Trip-Hop, etc.
Peter Silberman / The Antlers

“Some years ago, for whatever reason, I decided to try having a trip-hop radio show in college,” he explains. “Little did I know that I was going to be given three hours a week to fill with what I quickly learned is somewhat of a narrow genre. Granted, a ton of amazing music came from Bristol and wherever else in England in the nineties, but there’s also a good deal of awful trip-hop. The trick of the show became branching out — finding music that might not necessarily be categorized under the same name but shares some of the same qualities. Here’s a collection of some of the genre’s most well-known tracks, alongside some newer songs that clearly seem to share something on common with their predecessors. The truth: trip-hop may be over, but it’s still alive.

1. Portishead – “Biscuit”

2. Tricky – “Ponderosa”

3. Massive Attack – “Risingson”

4. Kruder & Dorfmeister – “Going Under (Rocker’s Hifi)”

5. Laika – “Almost Sleeping”

6. Beach House – “Saltwater”

7. Low – “Breaker”

8. Son Lux – “Betray”

9. Burial – “Archangel”

10. Under Byen – “Siamesisk”
