I’m excited because Toronto Lounge Radio is officially ON-AIR, streaming online from Toronto (Canada) the finest Mix of Chillout and Soft House Music, non-stop 24/7, with NO advertising.
Our music is carefully selected by human beings, not cold computer algorithms. All tracks are picked one by one, because we want to give our listeners a unique sound journey.
Besides Chill and Soft House Music, on Toronto Lounge Radio you will find also some Smooth Jazz, World Music, Electro, Tropical and Deep House, thrown in from time to time for good measure.
Our Music selection is really eclectic, but I personally find that the tracks fit well together and provide you with an original soundtrack for whatever activity you are doing: working, commuting, studying, having dinner with friends, relaxing on the sofa or in bed.
Here an explanation of the music genres, courtesy of Wikipedia, although I think it would be easier to listen to the radio to get an idea, than reading what we play on this article LOL
Chillout and Lounge Music
Chillout (also known as Chill or Lounge music) is a general term for music whose purpose is to make the listener feel relaxed, inducing a sense of calm and relaxation. Chillout covers various styles including Ambient, Easy listening and Downtempo. It is characterised by its slow tempo and mellow sounds.
Smooth Jazz is a radio format (and as some would consider, a sub-genre) of Jazz music. Although the term itself uses the word Jazz, musically the genre does not have all that much in common with traditional Jazz music, instead it is generally more orientated towards Smooth Pop and RnB.
Tropical House, often abbreviated as Trop House, is a fairly new House Music subgenre. It is characterized by a summer feeling, incorporating instruments such as saxophones, steel drums, electro synths, and marimbas. The vibe is generally lighter and more relaxed compared to other genres such as Deep House.
A (slightly) slower variant of House (around 120 BPM) with greater influences from Soul, Jazz, and Funk.
World Music is a musical category encompassing many different styles of music from around the globe. It includes many forms of ethnic music, indigenous music, folk music, neo traditional music, and music where more than one cultural tradition, such as non-Western music and Western popular music, intermingle.
Well, now sit back, relax and enjoy the music on Toronto Lounge Radio!
