Dark and dirty with Massive Attack on Mezzanine

As I posted a while ago Massive Attack has a Youtube channel and you should listen to it often to see where modern electronic music evolved from. One album in particular had and continues to have a lot of influence is their third one: Mezzanine.

Mezzanine is the third studio album by English trip hop group Massive Attack, released on 20 April 1998. It was produced by Neil Davidge along with the group. The album was released on Virgin Records.

The entire album was provided on their website for legal download many months before the physical release was announced. It was one of the first major uses of the MP3 format by a commercial organisation.

Released in 1998 it marks a significant departure from their other albums in that it focuses on the dark sound that the band always made present. It has made many appearances in pop culture from the Matrix, to West Wing, and even the TV series House.
