What are the best hip hop albums that aren't part of the rap subgenre?
How about actual "jazz hop"? I.e. not dull sampling from old records.
It's electro and downtempo, slightly technoish too.
Techno-based downtempo: good
Hiphop/breaks based downtempo: bad
I can post some good un's in that category too though. Generally (like nearly everything posted here) it's weak and aimless as hell though.
I came to mention DJ Spooky, and then someone said something stupid which I responded to. Here's another good one.
