A form of modern, relaxed, electronically enhanced lounge music. "Chillout" music is sometimes referred to as acid jazz. It originated in the lounge scenes of major cities such as New York and Paris. First gaining its popularity amongst young, rich, often intellectual urbanites, it has begun to grow in popularity and spread on a wide scale. The genre includes a wide range of electronic interpretations of traditional music types such as jazz, bossanova and easy listening.
The growing popularity of chillout music is slowly widening the influence of lounge scenes across the United States and abroad.
