I know why I loathe hip hop and rap.  The social headspace reminds me of the sub-cultures that supported totalitarian fascism in the early and mid-20th century. That and most of the music sucks.

Yeah, I don't get it either.  I agree that hip hop and rap by and large really suck though.

On all music guide they break it down pretty well for you here, with a history of the genre, pioneering artists, etc.  And at the bottom of the page they list out who they feel are the Top Artists, Top Albums & Top Songs (though some of their choices I would not agree fall into the Trip Hop genre).  My recommendations are:  Massive Attack, Portishead, Morcheeba and Thievery Corporation.  The K & D Sessions (by dj's Kruder & Dorfmeister) is definitely a seminal work not to be missed.  Waldeck is a great band/artist that really captures the sound well too.

  Intersting concept: this Trip Hop you speak of.  I'm not sure

Morcheeba actually falls under a Hip-Hop sub-genre known as Trip-Hop. . . so you can safely go back to loathing hip-hop and rap. . . {#Cheesygrin}

"...smoother than mercury on ice..." — I love that turn of phrase.  Just love it.  It's a great description of this tune.
