It’s difficult to define trip-hop, and most trip-hop artists deny they are part of any scene at all. Often described as “instrumental hip hop”, emphasis is on the music itself but every DJ producer has their own way of keeping a track alive so there can never be a distinctive trip-hop sound. It takes ideas from jazz, blues, hip-hop, dub, ambient, even classical music. PURE TRIP HOP draws its inspiration from artists like DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, Wagon Christ, Depth Charge, Attica Blues, U.N.K.L.E., and even The Chemical Brothers. It’s a wide ranging set of ingredients for constructing accomplished trip hop, including 30 musical pieces divided into their separate elements plus extra helpings of beat loop samples, bass lines, EP chords and drum hits. Keys and BPMs are indicated.
