Sometimes the beat can be restrained, sometimes more complicated and more featured instead of being in the background. However, the beats are usually less intense than other kinds of electronic music like techno or house music.

Downtempo music started to surface when DJs and Promoters would bring down the vibe with slower rhythm and gentler music upon approaching sunrise.


Trip hop, consisting of elements from hip hop, downtempo and electronica got very popular in Europe. Mo' Wax was one of the first labels to introduce this kind of sound in early 1990s.
Trip hop has influenced artists outside the genre who utilized the genre. Kylie Minogue, Madonna, and Radiohead, just to name a few, have incorporated trip hop in their work.
Trip hop has spawned several subgenres which have evolved over the ages, including Illbient, (dub-based trip hop with influences of ambient and industrial hip hop), all part of a post-trip hop scene which encompasses a wider range of styles and influences.


This screen is annoying you for a reason.


It's part of a desaster recovery plan.

Let me explain.
It's been five years now that I provide the service of curating Creative Commons music and a comfortable free stream/download function. This site gives exposure to artists that do outstanding work and it currently attracts roughly 50k visitors/month. It's fun doing the site and I'm happy to spend time and money to support the Creative Commons idea. I never considered placing a donation button somewhere.

But as we know - shit happens.

I make a living by creating things. I have a small workshop where I do handcrafted wooden furnitures that I try to sell. I do websites for small business owners, start-ups and the like. Some djing too. Just enough to make ends meet.
Things changed dramatically yesterday night when burglars managed to get in my house. The list of things they stole is rather long and depressing. In short, they took what's portable. My wood working tools (all of them), my laptop, harddrive, a phone and so on. Basically all stuff that's crucial to make a living. Did I lock my house? You bet. Does my insurance cover for it? No. Police? Funny idea.

Back to square one.

I'm typing this on an eight years old laptop with a broken keyboard, even the burglars skipped it.

Why should that bother you?

Well, you came here looking for free music. Momentarily it doesn't look like I can update/maintain the site. Remember, no laptop. Furthermore I have to focus on getting my tools replaced which, of course, has top priority. Tough times ahead of me.

Now here's the thing:

I'm kindly asking for donations that help me to get back on track. Please do if you can afford drinking less and donating a few bucks instead.


or contact me on twitter @deeload if you have questions or an even better idea.
