Check out Surrounded or Relish The Trough too, better than his new stuff IMO.

I've got to second Dabrye, although I'd recommend his Instrmntl album from 2002. Raw instrumental hip hop with an analog flavor doesn't get a lot better in my opinion.

This may be the most obvious artist to point to in a thread like this, but Prefuse 73 has done his fair share of twisted hip hop. I reached my saturation point with him a long time ago, and haven't followed his output closely in recent years, but his early stuff, Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives and Extinguished Outtakes in particular, might be up your alley.

This might not be the right genre, but when I think of the phrase "Glitch Hop" I sort of think about Pretty Lights.

All of his music is available for download from his site (like 6 albums worth) and it's pretty good. I saw him live about 2 months ago, and I felt like the live show was much more "glitchy" than you get with his albums, but it's still there. I really dig his tracks, and like I said, he gives it away. If it's not what you seek, then ignore it :D

His site is at http://www.prettylightsmusic.com

Some of my favorite examples:

I've posted this question on other forums and got pointed in the direction of this,

Now I don't know if this is "Glitch Hop" (as its a new genre to me at the moment) but it's pretty cool! Big fat funky beats with crunchy, wonky saw/square bass sounds and gated synths. I'm really loving it. Been listening to it on my iPod at work for days now. :)
