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 [[{{Sampling}} 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 Music/DJShadow, to the synthesizer songwriter Music/{{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 TripHop can be considered a cousin. [[ThemeNaming Many instrumental hip-hop acts have names with "DJ" in them.]]
