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.
