Downtempo Radio Stations

Downtempo music (or sometimes cited as chill or chill out) is a style that is very akin to ambient music and is often intended to induce a sense of calm and relaxation on its listener. Although it is generally quite similar to beatless ambient music, downtempo itself usually has a beat or a groove with its tempo often being slower than that of other types of electronic music. Downtempo is a genre of electronic music similar to ambient, but with a greater emphasis on rhythm, and is not as earthy as trip-hop. Examples may incorporate “slow, tranquilized beats, garish synths, and melodies that sound like they were filtered through the AM radio of an ’84 Dodge Dart.” The 1990s brought on a wave of slower paced music which was played throughout chillout rooms—the relaxation sections of the clubs or dedicated sections at electronic music events. Downtempo music started to surface around Ibiza, when DJs and promoters would bring down the vibe with slower rhythm and gentler electronic music upon approaching sunrise. In the late 1980s, trip hop emerged from Bristol, which combined elements of hip hop beats, drum and bass breaks, and ambient atmospheres at a lower tempo.
