While all this was going on, some producers were going in a different direction. In 1994, the genre of 'trip-hop' emerged as a combination of slowed down breakbeats, hip hop tempo, but usually without rap. Trip-hop also had elements of drum and bass, ambient and jungle thrown in: it was originally very much a British genre. Bringing this genre to popularity were artists such as Portishead, Tricky and Massive Attack. Leftfield, who were primarily a house act at the time, even got in on the act with their Leftism album. Trip-hop wasn't necessarily relaxing like ambient music; it was often moody and dark. The one thing it did have in common with ambient music, however, was its slowed-down tempo. Another development was a trend towards melodic instrumental electronica.
