One Hundred Fifty: Trip Hop

“But the thoughts we try to deny/Take a toll upon our lives/We struggle on in depths of pride/Tangled up in single minds.” – Portishead, “It Could Be Sweet”

Friday, May 30th

My musical taste hit the pause button on the year 1998. I hold a brief appreciation for anything created beyond that point, but I will always meander back to deep house, breakbeats, and trip hop. I had the chance to see Portishead live a few years ago and it reminded me what a beautiful merge trip hop made of blues and beat culture.

It reminds me of my best times in Canada…in the company of musicians, theatre people, and fire dancers. Back when I grooved daily. I’m going to start a mix to get my body moving…

What type of music makes your heart sing?
