Looking For More Trip Hop

I don't know what it is about this type of music but I love it.  I've been listening to the sneaker pimps, portishead, and hooverphonic for a while now but I really want to find some more albums of the same style to listen to.  It's so atmospheric.  If anyone knows anything similar..please let me know.

Caustic is right! Try UNKLE..their first album was great, very trippy. Everything But The Girl and Weekend Pla<x>yers are nice and similar in a lot of ways. Oh, I can't forget Thievery Corporation, Morcheeba, and D'nell.

causticstorm beat me to it,yesyes.<br />
I'd add a band called Tipsy,though you could call them"experimental"...trip tease is a fine album.<br />
Ariwa music and the great master mixer Mad Professor have also produced some fine trip-hop over the years,happy hunting.<br />

She is still doing things herself though, and has put together a video that highlights the true effort that goes into making a video yourself, with or without a team. Please take a look at the minute long clip on this link:<br />
