I’ll never forget that moment where Trip-Hop entered my life. I was dating a woman at the time that had a great impact on me. She was driving and I had the seat back and I immediately asked her what was playing. Portishead.
Ever since that moment I dove deep into the genre. I discovered the beauty that is Bjork, Lamb, and Halou. Trip-Hop encompasses love, passion, emotion, and memories.
One of the most commonly known trip-hop’s album Tricky’s Maxinquaye is being re-released with a bonus disc and remixes. I’m anticipating to hear the new remixes of Hell’s Around the Corner. Ever since I saw the video and heard the song it’s become one of my instant favorites. I had the luxgury of catching Tricky live a couple months ago. I’ll never forget hearing Past Mistake live with him adding lyrics and adding such emotion when repeating “Jesus is coming”.
