Trip hop has come a long way since its humble beginnings in Bristol in the early 1990s. And with any musical genre that sees wide scale appeal it evolves to fit its surroundings. Although trip hop may not have relinquished the components, which saw it garner worldwide praise during its inception, it has developed with the demanding rigors of a technological savvy landscape.

Through technology the passionate music fan, whether it is trip hop or any another genre; have been able to immerse ourselves in the pursuits we feel most passionate about. And people who have a passion for trip hop have in turn developed apps that will cater for the trip hop faithful.
