Massive Attack - Karmacoma: Wikipedia Album Entry
"Karmacoma" is a single by British trip-hop collective Massive Attack, released as a single from their second album Protection + 5xBonus in March 1995. It is a rap featuring vocals from band member 3D and guest artist Tricky. Tricky also recorded his own version of "Karmacoma," renamed "Overcome" for his debut studio album, Maxinquaye.
Samples in the song include; the melodic refrain (e.g. 0:54) is taken from the opera prince igor by Russian composer Alexander Borodin. The bass line sample featured is the same bass line used by Serge Gainsbourg in the song "Melody" from his 1971 album Histoire de Melody Nelson. The "Napoli Trip Mix" of the song contains samples from Roberto Paci Dalò's record "Napoli", released in 1993.
The music video for the song premiered in May 1995 and was directed by Jonathan Glazer.
