Trip hop ホープ Hope and Soar #triphop #chill #electronic

I know I’ve had a lot of chilled tracks this week but that happens when I’m tired. Here are a couple more lovely tunes but with more of a trip hop air and some crunchier beats from Common Tiger and Day Brake.

Day Brake (Wouter Van Houdt) from Belgium first with Soar. A relaxed but hip hop beat swinging tune with a great use of old radio samples to drive the tune along and adding some extra colour to the track. The tune rests heavily on the beats and has a loping grace to it. Despite some broken beats the whole thing is lovely and dreamy. Give up, lie back and let this wash over you.

Next, Common Tiger from Oregon, USA. A more piano driven track but still with some crisp hip hop beats. There’s something terribly romantic about the track, even if the title Hope seems to be taken from a MLK quote “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” The combination of synth piano and almost harp strings makes this have a lovelorn wistfulness. Endearing.

Available from Bandcamp on a ‘name your price’ basis.
