trip hop artists
You chance upon one thing, which leads you to another, which takes you on somewhere else and the journey is …
I chanced upon this website offering up radio station listening to stattions all over the world. I found a particular station, it seems based in northern Brazil in Jericoacoara. I thought that I would explore via google maps and found what is a most remarkable place. With the most incredible beaches in front of me, then shops, streets and more reminding me of my time in Africa with trip hop playing in the background … I was transported to feelings of real comfort and joy in places such as the Harley in Sheffield, back some years ago, along with the joys of discovering a whole variety of new, gentle, thoughtful and imaginative sounds and beats. There was the subdued lighting and relaxed joy of those venues, good drinks, sweet beats. Then in front of me were the memories of times in Lesotho, gentler times, good people, warmth, physical and emotional (even though there was a war going on).

I have even got to the point of looking for work in the place. Somewhow I think I might enjoy the place. For me, as well, the music on the radio station fits in a peculiar way. It is not the local music – forro! Nor is it particularly south american, but the trip hop being played had all of the gentle imagination and subtle emotion that goes with a very distinct, warm sunset which is itself bracketed by a day of heat, gentle walking, getting on with things, and then a night of drinks, dance and food, with its ease in and ease out moments (so trip hop), then bed at ridiculous o’clock.

There is nothing quite like the right music fitting how mood and emotion is running, in the right place – perhaps a suitably aged and distressed area at the back of a personable pub.
It seems this is doing well in the charts at the moment …
Trip hop has had quite a revival recently. Some years ago we used to play gigs with a hefty dose of Portishead, Bonobo, Tricky,Lamb, Thievery Corporation, Massive Attack and many more. Now we create mixes using a whole raft of London Grammar, Wildlight, Emika, Coco Rosie and so on.

Pretty well all music styles can manage to find a place in a big venue, if done well can succeed with the big gig. For me though, sometimes certain sorts of music just fits nicely with particular places. Trip hop, old or its newer reflavouring, always seems to fit so well in venues like the Harley or the Redhouse – both Sheffield venues. Each has a very particular taste and texture – each has a history. The Redhouse has a history going back over 200 years. I have performed at each.
