DownTempo

I spend a lot of time listening to a musical genre called Down Tempo.  DownTempo (or Downbeat) is a laid-back electronic music style similar to ambient music, but usually with a beat or groove unlike the beatless forms of Ambient music.  Sometimes the beats are more complicated and more featured instead of being in the background, but even then they are usually less intense than other kinds of electronic music like Trance.

One of my favorite albums from this genre is “J.A.C.” by Tosca.  A duo from Vienna, Rupert Huber and Richard Dorfmeister (two heroes of the Downtempo genre), play grooves that are funky, laidback, and very original.

Because I have had a lot of fun playing with the song titled “Rondo Acapricio” I recorded it for you.  Watch the YouTube video below or the higher quality video here.

Blog & Podcast Starts This Week!

I have setup a blog and A/V Podcast Studio to write and perform for your entertainment and to get feedback on my playing and networking ideas. My blog is about:

  • Being productive and efficient with your web networking.
  • My favorite articles and productions by other writers and podcasters.
  • Communication / Sales Skills. Self Development.
  • The art of practicing your instrument.
  • Artists and releases that I think you should hear and know about.

In addition to my blog, I have setup a small A/V studio in which I will produce video and audio podcasts of myself playing tunes from jazz standards to me writing and performing parts to go along with my current favorite electronic music.  Here and there I will also produce a “PicksCast” to show you artists that I think you shouldn’t miss.
