Crustation - some mellow great trip-hop

Crustation is formed by Ian Dark, Stig Manley and Mark Taylerthe, three producers from Bristol. Aren't they all from there?:) In the 80s they played in bands with Adrian Utley of Portishead. For their late Crustation songs they used the collaboration of female vocalist Bronagh Slevin (great voice!!). In 1994 they released two EPs under Cup of Tea Records (label of Monk & Canatella, Statik Sound System and Purple Penguin). Released their only album Bloom in 1997, under the name of Crustation with Bronagh Slevin. They do a mellow and dreamy trip hop.
I got Bloom and it's amaizingly beautiful. Try it if you can get your hands on that one!
