Today Sunday, March 2, 2008 Jazzy Lounge the Station where Driftkikker landed on the 21 place of the top 25 chart with Babylon Philosophy is upgrading it’s broadcast format from 32kbps/mp3pro to 64kbps/mp3pro.
The sound quality for the casual Jazzy Lounge listener with the mp3pro plug-in will be upgraded from FM to CD.
In conjunction with the upgrade, Jazzy Lounge will have in rotation more tracks at 100 BPM or greater. Genres being eliminated from weekday rotation will be ambient, dance, most house, trip-hop, hip-hop and some electronica. Jazzy Lounge is aiming for a jazzier, funkier mix- more nu jazz, acid jazz, lounge, smooth jazz, downtempo, funk jazz, jazzy house and chill out.
The first segment of new format will probably be approximately three hours long and will be expanded throughout the day until it reaches a nine hour format.
