Lounge & Cocktail

Lounge music evokes the Madmen era of the early/ mid-1960s bachelor pad. The sound is generally upbeat and light using jazz elements mixed with pop sounds of the time. There is definitely a retro quality to these tracks. There is also a little bit of kitsch as elements of Hawaiian and Latin dance crazes (mambo, bossa nova, cha-cha) crept into the sound. Lounge music can also evoke easy-listening or “canned music” (muzak) which was meant to act as a type of sonic wallpaper in hotels, casinos or other public spaces. We have also included a few modern tracks that use the lounge vibe to create an updated take on the bachelor pad.
