    Big Tabs looking backwards, going forwards

    Amon Tobin can be touch drum & bass in parts, love the early stuff.

    Have a look through Ninja Tunes label, plenty to explore.

    Unkle are trip-hop? I know they do a lot of dubbing and mixing, but War Stories has been one of my favourite Rock albums for many years, never heard anything in it to put them in same classification as some of the other bands mentioned here. Is there a definition of Trip-Hop? It's all just labels though.

    It's quite a good album of the ilk I guess and sounds good, but like I said - sold all mine. Not really my thing, all a bit pointless and dull.

    Some of my very favourite albums are you Massive Attack & Portishead, would Morcheeba be considered Trip hop or ???
    I'd be interested in any other Trip hop

    foxwelljsly Me too, I ate one sour too.

    Mark's keyboard repair is a totally fabulous record - one of my favourite LPs of the 90's. I love it's musical sketchbook quality and killer grooves - I was disappointed that he appeared to transform into a second rate Elvis Costello on his subsequent records.

    I've always thought that Morcheeba are to trip hop what UB40 are to reggae (UB40's excellent first album notwithstanding).

    Yeah, there's a lot of smoky hip hop and techno stuff on Mo Wax, like Kool Keith/Dr Octagon, DJ Krush and Kirk Degiorgio/As One that would appeal to those looking for a bit of trip-hop, without strictly being trip-hop.

    Also try:

    Thievery Corporation
    Funky Porcini
    Kruder & Dorfmeister
    DJ Krush

    ...not strictly trip hop, but plenty of it in there.

    blossomchris I feel better than James Brown

    For sure, not so about his other entry should it even be there.

    Thanks for the link, I learned a lot, a bit of listening is required now.

    Many of audience: yay!

    Tricky: I don't - it's fecking sh1t!

    Not a fan, lol, to be honest I never thought about it until today, I suppose I just considered Morcheeba a pop band, though I reckon Big Calm is a great album.
