Bristol Trip-Hop

  1. Any takers?
  2. My girlfriend introduced me to Massive Attack's Mezzanine back in september, and it still sounds as fresh as the first time I heard it. Portishead are great, too, but not quite as cohesive.
  3. Tricky is the shit.

    You should listen to Massive Attack's "Blue Lines", that's my favorite album of theirs.
  4. So I'm not the only one?
  5. Nah, guess not :wave:

    I'm not huge into the trip hop scene as I am with say House or DnB...what are some other artists you would recommend?
  6. I'm really brand new to the genre, the only bands I know of are Massive Attack, Portishead and UNKLE
  7. Ah, I see. Check out DJ Krush. He's from Japan, but comes up with some really cerebral, dark beats. The album Kakusei is my favorite. Also, check out the album Carboot Soul by Nightmares on Wax.
  8. IMO Dj krush was never really a trip hop person to me, more of a lounge/ hip hop person. i would call Tricky trip hop...:confused: But if you like Krush, try DJ Spooky (i have Creation Rebel, def a great album if you like dub) oh i almost forgot Kid Koala, his stuff is more break mixed with jazz.

    n e ways, Hooverphonics are good, same with Baxter. but baxter's music is imposible to get a hold of.
  9. Others:
    (although Austrian... i think... not English)
    Sofa Surfers.
  10. Technically, DJ Krush is one of the great pioneers of Japanese Hip-Hop. However, the genre is so aurally similar to trip hop that I'll just semantically throw them into the same bin. Most critics and people do too; hell, even his mypspace has him labled as trip-hop :confused_2:

    DJ Spooky's Songs of a Dead Dreamer is so fucking good. And I like Kid Koala's album Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

    Have you heard Wave Twisters by DJ Q Bert? Such a weird concept alien race that communicates through record scratching :eek: :hippie :eek:
  11. I love Portishead and I love Massive Attack. Play the song Angel by Massive along with any porno and it is almost an instant orgasm.

    I must say though that I enjoy the music much more under the influence.
  12. Morcheeba,
    Thievery Corporation
    DJ Shadow
    Zero 7

    some more of my favorite trip hop bands and groups.... check these out.... quality

  13. Amen to all those. i just went to a show a few weeks ago in brooklyn and i saw DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist doing their Hard Sell tour. it was the craziest shit I've ever listened to, they spun 8 turntables at once with all 45 records. no laptops or kaos pads.

    dont think this qualifies as trip hop but STS9 has some great DnB. even Jason Mraz (only his old stuff tho)
  14. Wandering Stars by Portishead blows my mind every time.
