Trip Hop

So I've been inclined to fallinto the world of Trip Hop and let me just say that I like it. Trip Hop has been around since the early 90's in Bristol England. The name is meant to suggest the spacey, down-tempo feeling of trip hop music. Originators in Bristol modified hip hop by adding a laid-back beat ("down tempo") – Bristol's signature sound in hip hop (trip hop's predecessor) was characterized by its emphasis on slow and heavy drum beats and a sound drawing heavily on acid jazz, Jamaican and dub music. If you want to get a sample of this listen to Dj Shadow.
