Get ready for another rework: This time, a chance to listen to some of the music that was triphop, from the glory days before the term became tired from overuse. This set was first assembled in 2004 & by then it was already considered a retrospective of a musical style that had its peak in the late 90s. The current version eliminates 5 or 6 tunes & the transitions have been reconstructed to blend smoothly without altering the track BPMs (as the original mix did.)
The stars of triphop (Portishead, Morcheeba, Massive Attack, Tricky) are here, along with other EDM artists whose work occasionally had that same vibe (Amon Tobin, The Crystal Method, Bjork, Nenah Cherry.) Lesser knowns like User’s Atmosphere, RHC ft. Plavka & Freakpower in Dub bring the secret sauce that make this dish unique.
A decade plus seems like enough time will have passed so that the music sounds fresh again & these tracks may find new fans among those who didn’t catch triphop fever the first time around.
