For many years now, Dean Bagar aka Tricky D has been honing his special fusion of reggae, latin and electronic music.
A regular on BBE since his label debut on 2010 compilation ‘Revolution N°5’, Tricky D released the album ‘First Trip’ with his band ‘Los Transatlanticos’ in 2012. Solo offering ‘Equanimity’ followed in 2014, and recent singles ‘Fight You With The Love’ and ‘The Square’ have both found themselves on heavy rotation worldwide.
Showcasing a carefully chosen selection from his impressive library of remixes, many of which were commissioned by BBE, this album demonstrates the versatility of this prolific and talented producer beautifully. An album of two halves, ‘Remixes’ contains both Tricky D’s heavier dub/dubstep material, as evidenced by his fiery versions of Fogata Sounds & Tippa Irie’s ‘Loud & Clear’ and Vadim & Sena’s ‘Boneshaker’ alongside touching, sensitive reworks of Sacha Vee’s ‘Hey Sugar’ and ‘Fight Back’ by Humus.
An understated music-maker with a unique approach to production, Tricky D’s scrapbook of versions stacks up beautifully as a piece of art all its own.
