Anything Portishead (already mentioned I know but it really is that important). Massive Attack....duhh. Maxinquaye....duhh. And certain bits of Aphex but really, Portishead is the place to start.

DJ SHADOW is unclassifiable.
Bass nectar-unknown to me.
Nightmares On Wax are NOT trip hop. Ambient jazz breaks.
UNKLE is hard assed electronica no matter how u listen to it.

woah, got my ass kicked.
I disagree with DJ Shadow being unclassifiable tho, he's definitely trip hop to me. Down tempo groove with a heavy hip hop influence and lots of sampling.

You should check out BassNectar, although you'll probably find that they don't classify as TripHop either.

UNKLE is coming to the Big Day Out so I might check them out.

Have you heard Ulver's Perdition City? It seems to be a mixture of electronica/trip-hop/whatever. I don't listen to enough of that style to know if it would be considered typical for the genre, but I like it. Funny that they used to be a black metal band.

UNKLE have never really been the same since DJ Shadow quit.

On the other hand he's never been as good since he left UNKLE either.

Ulver have been popping up all over these forums. The only one I have is A QUICK FIX OF MELANCHOLY which did nothing for me, but I have heard that this band jump genres. However they have to be good at any particular genre they are doing and not genre hopping for the sake of it. i'm going to dig deeper with this band and try to get an overall picture of them.

Yeah, they're constantly experimenting. Call Perdition City a blind recommendation since I don't know much about the genre - you could either love it or detest it. I haven't listened to A Quick Fix of Melancholy yet. I do prefer their black/folk metal stuff though. Nattens Madrigal was a landmark black metal album.

^Yes! I love the rawness of Nattens Madrigal; the only album that compares (to me) is Marduk's Panzer Division. Ulver are generally awesome: when I first heard Blood Inside, I couldn't stop playing that CD repeatedly.

But on the topic of trip-top, do Red Snapper count? I've gone back through all my old CDs and found a lot of the Warp Records stuff I used to play all the time.

I have never heard Red Snapper. I'm intrigued.
