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.

Here in Britain we are slowly returning to work after the extended weekend that comes around every August. The Bank Holiday gives everyone a chance to enjoy a bit of extra time in the summer sun which should get us all ready for the build up to the next break we’ll get at Christmas. In Britain we face the very unusual situation of offices being either depleted or completely empty for much of August and the week over Christmas, but do our holidays make us more motivated at work?

An interesting article on the BBC website explores the freedoms we have with our holidays in Britain compared with the much shorter, and in some cases non existent holidays employees are granted in the USA. It would appear from reading the article that the US is the only country out of the top 21 richest in the world not to impose a legal mandate on employers granting time off. But what does this do to employee motivation? Do us Brits find ourselves more motivated as a result of our holidays or does the time they take up interfere with overall productivity?

There will be many views from many quarters arguing the merits or otherwise of employee holidays, but their effect on motivation should not be ignored. The idea of holiday allowance being awarded on merit or as a result of long service is one that may appeal to some companies as a way of offering an incentive to workers. But rather than motivating junior employees, could this approach just lead to staff resenting those co-workers who have holiday allowances that they don’t?
