Shine – Judas and Mary

<A HREF=”http://ws.amazon.com/widgets/q?rt=tf_w_mpw&ServiceVersion=20070822&MarketPlace=US&ID=V20070822%2FUS%2Ftripptherift-20%2F8014%2Fb1902482-dd65-4844-846f-a3a6c13fe4c1&Operation=NoScript”>Amazon.com Widgets</A> For those of you who are wondering (still? this must be your first time here, so, welcome!) what is this album doing here on a “trip-hop blog” I have this to say: the facts that trippin’ the rift is my blog and Shine‘s Guillaume Simon is my Facebook friend have something to...

Screenatorium – Flyentists

I still find it really mind-boggling (shocking, actually) that Screenatorium a) isn’t HUGE (even though it has a large and dedicated fan base in Russia for whatever reason) and b) is distributing all their music for free. Including this new gem of a release, eagerly awaited by yours truly among many many other fans of...

DJ Cam – Seven

The man who gave us Mad Blunted Jazz and The French Connection. The man who defined the genre (hate the cliche but there’s no way around it, ’cause he did) and probably influenced every single downtempo producer in France and many hundreds outside of it....

Doctor FLAKE – FLAKE UP

I feel like I need a new Category here at trippin’ the rift, called something like “Kick-ass French beats”. France became the main exporter of dark electronica awesomeness – we covered Screenatorium and Hugo Kant recently, and now it’s time to take a chill pill prescribed by Doctor FLAKE. Yes, French trip-hop for the most...

Chinese Man – Racing With The Sun

There are albums that are great for listening to while painting a...

Djeh – Screenatorium/Asleep We Live/Asa Zen’ Seï (Lyon, France)

Interesting (to me) fact – ever since I started writing this blog probably over 90% of the music I listen to is independent, cherished by a few but not ever seen on TV or heard on the radio or written about in magazines. The funny part is – I don’t miss the “Big Music” at...
