Trip-Hop

Do you know what trip-hop is? I didn’t, although I love many of the artists in the genre. Take it away, Wikipedia: “Trip hop (sometimes called “downtempo”) is a musical genre that originated in the early 1990’s in the United Kingdom, especially Bristol. It has been described as “a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognizable,” and may incorporate a variety of styles, including funk, dub, soul, psychedelia, R&B, and house, as well as other forms of electronic music.” Sounds mostly like soul music to me, with some electronica mixed in. I love the female voice with simple backing, which is what most of the music I have here is like.

Please listen to this: it’s not overly experimental – it incorporates some soundtrack-like sounds along with just great singing (mostly by women). So listen to Soul II Soul, Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps, Little Dragon, Morcheeba, Beth Orton, Dot Allison, Portishead, Everything But the Girl, Hooverphonic, Tricky, and DJ Shadow.
