I sometimes get bewildered by all the labels for different musical genres - they are usually invented by journalists who need a by-line for an article they are writing.
Taking some excerpts from Wikipedia 'Trip hop is a music genre also known as the Bristol sound. The trip hop description was applied to the musical trend in the mid-1990s of downtempo electronic music that grew out of England's hip hop and house scenes. Trip hop is known for its melancholy, surreal aesthetics. This is due to the fact that several acts were inspired by post punk bands; in the 1990s, Massive Attack and Tricky both covered Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure.
In some instances, the trip hop sound relies on jazz samples, usually taken from old vinyl jazz records. This reliance on sampling has changed the way record labels deal with clearing samples for use in other people's tracks.'
I like the following - it seems I was able to gather these together before I realised they were all 'trip-hop'. I enjoy them anyway.
