T R I P H O P P I N'

This thread is about that weird and experimental genre called trip-hop that started sometime in the early 90s! Talk all about it here! Portishead, Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps, Tricky etc. I guess Everything But The Girl (post Amplified Heart) qualifies too. Also, maybe Bjork?

I don't know too much about this genre but I'm curious to know. That's why I started this thread. What are the essential albums? Post your Top 10 lists here if you like.

Morcheeba and The Cinematic Orchestra are awesome too, although I know not everyone would call them trip-hop.

My friend's Dad told me that Portishead's 'Dummy' and Massive Attack's 'Mezzanine' are two good places to start.

Yeah, I've heard much praise for both... esp. Mezzanine.

I still think that the first album from The Gorillaz was more or less an experiment in trip-hop.

Sneaker Pimps yes I remember that vibe. 1996 was a very good year.

Essential Trip-Hop Albums:

Massive Attack: Mezzanine
Portishead: Dummy
Kruder and Dorfmeister: the K&D Sessions
Lamb: Lamb
Air: Moon Safari (though this is more downtempo)
Massive Attack: Blue Lines
Aim: Cold Water Music
Everything But The Girl: Temperamental
Sneaker Pimps: Becoming X
Tricky: Maxinquaye
Massive Attack: Protection
Goldfrapp: Utopia
Thievery Corporation: Mirror Conspiracy
UNKLE: Psyence Fiction
Portishead: s/t


And then we move to some amazing albums that are almost trip-hop, or similar to, but not really:
Amon Tobin: Bricolage
Underworld: Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Junior Boys: Last Exit
Royksopp: Melody A.M.
RJD2: Deadringer
Dub Pistols: Six Million Ways to Live
Bent: Programmed to Love
Cinematic Orchestra: Every Day
Slowdive: Souvlaki
St. Germain: Tourist
Four Tet: Rounds
Dusted: When We Were Young
Boards of Canada: Music Has A Right to Children
The Notwist: Neon Golden
Twine: Twine
Bjork: Post
Bjork: Homogenic
Menomena: I am the Fun Blame Monster
Zero 7: Simple Things
Blue States: Nothing Changes Under the Sun
Outkast: ATLiens (pretty trippy hip hop..)
Primal Scream: Vanishing Point
Roisin Murphy: Ruby Blue
(Matthew) Herbert: Around the House, Bodily Functions

man.. there's just too many albums to recommend.
basically, Massive Attack and Portishead are the most important trip-hop acts in the world. triphop is basically nonexistent anymore.. it has become downtemp/chillout in a lot of cases, or acid jazz.. but there's still some similarly awesome sounds.
Electronic music is generally overlooked unfortunately.

True that. Those are essential downbeat albums.

there are various styles, basically the Bristolers started in the Dug Out Club .. already late 80s, Mark Stewart and the Pop Group, DJ Milo, Tricky etc. The first commercial wave of triphop albums like Portisheads Dummy or Morcheeba or the first Massive attack album start of the 90s. Then Tricky left Massive Attack and put out various great albums with lotsa dark & moody sounds and with Martina, who later did her own thing.

In Vienna it came up a little later, but with Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmeister who also do various side projects like Tosca, Vienna quickly established.

Essential albums I´d add to the above list

Tricky - those 4 albums are a must have
Maxinquaye
Pre Millenium Tension
Nearly God
Blowback

Massive Attack
Blue Lines
100th Window

Martina Topley-Bird
Quixotic

Lamb
What Sound

Morcheeba
Who Can You Trust
Big Calm
Fragments of Freedom

Moloko (no one has mentioned Do You Like my Tight Sweater, one of the funkiest downbeat albums around.. old stuff, Moloko are more into other styles now, like on the Statues album)

Herbalizer
Something Wicked This Way Comes

Ninja Tune.. is a label and they got a couple of those jazzy style bands like

Aqua etc..,
Amon Tobin;
Hedfunk;
Up, Bustle & Out

also check the !K7 label, they did the K&D albums, they got lots of downbeat/ electronica stuff, artists like Ursula Rucker.

there are a couple of chilly hiphop albums like Bahamadia´s Kollage; she also collaborated with Roni Size on New Forms

if you happen to like the Kruder&Dorfmeister style also get their DJ Kicks album, lotsa remixing and delaaaaaaays

that should be enough for a start,..
