Horace Andy among its members, and which gains as much from the Bristol golem as it gives in return. Massive Attack’s rare public appearances, presiding over its countless twilight hymns, have been the subject of avid contemplation for 25 years; also directly in touch with reality, they tirelessly use striking devices to show us our societies’ most obscure faults.

These trailblazers of the UK’s 1980s Bristol trip-hop movement produced one of the most influential sounds of the Nineties, combining hip-hop’s urgent rhythms with catchy melodies, creative sampling, bursts of club reggae, and the industrial-strength gloom symptomatic of the end of the last century. Massive Attack draw on the Bristol scene’s original collaborative vibe: in 1983, a collection of singers, rappers, DJs, and producers came together as the “Wild Bunch”. Out of this creative froth Massive Attack was formed in 1988 by Robert “3D” Del Naja and Grant “Daddy G” Marshall with the support of a certain Neneh Cherry. A few singles were followed by the legendary Blue Lines in 1991.
Massive Attack has continued to evolve throughout its career with a succession of incredible artists including rapper/actor Tricky, vocalists Horace Andy and Shara Nelson, Everything But The Girl’s Tracy Thorn, Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins, and even Sinéad O’Connor. A sublime collection of songs and duos.
