Ce soir j'ai envie de passer une heure avec Darrell Fitton aka Bola. Une discographie qui est un petit bijou d'introspection musicale. Très inventif et sensible. Contrairement à la grande majorité des productions experimental Trip-Hop, sa musique ne vieillit pas, ne sombre jamais dans la caricature d'une époque où tout se melangeait bien plus facilement.
Feat Maxi Jazz RIP
Let's go back 25 years or so for some cool #triphop
Atmospheric trip hop with female vocals, piano melody, electric bass, electric piano and synths, groovy drums
Massive Attack - The Spoils ft. Hope Sandoval
Massive Attack, iconic Trip Hop musicians from the UK published this outstanding track in 2016 as a single. Once more they chose a brilliant singer to perform.
"Chalk it up to them misunderstanding what I said
Making up the rules to win a game inside my head
I think I'm growin' up, but nah, if I'm growin'
I'm just growing old
Hanging on to every grudge I think I need to hold
Can't remember who I'm even fighting anymore
You'd think I'd know my way by now
But I'm lost, and now I can't be found"
SOUNDS FROM THE GROUND - Kin
Not too enthused in this review, which isn't the fault of the album itself. I just happened to binge so much SFtG in such a short period then, something was gonna' come off weaker than the rest. And, well, that ended up being the duo's debut.

Anitek is one of those artists who really deserve more of an audience.
Go check out his dozens of releases:
Seriously, dude's probably the most consistently prolific and good artist in the free music scene I know of.
His releases add up to about 24 hours of material by now and every time I go look him up again, there's something new.

One of the hippest labels in the land celebrates its 150th release in a double-LP extravaganza! Also makes available a bunch of their exclusive DJ-Kicks tracks in a tidy two-discer. Either-or works.

