Music on a Monday - Triphop

It's a nice lazy-ish wintery day in my part of the world and I do love listening to the laid back style of Triphop.

Wikipedia defines triphop as per this extract

" Trip hop is a music genre also known as the Bristol sound. The trip-hop description was applied to the musical trend in the mid-1990s of downtempo electronic music that grew out of England's hip hop and house scenes. It has been described as "Europe's alternative of choice in the second half of the '90s", and a one-up fusion "of Hip-Hop and Electronica until neither genre is recognizable."[1] It is thus categorized as a fairly experimental genre, and sometimes with elements of Dance.

The style is characterized by the reliance on breakbeats and a sample-heavy, often moody sound pioneered by Coldcut's remix of Eric B. & Rakim's Paid in Full. Trip hop gained notice via popular artists such as Massive Attack, Bonobo, Portishead, Tricky, Björk, Moloko, Thievery Corporation, Lamb, Sneaker Pimps, Faithless, Emilíana Torrini, Pati Yang, Amon Tobin, and rock-influenced sound groups such as Ruby, Bristol's band Ilya, California's DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, UNKLE, and the UK's Gorillaz, Howie B., Morcheeba, originating from Hythe in Kent, Londoners Glideascope,Urban Species, New York's Bowery Electric, and Seattle's Anomie Belle[2] are also often associated with this sound. Massive Attack's debut album Blue Lines, is seen as the "blueprint" for the genre"

"Post trip hop
Around 1994 Trip-Hop was applied to a wide variety of electronic music that was later divided into sub categories such as Big Beat and Electro music. After the success of Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky albums in '94 and '95, a new generation of trip hop artists emerged with a more standardized sound. "Post trip hop" artists included Morcheeba, Sneaker Pimps, Supreme Beings of Leisure, Alpha, Mono, Mudville, The Aloof, Glideascope, Cibo Matto. These artists integrated trip hop with Ambience, R&B, Breakbeat, Drum 'n' Bass, Acid Jazz, New Age, etc. Parts of Trip-Hop even emerged as far away as Alt-Country with Patty Griffin's Flaming Red. Furthermore, vocals expanded beyond melancholy female voices. The first printed record for the use of the term "Post trip hop" was as late as October 2002 when British newspaper The Independent used it to describe Second Person and their hybrid sound. Trip hop has now developed into a diversified genre that is no longer limited to the "deep, dark style" of the early years, eliminating the original impression of trip hop as "dark and gloomy."
