Great post Gavin B...but the list can really be enlarged by many!

Nothing like Massive Attack and Tricky for me. But Cinephile (which I found through here) is gorgeous . And there are the French newbies White Noise and Silence and The Flight, also 2013.
This thread is one of the best I found so far on the internet about this cool cool genre! That´s even why I joined this forum.

Brilliant.

I guess this is kinda the genre of my teenager years, and I didn't even know it had a name. Strange.

Just wondering....you wouldn't consider the Gorillaz Trip Hop?
Gorillaz are usually placed in the "alternative rap" or "indie pop" category but I can see why some people think of Gorillaz as trip hop. The trip hop genre is highly subjective and some folks will argue that some of the groups aren't trip hop, while other groups should be included. I'm a pluralist and I'm not to fussy about correct or incorrect genre labeling.

Every group or artist on my chronological list have been labelled trip hop at some point in their musical career, but many of the artists on the list have disavowed the trip hop label.

Chronology of Trip Hop Album Releases

Early 1990s

Massive Attack- Blue Lines (1991)
The Orb- UFOrb (1992)
Orbital- Orbital 2 (1993)
Bjork- Debut (1993)
Saint Etienne- So Tough (1993)
Portishead- Dummy (1994)
Saint Etienne- Tiger Bay (1994)
Massive Attack- Protection (1994)
Aphex Twin- Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 (1994)

Mid to Late 1990s

Tricky- Maxinquayle (1995)
Smoke City- Flying Away (1997)
Nicolette- Now Is Early (1997)
Waldeck- Balance of the Force (1997)
Ivy- Apartment Life (1997)
Air- Moon Safari (1998)
Red Snapper- Making Bones (1998)
Hooverphonic- Blue Powder Wondermilk (1998)
Lamb- Fear of Fours (1999)
Everything But the Girl- Temperamental (1999)
Fila Brazilla- A Touch of Cloth (1999)

Early 2000s

Waldeck- The Night Garden (2001)
Zero 7- Simple Things (2001)
Olive- Trickle (2001)
Smoke City- Heroes of Nature (2001)
Ivy- Guest Room (2002)
Morcheeba- Charango (2002)
Hooverphonic- Jackie Cain (2002)
Goldfrapp- Black Cherry (2003)
Alphaweezen- En Passant (2004)

Mid 2000s to Early 2010s

Zero 7- The Garden (2006)
Bitter:Sweet- The Mating Game (2006)
Air -Pocket Symphony (2007)
Little Dragon- Little Dragon (2007)
Emiliana Torrini- Me and Armini (2008)
Laetitia Sadier- The Trip (2010)
Grimes- Visions (2012)
Ghostpoet- Some People Say I So I Say Light (2013)
Late Night Alumni- The Beat Becomes A Sound (2013)

I've always loved trip hop because it was the 90s alternative to grunge rock and/or Britpop. In many ways grunge and Britpop are more about rock music's past while trip hop is about rock music's future. Most modern rock bands have incorporated elements of trip hop and electronica since the rise the Bristol Sound introduced trip hop in the UK in the early 90s. Rock & roll is no longer centered around the guitar sound as it was in the early Sixties when the Beatles changed everything.

In the long run trip hop has been more influential because mainstream rock & rap groups have adopted the production techniques, the drum beats and use of electronic gadgetry that was pioneered by the earliest trip hop groups. From my perspective newer musical genres like dub step are permutations trip hop.

Great list Gavin! I would just like to add the often forgotten Saltillo - Ganglion to the list, (2006) & I know that many people think Morcheeba was a little too commercial, but (Who you can trust 1996) is killer.

Nice list Gavin, although I would disagree with a couple of choices

For Hooverphonic I would have went with A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular and for Lamb I would have went with their self-titled. I would have thrown Londinium by Archive into the list as well.

I just listened to Tricky's Maxinquaye for the first time a few days ago, and the album is nuts, can't wait to hear more from him.

And I'm throwing Rob Dougan out there, because I don't think he gets nearly as much credit as he should. His only album (unfortunately), Furious Angels, is just amazing IMO.

Dutch - A Bright Cold Day is essential in my view.

Default Listen to this girl from my home town

Jessy Lanza - Kathy lee

YouTube this please!!!! Filmed in Hamilton Ont Canada where I live, the guy dancing in the video has been dancing our streets for years (10-15 years) or as far back as I can remember! He walks and dances everyday like that, Lanza had asked him to be in her video and It made for such a excellent setting for this song, support her, Hamilton has a very unique and diverse music scene!!!

Tricky just keeps on impressing me.

Here he is teamed up with Fifi Rong, who gets my vote for the best female trip-hop vocalist in recent years. (She has an album and and EP out on Bandcamp, both are just as incredible.)
