When Cantopop meets Trip Hop
A Trip Hop piece:
In the Western Music industry now, Lady Gaga mixes Pop with Techno with great success.
In the Asian Music world way back, Leslie Cheung already introduced Canto-pop into another level.
Similar to the above, he was also best known for his flamboyant fashion performances.
Original Piece of ‘Red’:
Not many people dig this performance. Some feel that it is too heavy, some commented that it is too ‘gayish’.
I feel it is just perfect, if you look beyond Gender, and view the performer as a performer, as an individual, it is very captivating.
p/s: Trip hop (or trip-hop) is a genre consisting of downtempo electronic music, originating in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom, especially Bristol. Deriving from “post”-acid house, the term was first used by the British music media and press as a way to describe the more experimental variant of breakbeat which contained influences of soul, funk and jazz. It has been described as “Europe’s alternative choice in the second half of the ’90s”, and “a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognisable.” Trip hop music fuses several styles and has much in common with other genres; it has several qualities similar to ambient music, its drum-based breakdowns share characteristics with hip hop, and it also contains elements of house, dance, R&B and dub reggae. Trip hop can be highly experimental in nature.