Release day is here at last!
My Ephemera album was released one year ago, on Nov. 8, 2022, and to celebrate the album’s first anniversary of being out in the world, I’m thrilled to present these remixes by artists from Vancouver, Germany and Scotland.
Portishead have graciously remastered the Live NYC Roseland recording, 25 years later:
Edit: There are 3 new tracks on here:
• Western Eyes
Edit: here's the links to all places:
🎧 What I'm on right now.
📹 #BaillieWalsh directed the #video featuring Shara Nelson walking as she sang. It was "filmed in a single continuous [Steadicam] shot from 1311 South New Hampshire Avenue to 2632 West Pico Boulevard in #LosAngeles, California" — Wikipedia
#Listening to Life Forms by The Nomad:
The album this is from, Second Selection (1999) is one of my favourite albums of kiwi down tempo electronica. Especially the final track, Time is Running Out, whose warning seems all the more urgent almost a quarter of a century later:
Song of the Day - No 290
Olive - You're Not Alone
"You're Not Alone" is a song by the British band Olive. It was released in 1996 as the lead single from their debut studio album, "Extra Virgin." The track achieved significant success, topping the UK Singles Chart.
FUN FACT: I'm friends with Olive's singer, Ruth-Ann Boyle.
hi, everyone! since I'm on a new instance, I figured I'd post again about my music, because I'm excited as hell to share it with y'all! ❤️
I make electronic music, sometimes instrumental, sometimes with spoken-word poetry, and occasionally with some singing when I'm feeling confident. my main influences, genre-wise, include shoegaze and dreampop, industrial, trip-hop and a smattering of spoken-word artists (Kae Tempest, Leonard Cohen, Mike Doughty).
I currently have two albums up on my Bandcamp, https://rachelunderspoon.bandcamp.com :
nonbinaural is a full-length compilation of tracks that I composed and recorded throughout 2022. I never intended to write songs about the "transfem experience," but a few people have commented that they get major feelings of trans joy from the album, and, well, I guess that happened subconsciously somewhere along the way. 😅 but it also touches upon my struggles with recovering from codependency and finding my own voice after a stifling long-term relationship.
eclipse is an EP that I released back in April. it contains a few new songs from early 2023, plus a couple left over from 2022 that I didn't feel fit on nonbinaural. it's overall darker and more experimental than the full-length, and it touches upon some more traumatic themes that I wanted to confine to a shorter release.
both albums are available to stream for free, but you can download losseless copies of both for just $1 each. and your purchase of eclipse even gets you three bonus tracks: two instrumental versions of songs on the EP and an entirely original song!
oh, and you can also listen to some of my more recent compositions on my Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/user-93585615
either way, thank you for listening! 😁
Tricky - Maxinquaye
Despite the imitators that came out after, a singular accomplishment, and almost as much of a Martina Topley-Bird album as a Tricky one...her vocals breaking through the deep, paranoid murk are critical to the LP's success.
This is getting re-released/re-visited in the next month or so; it seemed like a good time to listen to the original again. Remains great.
Hi everyone! First day of my new unemployment happens to be #BandCampFriday so if you're in the mood for adding an eclectic set of experimental electronica, this album has a nice blend of styles across 20 years of composing studio tracks.
~~~ #craque ~~~
~~~~ BLUE ~~~~
"Playtime" by L'indécis is a very mellow slice of luscious instrumental jazzy #hiphop
The production is sweet and rich, these deep vibes will have you lounging.
Check It Out!
I recorded a new mix. It's rather short and sounds alarmingly autumnal: drum'n'bass embedded in some ambient and triphop.
#drumandbass #dnb #triphop #mixtape
TIPPER - Surrounded
Well this is a surprise, but also not? I'm sure folks in the #Breaks scene were caught off guard by Dave doing a completely #Downtempo album, and good on him bucking convention. I'm sure he was feeling #NuSkool was getting stale as the #00s rolled on (because it was).
So going full #TripHop is an interesting wrinkle, sprinkling just enough #Glitch and #IDM touches that I'm sure wow'd purist breakbeat boys. Some of those drippy sounds tho', remind me of #PsyTrance wibble.
Song of the Day - No 243
Sneaker Pimps - 6 Underground
"6 Underground" is a song by the English band Sneaker Pimps from their debut studio album Becoming X. First released as a single in the United Kingdom in September 1996, the song reached number 15.
Both the song and the music video feature Kelli Dayton (later known as Kelli Ali), the band’s lead singer at the time.
@baymud Bay Mud's "On A Brick Speedboat" is a collection of tracks made with Synthstrom Deluge.
A kinda acidic #TripHop vibe prevails throughout the collection, with #BreakBeat or #IDM rhythmics this would not be out of place on NinjaTune in the late nineties.
Just great Stuff.
Check It Out!
Are there any #triphop #hiphop #indiemusic enthusiasts out there?
I recently produced some music for an up and coming rapper out of #Florida going by the name "Grafezzy" under the FeezMuzik
This track is my first in this genre. My own twist on things comes in the start with a bit of Trip Hop blending before that old school beat drops with another backing bass line filler. This mix highlights the rap mostly. Without further delay here is my mix:
Big Face Hunnid ft. Grafezzy
A belated #introduction :
We are Endless Blue, a #TripHop duo (and sometimes band) from San Marcos, CA by way of Milwaukee and Minneapolis. We’ve been at this for just shy of 20 years, self-producing numerous albums, appearing on several indie #soundtracks , and playing a bunch of shows. Our music is on all the things, but mostly here:
Hey, I am releasing a new exclusive track under my alias beatMage.
Listen to it here and if you like it, you can download it for free:
WARNING: There is a bribe involved, but it's one you're used to and probably already know a way around it (and I'm okay with that!).
Avec le retour du froid, je me suis dit que c'était le moment de refaire un peu de soupe.🥣
Not sure these have even been announced, but two Everything But The Girl live performances circa Walking Wounded and Temperamental just appeared on #Bandcamp and are free if you want.
Includes versions of the two Massive Attack songs from Protection that Thorn sang on.
Turns out there's some controversy over the #TripHop label.
The most prominent artists (Portishead, Massive Attack, Tricky) have expressed their critical views of the name due to how it was sold by the press as a British "improvement" over American hip hop.
I had no idea this beautiful album was considered #TripHop. I adore it, the whistling and chord changes and .. just everything about it.
1. Spoken word samples, so it's fine if you (read: I) can't sing. 🎙️
2. Electronic instruments; embrace the future. 🎛️
3. Prominent bass; best use your good headphones. 🎧
4. Melancholic sound, so get ready for some mood. 🌃
1993 B-side remix (of his own track) from the formidable LTJ Bukem. Great use of the harp & vocals, the worldbeat flavours in the percussion & overall floaty triphop sensibility to this jungle.
LTJ Bukem - Atlantis (I Need You) remix
Fresh track. Triphoppy + Greentea Peng vibes sitting over jungly DnB.
Sorta like an entire 90s big night, from heading out, all the way combined thru the cooldown.
goddard. & Greentea Peng - Downers (Rework)
@professorkiosk @Chronomyst @ocsweetest I need less than half a reason to post the reason I fell in love with sneaker pimps in sf in '07. roomie kevin (rip) was a bipolarpoet and wallowed in the darkness. i was less so, but felt his mood. kevvie intro'd me to #triphop one band at a time until it was *all I listened to. sneaker pimps came after massive attack and before portishead that year, if memory serves. https://youtu.be/Wuwfe3DRJzE
Do y’all love Portshead as much as I do? Beth Gibbons’ voice is angelic and the music is like nothing else.
Their first record, “Dummy,” is an icon. But the track “Machine Gun” from their third record, “Third,” is really great.
This track is just so good on headphones, or listening neatly in between your speakers. Very cool vibes.
Moonshine Crossroads is the album where this vibes version comes from, but also the Power Bossa album & it's remix album are all worth checking out. Variety of really solid tracks there.
