Genre: Trip Hop

Postby ashokrai » Sat Nov 06, 2010 6:39 am

Trip hop is a music genre that refers to a musical trend that began in the mid-1990s of downtempo electronic music and grew out of England's hip hop and house scenes, including the Bristol underground scene. It has been described as "Europe's alternative choice in the second half of the '90s", and a fusion "of Hip-Hop and Electronica until neither genre is recognizable."

Common musical aesthetics include a bass-heavy drumbeat, often emulating the slowed breakbeat samples typical of Hip Hop in the 1990s. Vocals in Trip Hop are often female and feature characteristics of various singing styles including R'n'B, Jazz and Rock. The female-dominant vocals of Trip-Hop may be partially attributable to the influence of genres such as Jazz and early R'n'B in which female vocalists were more common.
