Ritual Spirit is an EP by British trip hop group Massive Attack, released on 28 January 2016. It features trip hop artist Tricky for the first time since the release of Protection in 1994, and also features Scottish hip-hop group Young Fathers, London rapper Roots Manuva and singer Azekel
Massive Attack contacted relative newcomer, London based soul singer, Azekel Adesuyi, in 2015 to collaborate together on Ritual Spirit which would go on to be the title track of the EP released in Januray 2016. On the subsequent tour that followed, Azekel joined Massive Attack on stage to perform Ritual Spirit each night of the tour. It was Azekel first time as part of a major live tour.

After 2010's moderately well received Heligoland, trip hop legends Massive Attack took quite a bit of time off before making a comeback. The British duo has a very busy year ahead of them, however, and we shouldn't have to wait long to hear a new full-length release. Azekel doesn't fall behind, delivering on a standout title track.

Massive Attack's new EP is a welcome reminder that the group have always excelled as both producers and curators. While retaining their old sound, they offer carefully judged and effective updates, including appearances by Young Fathers, Tricky, and Azekel. Massive Attack were always equally as good producers as they were curators; it's promising that, as much of their old sound as they've retained, they've kept this as well.
