best triphop/dub albums

heya...

title says it. I'm getting lost searching for it by myself... great Triphop tracks (except for the usual suspects like portishead, massive attack...), trippy dub albums (not just dubstep stuff). I'd appreciate some help!

It's a bit old now but the Troublemakers "Doubts & Convictions" was a great album.

Vanessa Daou's "Zipless" is a favorite of mine in that sort of genre. "Near the Black Forest" is all vibe.

Kid Loco - anything really but I find the best is A Grand Love Story
EZ3kiel - Handle with Care
Le Peuple de l'Herbe - P.H.Test/Two
Ruby - Stroking the Full Length
Quantic - The 5th Exotic
Dadamnphreaknoizphunk - Take Off Da Hot Sweater

Hmmmm, that's all I can think of at the moment, definite gold in there though.

the first few Morcheeba records. Who can you trust?, Big Calm & Beats/B-sides. (they dropped off a cliff after that, went very pop & lost the singer)

there's a really cool compilation called Audio Alchemy (Experiments In Beat Reconstruction) & another series called Trip Hop Test.

Hooverphonic had a couple good tracks on A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular (between early Sneaker Pimps & Morcheeba)
Bowery Electric is a lil darker
U.n.k.l.e. is Trip Hoppy but drifts off into various other directions check out Psyence Fiction.
Red Snapper, Fila Brazilia & Funki Porcini are pretty much instrumental mellow grooves with various jazzy, bluesy, tekno influences.
Talvin Singh gets a lil more tekno & frantic on his albums but Anokha - Soundz of the Asian Underground is pretty mellow & trip hoppy with a heavy asian influence.

+1 for Tosca, Massive Attack, Portishead & tRICKY


i'd also add the mellower tracks from Underworld & Leftfield. they're known for their dancy OontZ tracks but they've got some sweet mellow grooves as well. see: UW - River of Bass & LF - Melt, Rhino's Prayer

Dub

Original dub, right (as opposed to 'dubstep', etc.)?

Anything by Mad Professor, The Scientist, King Tubby or Prince Far I

I guess I could see that especially from a USA person. I am a USA person too. I saw them at the pink pop festival in amsterdam where I was studying sound. Quite blown away really. The sound is really slick. He did a big stereo/surround effect on one of the songs in the tent and really cut my head off with it's slickness.

The US people in this thread are seem to be picking dub and hiphop related releases and over there they have this pretty dub stuff like lamb and kruder and doerfmeister. I can dig it very much although it borrows from pop music there. Really love that Kruder and Dorfmeister album ... the double one, K&D sessions. I think it is fabulous but it is the euro thing again to my ears.

K&d are german and lamb is english I think ?

Anyways, nice thread. Peace.

Earthling - Radar

it came out around 1996 and they never where as popular as Tricky or others but this album is a classic. i wholeheartly recommend it to anyone interested in trip hop. it still sounds suprisingly up to date.
