Marden Hill

Marden Hill are the band about whom the term ‘Trip Hop’ was first coined. They’e the link from Acid Jazz to trip Hop and pretty much every other groove based genre since. Mark Daniels, the instigator and maverick driving force of the laziest and sexiest
band in history has also been responsible for inventing ‘Big Beat’ with Beamish & Fly and various permutations of left field grooves from 45 Dip and Spacehopper to his current thing - Sugarman. Marden Hill might get round to doing something again one day too.

    @Madfly - that doesn't make them a trip-top act in any way shape or form... and big beat?!

    Ashley Beedle came up with the word Trip Hop describing a Marden Hill track he was remixing saying - 'This is fucked up, it's Hip Hop but it's trippy. It's Trip Hop! Before Massive Attack an way before Portishead

    Pretty sure Massive Attack was the first Trip-Hop band... But MH is one of the best.

    Come On is one of the most fantastic grooves i've ever heard!!It's so fucking cool, it goes under my skin every time i listen to it. Once heard on a mowax compilation it made me buy the whole album.
