The Jumpstyle music which accompanies Jumpstyle is an offspring of Happy-Hardcore and Gabber. Its tempo is between 135 and 160 BPM. Because of the big hype around the dance and music style itself in 2007 and 2008, it suffers from image-problems especially in the Netherlands. Because of this, the euphoric melodic Jumpstyle like it was made between 2006 and 2008 is not being released anymore these days. However, there are still some radio stations left, broadcasting Jump in its traditional form. The oldest Jump radio was founded in 2005 and still exists today under the name of JumpStation.FM. The style attempted a jump to American audiences with Los Angeles band, Captain Ahab. German band Scooter brought jumpstyle into the mainstream with their fully jumpstyle album Jumping All Over The World, and the Italobrothers' album Stamp! is heavily influenced by jumpstyle.
