A place where you can chill out, unwind, and get lost in the grooveclose
Want to kick back, relax and just mellow out to some good tunes? Then lounge music is the choice for you. Ambient beats that really set the mood of any casual gathering, fancy soiree, or even ‘me’ time when you just want to run a nice bath and tune in to the music while tuning out the world.
Lounge music takes you on a journey, where you can ride out on mellow waves of melody that carry you to different places all over the universe, from the white, sandy beaches of Hawaii, to the jungles of Peru, all the way to outer space.
Listen to bands like Portishead and Thievery Corporation; the sensual vocals combined with soothing instrumentals are enough to calm even the most frazzled nerves. Then, experience the magic of Buddha Bar from the comfort of your own home, vibing to electro-ethnic rhythms and tribal sounds.
Lounge music is innovative, but it has withstood the test of time. It is not a single genre of music but an umbrella term for Smooth Jazz, Post-Rock, Cabaret, and Electronic Synth music. The emphasis is on instrumentality, where the music is just as important as the lyrics, perhaps even more.
The ultimate chill out nirvana, lounge music is created by layering different instruments to create down-tempo music. More often than not, these instruments are layered with nature sounds like birdsong, babbling brooks, the gushing sea and waterfalls and a gentle breeze, designed to transport you to different beautiful locations around the world. It’s pure escapism; it doesn’t impose too heavily on your senses but still uplifts and relaxes in a way that is absolutely effortless and effervescent.
Lounge music has the power to soothe your emotions, create a laid-back atmosphere, and help us decompress from the stresses and rigors of life. It engages the mind and revitalizes the soul, which is why you’ll find lounge music played everywhere, from spas to bars.
Lounge music is serious, fun, and simple yet complex. It can be electronic, made with a simple 4×4 beat, or a passionate Latin Mambo with a deep percussive sound. Lounge music can also be a romantic French chanson or an alternative “shower” sound with echoing voices and a haunting melody.
People just call it ‘chill out’ music because that’s what it helps you to do at the end of the day. Chill out, lay back, and relax. It’s just easy listening.
