Sneaker Pimps

11 11 2009

Appropriately categorized as British trip-hop . Sneaker Pimps pioneered the genre.  Releasing their first album in 1996, the group found their name from an article which described the “Sneaker Pimp “, a man the Beastie Boys hired to find rare kicks. Between albums , the group switched vocalists from a male to female voice. The mixture of vocals is reflective in the album “Bloodsport” . Bop your head to the beats.
