I guess Amon is vaguely Trip Hop but he's an odd mix of genres if you wanna label him. Permutation is what I like to call 'Jazzy Drum Shit' and it rules.

Can't believe I'm quoting Wikipedia here, but:



Trip hop (or trip-hop) is a music genre consisting of downtempo electronic music which originated in the early 1990s in England, especially Bristol. Deriving from "post"-acid house,[1] the term was first used by the British music media and press as a way to describe the more experimental variant of breakbeat which contained influences of soul, funk and jazz.[2] According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, the term was first used in 1989.[3] It has been described as "Europe's alternative choice in the second half of the '90s", and "a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognisable."[4] Trip hop music fuses several elements and has much in common with other genres; it has several qualities similar to ambient music,[5] its drum-based breakdowns share characteristics with hip hop music from the United States,[6] as well as containing elements of house, dance and dub reggae music. Trip hop can be highly experimental in nature.[7]

DJ Shadow Endtroducing, DJ Krush Strictly Turntablized, DJ Spooky Songs of a Dead Dreamer. This shit rules to me. If you like guest vocalists singing pop, sadcore, and r&b over your beats, then have at it, but don't expect me to agree with you. You can argue about genre till the rooster crows, but it isn't going to change my opinion of the music.

When I want pop, I listen to pop. When I want r&b I listen to r&b. When I want hip hop I listen to hip hop. When I want "trip hop" (idgaf what you call trip hop), I prefer instrumental. DJ Krush is the epitome of trip hop to me.

Oh sorry man hahaha, a heated Trip Hop debate just kicked off. Strictly Turntablized is really good.

secondly they aren't 'singing over beats' they are singing to music, its a completely different story than if someone went and rapped over a dj krush beat. the vocals are as much a part of the music for those groups as the music is, and i don't think most of those artists intentions are 'to throw down a beat'. they are songwriters.


Graham, the silentpotato, killing it once again guys. Nice, nice, nice. Listening to ISAM again, where has my mind gone?!

Bonobo is definitely trip hop



more experimental variant of breakbeat which contained influences of soul, funk and jazz.


Trip hop music fuses several elements and has much in common with other genres;


its drum-based breakdowns share characteristics with hip hop music from the United States,


Trip hop can be highly experimental in nature.

ok dev so you took the sentences that work and left the ones that don't,




well no, trip hop is a mishmash of different styles. I merely quoted the parts that Tobin is fond of using



maybe my idea of trip hop is just too grounded to the roots.




The roots of trip hop lie with Shadow, and that collision of sounds and percussion hitting each other head on. Before that, your Massive Attack's and Portishead's were all referred to as "downtempo"

I'm pretty sure Wikipedia is pretty maintained now and their articles are heavily edited by professionals.
