Mixtape Masters: Trip-Hop Nation

November 19, 2010

Isaiah’s home genre is the rock, post-industrial rock, space rock, awesome-rock-ness genre. Mine is trip-hop. We share a love for trip-hop for sure and Isaiah definitely introduces me to a wealth of trip-hop…but the Sneaker Pimps have been my jam since the first day I heard Becoming X and one of the only things that keeps my heart pumping musically is to find some new soul/trip-hop. We definitely pushed through this playlist together (as per usual), and we narrowed it down to five with serious thought and consideration. If you normally just check out the song titles and don’t listen to the music, just give us today. We’re both completely invested in these five songs, and we’re probably going to bust out a second trip-hop mix soon.


For more Mixtape Master madness, peep the playlists on these blogs:

Hi-Fi Weddings, One Cat Per Person, Tylre, My SF Budget WeddingFashion Under 100, Dead Flowers, Jo Rooting, Craft My Life, Another Damn Life, Casa de Kaloi, Bunnies’n Beagles, Something Different, Savoir Weddings, Existing Between Reality and Dreams and Fancy Notion.

Be a Mixtape Master. Email Angie or Ashley to get on the list.

    So I’m listening along and somewhere during that Esthero song I think, “that sounds a lot like Bjork.” And a minute goes by and I say out loud, to myself, “THAT HAS TO BE BJORK. Did she start a side project?” So I google it and no, of course it’s not Bjork. But damn, sam. She’s got a killer voice either way.

    Great list for our gray day here in SB, waiting for the rain to come. I love me some trip-hop.

      This Isaiah: Bjork almost made this list and we held back opting to save her for another week but I can defiantly get the comparison. A lot of Esthero’s other stuff tends to lean more on the soulful side of trip hop and it gets more difficult to make that comparison. Trip hop has a place in our city kid hearts and esp for those gray days (Chi had a lot of those…. odd thing to miss)

      Glad your diggin’ on this.

    I haven’t had a chance to listen this mix yet but I just have to say: I freaking adore Portishead. The Roseland NYC Live CD FTW!
