to me trip hop is about mellow gritty psychedelic grooves with spacey melodic action on top. Lamb just strikes me as pop with breakbeats (kinda like BT). guess it's just a taste thing.

as for being decapitated by sound, i caught a Sneaker Pimps show when they still had the girl singer, i forget the name of the track but the dj/keyboard guy busted out this loop that turned the whole room into a bass cabinet. incredible resonance, i'm surprised the building didn't collapse.

if you like it a bit more of the dark side, maybe try some from the wordsound label, like spectre or scarab. also laswell did some good basic dub albums. try dub gabriel, capt. kowatchi and the land of baboon compilations and a wackies compilation.

I love some of Schnauss' stuff, but it's neither Trip Hop nor Dub.

Not one Portishead mention????

That kinda kills any credibility for this thread.

How? Given that he/she is asking for trip hop doesn't that presuppose that he/she has heard it before and is likely to have heard the three trip pioneers portishead, tricky and massive attack

I read it as 'what other trip hop is there except the obvious ?' so i didn't bother suggesting the most famous trip hop acts

Ok so comments like thievery corp are a bit off but its down tempo so why not

I don't like Portishead very much. Really tiring to listen to IMO. Artsy but not tasty. Just my 2 cents of course.

I thought his first album had quite a bit of trip hop flavor in the drums.

But I can see your point.

Also, just about everything on Ninja Tune is good.
And one of my fav's...

And how many times has Tricky and Massive Attack been mentioned so far????

Also, you'd be surprised at how many people have never heard Portishead.

To the OP, here are some great examples of Trip Hop:

Portishead, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp, Telepopmusik, Thievery Corporation, and Wax Tailor to name a few. Also check out Love in the Time of Science, an album by Emilíana Torrini.

Of these Portishead is arguably the best thing Trip Hop has ever produced, but all are stellar.

I was going to assume no one meant the actual dub music, because of the dubstep craze, but after I saw Lee Perry, Tubby, Far I, I knew that it was safe. phew.... I would have to say best dub albums? hard to say, dub albums didn't really start happening until the mid 70s, since they were so many good dub singles since the 60s. My favorite dubs are Queen of the Minstrel Version, I'm Just A Girl Version, Lee Perry Super Ape and Return of the Super Ape, Mikey Dread Dread at the Controls, Ticklah vs. Axelrod, anything Gregory Kage or anything from Studio II Recordings.

Ain't nothing like listening through a good compilation to find some new artists.

I suggest Vol 1-3 of the Trojan Dub Box Set. You're sure to find a lot of artists in those compilations that will be to your liking. I really enjoy Trojan Records.

Recent stuff...

Anything by Blockhead ( Not to be confused with Bloc party )

Anything on the TRU THOUGHTS record label

Anything on NINJA TUNES record label

Anything by RJD2 ( I believe him to be christ reincarnated.. sent down from heaven to collect rare analogue synths and make awesome tunes)

Heliocentrics are really good too.

BBNG are worth checking out. A new canadian band]

Check out Alex Claire's EP as well

Apart from that.. yeah, the usual suspects

ahhh the nostalgia. this was the stuff that got me into electronic music in the first place and imo it's still one of the best music ever made. most of the stuff was done before the ITB era and it sounds like it.

From the late 90s I'll add Nightmares on wax, early Asian Dub Foundation, Aromabar, i-cube, there's much more good stuff I just can't remember.

More recent stuff that is not really trip-hop but has a similar vibe:

arovane
beanfield
benge
confutatis
deru
digitonal
rj valeo
iso68

good thread!!

With Dummy Portishead has ignited a style that peaked a few months later with Mezzanine. Then Air and Boards of Canada has contributed to kill the trip-hop trend for good.

If I had to chose 3 classic trip-hop albums, then it would be :

Massive Attack : Mezzanine
Portishead : Roseland NYC live
Morcheeba : Who Can You Trust?

Great timeless music IMHO. Mezzanine has been a massive influence to artists like Burial and FlyLo.
