I've heard portishead being described as that. If that's correct, then yeah, I like that style. It's good thinking music, or just close eyes and let the music paint the images in your head

I really like Trip Hop, though the only bands I know of are Portishead and I Monster. They're both good though.

Edit: Oh, and Massive Attack.

I've only heard a few songs from Portishead and Massive Attack (UNFINISHED SYMPATHY!) and they're great. Great music to chill out to, fall asleep, or think about your girl. Check out the song Rabbit In Your Headlights, its amazing, its got Thom Yorke on vocals.

^ UNKLE albums are just top notch anyway. That song is great, but not the best from the back catalogue.

Thievery Corporation have always been a bit of a let down for me. Never completely got on with their stuff.
Massive Attack & Portishead are just classic though.
Kid Loco has done some decent stuff, and some of Bjork's is kind of trip-hoppy.

Its a very good genre, there just isn't enough people (well known) doing it.

I'm not overly familiar with the genre (mostly Thievery Corporation and Portishead) but I like what I've heard.

To a certain extent your are right about not enough people doing it. Although whatever artists are in this genre, they really are great.

Think of dancey, jazzy hip-hop beat merged with chillout music. Its not the easiest to explain, if you heard it you'd understand
Was looking through my CD collection last night for something to listen to and noticed the Hooverphonic ('Blue wonder power milk') and Kinobe ('Versebridgechorus') discs, both excellent (prefer the latter) and ones I'd highly recommend.
Always meant to check out 'Lost Horizons' by Lemon Jelly as well. It was a bit of a hit a few years back but I never got around to getting it, supposed to be amazing though.

^ They're a bit more at the dancey end, but I'd say there's a definate trip-hop feel to that album.

Yeah, I'd call it chilled out electronica myself, and I'd say Massive Attack are the ones at the top of the field, I think Portishead sort of fell by the wayside a little bit.

Can anyone explain to me why people think Portishead lost it on their second album? I wouldnt know, I only have Dummy yet, but I'm asking cuz many people only say the first is a classic.

Is Baxter trip-hop? (i.e. "Television," "All Of My Pride") I'm confused, I thought trip-hop had a drum n' bass influence with the beats but Portishead and Massive Attack aren't like that at all.

No-one has mentioned Lamb. Lamb are an amzing trip-hop band, they got me into the whole genre. And Lou Rhodes solo work is also incredible, and she is so enchanting live...wow

Oh, and the production company I am a partner in is looking for a 'trip-rock' band to produce and manage and write for and record etc etc....anyone here interested in that?

Their self-titled is my favourite by a long shot, but maybe you should try "Best Kept Secrets" - a best of, first.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Can't believe this amazing genre hasn't been talked about for sooo long. Anyways, trip hop is one of the only types of music which actually takes me 'somewhere else' if ya know what I mean, high or otherwise.

Like I can sit there, headphones on and bang on some Portishead and I'll be mellow as **** feeling like I'm sitting in some sort of coffee shop after a spliff and sippin' on a coffee (and not in Amsterdam Not that tacky.....) Beth Gibbons has a beautifully organic voice too

Not really a d&b influence, a hip hop one. D&B drums are just hip hop drums in double time.

Surely you mean soul, funk and R&B drums?

So, are any triphop acts, outside, of the big names, worth checking out?

I can't remember if I said this already, but basically there aren't any memorable songs: Dummy had well constructed tracks that were memorable, the electronic stuff complemented the songs, and the parts were much more thought out. There is a lot more blues and jazz influence on the first album, the music and melodies were much better, and the overall feel is a very soothing one. The second album dispences with so many of those things in favour of experimentation, that it's very difficult to listen to
