trip-hop, downtempo, and otherwise under the bridge energy

if we could not talk about portishead or massive attack that would be exciting

this vibe is the “talking heads” to digital hardcore’s “swans” or something. if we were to compare Y2K sound movements. no one likes bein a sleazebag no more. they just “ah” one (tony soprano voice)

I find it interesting that you want to keep them out of the thread and then immediately post Sneakerpimps, in my mind they’re all of a kind.

Dangerously close to the forbidden portishead/massive attack (forbidden for a good reason, imo, they tend to dominate this genre), but I do like Morcheeba, even though they are so corny.

idk they just pop up so much and have made trip-hop such a nighttime thing, but the sun can totally be out instead and that’s what i think the version of sneaker pimps with kelli ali in it sounds like

you’re hungover and sad about something, but it’s 5 am and you’re coming back from 7-11 with some jamaican beef patties and iced coffee. as opposed to being in an alley at midnight and bashing your head against a wall because its cold. these are the worlds of trip-hop

Also, trip-hop can sound like you’re taking a shower in a space station:
