    Yeah I only got into trip-hop quite recently but these are my suggestions:

    Aim - Cold Water Music
    Amon Tobin - The Foley Room
    Howie B - Music For Babies
    Tricky - Maxinquaye (Think that's the right spelling)
    UNKLE - Psyence Fiction
    Anything by Portishead

    One of my fav Trip Hop tunes is: Massive Attack - Dissolved Girl, you will recognize it from The Matrix when Neo's asleep at his computer.

    Aim and DJ Shadow are sraight up Hip Hop if you ask me...

    Examples include the Deltron 3030 (album), artists Cannibal Ox, Mos Def, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and producers Dan The Automator and Madlib.

    That from wiki was the biggest load of shit ever.

    The Aim Fabriclive (17) is class. highly reccomended, id say it has elements of trip hop.

    I can't think of any artist that is entirely trip hop, its quite a far out style and so most that make it tend to make something else at the same time.

    Check the Mushroom Jazz Compilations by Mark Farina (lots of good bits on those mixes)

    Just heard this LP called 14 by a guy named John Kennedy - really great stuff

    Kruder & Dorfmeister make nice music, Portishead are the masters, lotta nice stuff out there.
