um portishead goes without saying. i've never heard tricky, lamb, or faithless. Thanks for the recommend. I saw SP way back in the nineties, when they were a one hit wonder to the commercial world. The show as quite decent.

Tricky was a part of Massive Attack. His solo work is pretty experimental, Mazinquaye is an amazing album but the rest are pretty shitty if I had to be honest.......

All their albums are awesome, one of the best live shows i've ever been to!

 

Most people hated their last album, mezazine but shits off the hook...sad news, they dont exist anymore as they were:(

talk about mood music..

"tear drop" by massive attack can never be played just once..

 

other inspiring stuff I come across and have to put on the record player....Morcheeba..Thievory Corporation, kruder and dorfmeister, hooverphonic..(sometimes not)..dj krush..self titled album..and much much more

 

of course my favorite song of all time is "across the universe" whether its the beattles,fiona apple or eligh doing it..its awesome..

 

okay now back to my de la soul

-thievery corporation are one of the greatest down tempo outfits around.

-Ursula 1000 is down with thievery's 18th St, lounge. check out Ursula 1000 as well

-Tosca is another good one

-DJ Krush

-DJ Cam (some of his stuff)

 

I love down tempo:idea:

faithless are probably the best band i can think of rite now. tunes such as "insomnia", "salva mea", "deifting away", "we come 1", "tarantula", "1 step to far" are fucking amazing

Blue Lines is absolutely amazing, Unfinished Sympathy is almost too good to listen to :eek:

 

other similarish stuff i like & recommend would be...

 

Kruder & Dorfmeister : K & D Sessions! remixes of Depeche Mode, Lamb, Roni Size etc.

Thievery Corporation : good stuff, was hearing about their 18th street lounge, anyone go?

Rockers Hi-Fi : similar to Thievery Corp. but more dubby, sometimes jazzy and/or latin also

Cinematic Orchestra : the best modern jazz/beats kind of thing i've heard, worked with Pharoah Sanders, Fontella Bass & Roots Manuva, outstanding live

Kid Loco : very mellow french stuff, almost coma inducing, A Grand Love Story is the one to get

DJ Cam : another french guy, slo-mo hip-hop beats with jazzness, if you like Dj Krush you'll love

Gotan Project : more french, fusion of dubby beats with latin, sounds an odd mix, but it works

 

suppose some of that doesn't sound very Massive Attack-ish, but they are pretty unique, just stuff that would maybe/probably be appreciated by someone into Massive attack...

 

haven't heard hooverphonic, what are they like?

 

as for Faithless, hearing just that name makes me angry :mad: can't fucking stand them
