HÆLOS – Full Circle

Cultivated by names like DJ Shadow, Tricky, and Nellee Hooper, the formative years of trip-hop were defined by the moody atmospherics of its associated artists and collectives like The Wild Bunch. The genre’s appeal extended fully in 1991 with the release of Massive Attack’s Blue Lines, a zenith of sorts for artists and listeners who preferred their dance music with an extra helping of melancholy. In the years of hyphenated descriptions since, trip-hop’s influence has found its way into a wide array of genres, from underground metal acts like Ulver to more pop-oriented artists like FKA twigs.
