Instrumental Hip Hop
Though beats are sometimes considered an afterthought in rap music, Instrumental Hip-Hop makes them the main focus. Vocals—when they appear at all—are either sampled, or by guest artists. There are a number of different approaches to Instrumental Hip-Hop, from the more jazzy, downtempo sounds of DJ Vadim, to the genre-hopping DJ Shadow, to the synthesizer songwriter Rjd2. But in general, Instrumental Hip-Hop will usually incorporate a number of musical styles (what styles exactly depends on the individual act), but all rooted in hip-hop. Sampling is also quite common in this particular genre of music. Turntablism is a subgenre focused solely around use of the Turntable as an instrument, and Trip Hop can be considered a cousin. Many instrumental hip-hop acts have names with "DJ" in them.
