Feeling down..tempo ? Here is Down with the tempo mix :)

Backbone music has often been used in movies, TV series (just think Sixth feet under) and TV commercials, but too often among the gamut of releases, it’s become hard to decipher what is exactly downtempo music. Perhaps ambient with a beat, but with different kinds of flavors of jazz, funk, soul, dub, and classic mixed into it. If you’re interested in the genre here is a good reference in the matter. But for those who want to dig more, here is a mix of songs I did, which I decided to call “Down with the tempo”, which seldom bypasses 110 BPM. If I had to pick up one standout track it would have to be Djuma Soundsystem : Les Djinns remixed by the ever great Trentemøller in a downbeat mode with spanish guitars and slow soundscapes. As usual, here is the mix in stream and the tracklisting as well. Try to find the sources of some movie samples, you’ll see, it’s funny ! Hope you guys enjoy it !
