Downtempo is said to have originated in the late 1980s but hitting its peak in the early 1990s when a duo called Kruder & Dorfmeister started releasing downtempo remixes that featured a wide range of other genre elements such as HipHop & Pop. The sound is often described as being a mellow lofi sound featuring vintage synthesizers.

If you wanna relax and mellow out then Downtempo is for you!
