Biography

Attica Blues were a 90’s trip-hop band, with a trademark sound including downtempo yet funky rhythms, obscure jazz samples and soulful female vocals. Their sound was a perfect mixture of past and actual sounds.

The band was formed in 1993 by Tony Nwachukwu and Charlie Dark. Charlie Dark was a part time journalist and DJ and had been approached by James Lavelle to produce and engineer tracks for his Mo Wax record label.

Their first release, Vibes, Scribes and Dusty 45’s Ep, contained the down tempo classic Contemplating Jazz. Featuring the vocals of third member Roba El-Essawy, Attica Blues’ sound contained the trademark trip-hop aspects like heavy beats, vocals and deep dark atmospheres. They released a follow up album, Blueprint.

Attica Blues were also often solicited for remixing and producing.

After the Mo Wax album Blueprint, they released a second album, Test,don’t Test on Sony Records.
