remember the first time you heard the [P]. Your world was immediately
set on fire, wasn't it? You also remember the first time you heard
gorgeous, dreamy vocals over hip-hop beats, and something in your
brain said "wait, this isn't R+B, this is sooooo much better.....
what the hell is this?"
And you knew that, 'cause you're here. And
yeah, I know that trip-hop is a term/classification that is HATED
by most of the artists associated with the words, but then again,
it's a term that's been around for about 15 years now. It's not
going away, and neither is the amazing music.
site is called triphoppin.net for clarity purposes. When most people
hear the words "trip-hop", they immediately think of bands
like Portishead, DJ Shadow, Massive Attack, Tricky, Mono, Puracane,
is music for intelligent minds, spiritual souls, and open-minded
ears. It is a style of music that is (quality-speaking), above and
beyond the weak punk and teen pop music all over eMpTyV. Despite
trip-hop's small following (especially in the US) you can hear its
influence all over pop radio in the US and the UK (Dido, Jem, Norah
Jones, Gorillaz, etc.).
mass opinion, trip-hop does has a rabid following, and there are
too few websites on the genre, especially in English. So, welcome.
This is the internet's first all-in-one trip-hop/downtempo production,
recording, and album resource. It is for fans, producers, and musicians
