This is one of my favorite genres of music. I'm going to update this thread as much as possible with new artists and songs, tour dates, music videos & other things of the sort to kind of make this thread a pet project archival go-to spot for my insatiable appetite for this kind of music. If you're new to the genre, give it a shot - there's no wrong place to start. If you're a current listener, please post your favorites and everything else you want.

Also, I was thinking about starting a vinyl collection of purely downtempo artists but a lot of it is quite hard to find. I think it'd be pretty expensive in the long run as well, but definitely worth it. I don't have any sort of serious collection of anything and I think this would be pretty badass. If anyone has any tips on where to find vinyl, let me know here or PM me.

For now, I'm just going to post a couple of artists and videos to get it started while I organize my music collection and get it all together.

Just discovered Little People via Spotify, I see you listed him in the first post. Can this guy write a bad song? I'm a half dozen tracks into Mickey Mouse Operation, and so far, the answer is no. I'm in love. No homo.

Phaeleh is fucking mind blowing, stumbled across his material on Spotify off a weird recommendation it was like "So you like Hybrid? Check out Phaeleh", I don't see much of a connection between the two but damn glad it recommended him. Whistling in the Dark is without a doubt one of the best tracks he has made.

Also on the topic of Emika pretty good video and track:

Some of these may not be downtempo necessarily but all are in a similar vein. Some Lounge, Trip-Hop, Chillwave, etc included.

Airis amazing. I'm including entire albums because everyone should listen to them from start to finish.



Morcheeba


Hooverphonic

Ah thank God, thanks man. I haven't ever heard Memory House, Bukem, Memory Tapes or Washed Out and you reminded me of some classic material.
