Today's Trip Hop playlist

This trumpet player/educator/composer had an interesting album or two during this period I’m sure we can include…

And a bit of a stretch, but heavily influenced by the genre and a personal relationship with Tricky to boot…

As Madonna was mentioned, some may know her Bedtime Story album featured a contribution from Bjork-

nice comp of some obscure tip hoppy jams

Streamed this new release yesterday. Roon/Tidal has got it under quite a few different genres. I'm placing it here, think it fits and like it quite a bit.

ghost funk train. funk train ghost. so many possibilities.
Kind of exciting, this one has went under the radar. Discovered on Radio Paradise the morning. Queued up for the ride home. Now steaming on the main system. Amazed I missed this one back in the day.


Shrift ~ Lost in a Moment​

by Adam Greenberg

Lost in a Moment is the debut album from a pair of veterans on the electronica and club scene working together: Dennis Wheatley, better known as part of Atlas, and Nina Miranda, a roving British vocalist. The combination of the two for a single sound becomes an interesting exercise in organic music. The vocals are enveloped in electronica, but Wheatley is careful to take care with them. Miranda's voice is soft and often unadorned. She has a naïveté to her delivery that evokes (along with touches of Portuguese in her lyrics) the work of Astrud Gilberto. At the same time, in combination with Wheatley's instrumentals, the sound comes close to the trip-hop of Portishead at times. This is a fine example of electronica as accompaniment, but more. Normally, the production wizards spend so much time devising new tricks and hooks to show off that the end result doesn't seem quite put together when a vocalist is added. Here, the total is a fine piece of work, with the components complementing one another well.
