Massive Attack, Morcheeba and Portishead to name but a few, are often credited as the pioneers of Trip-Hop. Trip-Hop is music that is slowed down with dub influences and rounded, sometimes indistinct and slurred vocals that fuse seamlessly with the music. Nothing new for John Martyn fans here, John has been singing in this way and using his voice as another instrument for many years. John's pronunciation is reminiscent of that of an educated palette tasting a fine wine. He doesn't so much sing the words as caress them and roll them around in his mouth before delivering them in his own unique way.
