  • Acid Jazz = funk + electronics +jazz & disco influences
  • "it's just shitty fucking pop music with like the tiniest of funk elements" Doesn't seem like you have already listened to acid jazz... I think you're confusing acid jazz with smooth jazz.
  • Electronic Chill Trip Hop, Mysterious Jazz (Air Relaxing Mixtape Vol,6) by DJ Gami.K https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2KY3dexIc4
  • this genre fucking sucks, as it's neither acid or jazz, it's just shitty fucking pop music with like the tiniest of funk elements (like a majority of pop music)
  • Capital Cities is totally Acid Jazz
  • *listen later*
  • Wa Creans is Japanese music label. http://wacreans.com/ I recommend my label artists. Sounds like: abstract, soundscape, trip hop, jazz, Japanese picturesque scenery & rhythm. Relax and enjoy.
  • Urban Acid Jazz. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWyhhcaiuPM
