What To Eat During Your Ski Holiday

Compare for a moment a beach holiday with a ski holiday. The first is all about lying under the sun and doing practically nothing, whereas the latter is taking advantage of as much light as possible by skiing, walking and snowboarding and other activities that require a lot of energy. Besides, a cold environment makes the body burn more calories.

Tricky TicketsTrip-hop’s poster boy is back on tour

are now available and can be bought or sold online at StubHub.com.

In the early and mid–90s, you couldn’t avoid Tricky. The British rapper blended dark electronic music with his signature rhymes, becoming one of the biggest names in the then-emerging trip-hop scene. Today, Tricky has a dearth of impressive records under his belt, a new one coming out (Knowle West Boy) and Tricky tickets are selling fast.

Tricky, better known to his family as Adrian Thaws, was born in Knowle West, Bristol, Avon, England, gigging around in the hip-hop scene before joining the Wild Bunch, which eventually became the much better known Massive Attack. In the -90s, electronica began to take off in the mainstream, with raves, techno and bands like Primal Scream setting the stage in England for the underground to break out into the commercial world. Massive Attack virtually launched the trip-hop genre, along with bands like Portishead. The signature sound was dark, murky electronic music that had a druggy, or “trippy,” feel to it.

After Massive Attack became big with its debut album, Blue Lines, Tricky started issuing singles on his own, eventually releasing a solo debut in 1995. Maxinquaye is still hailed as a triumph for the hip-hop artist, featuring influences from the alt-rock and club world as much as from jazzy hip-hop. The record was very well received, both critically and among the general public, who showed their support by entering the record to number two on the British charts with almost no radio play. At a time when the alternative music scenes were beginning to join the ranks of major commercial artists, it was a surprising turn, proving that music that was infused with true artistic talent didn’t have to languish in cult appreciation without ever being embraced by the mainstream.
