Get your study on

So finals are coming up and you need something to rage to. Study music may vary for everyone but I definitely dig that downtempo feel, with a bit of acid jazz blended with some electronic music. So pretty much that means THIEVERY CORPORATION and SOUNDTRIBE SECTOR 9 (STS9) are the dudes to jam to when your zoned in the library late at night. Thievery Corporation are pretty much the founders of the chilled music genre "downtempo". The DJ duo from D.C. get their music from all over the globe, hence "thieves". Some of my favorites by them are when they get into the Hindi music of India or Spanish music (like the merenge & tango) with that lounge feel. STS9 can be defined best as acid jazz jam band who keep their songs very interesting to say the least. It's almost like a melodic story inside your head (this could just be for me)
A couple other notable artists on the study mix- Zero 7 (another downtempo band with a chick singer who has a blazin' hot voice), Gorillaz, tango-based Gotan Project with probably one of the best remixes I've ever heard, Prefuse 73, and Ratatat (electronic). The zip file is actually quite long, about r 2 hours 32 minutes with 31 songs. Be very excited if your looking for something new to zone to while studying. chillll out.
