Welcome back, my fellow loungers!
Thanks for checking out the chart! As usual, its chockful of great new music!
First off, congratulations to Blank & Jones for reaching the summit. Yes, thanks to your votes and everyone here, the beautiful chilled sound of My Island is number one this week! What a perfect number one to start the month of May. Springtime is upon us, as visions of the beach bewitch us all. I, for one, can't wait to climb into my linens and soak up the sunshine.
Right behind the Milchbar Boys, we find Riccardo Eberspacher at number two. His homage to the Argentinian sound is hypnotic. Stay tuned to enjoy Luna Calante.
The Queen of Jazz, Diana Krall, comes hot on Riccardo's heels at number three. Cole Porter never sounded sexier, as Diana's laidback vocals give Night & Day what feels like a heroin mix of the classic American Songbook tune.
Phigroa continues to remain in the top half of the chart. The chillout/jazz sound of Distant Voices proves his cross-genre vibe hits the spot for all of you listeners. Be sure to check out the rest of his EP, if you like this one.
Strong contenders Sambox and Thievery Corporation, and the cool collaboration of DJ Maretimo and Vladi Strecker help to make this week's chart one of the best. And with the jump into the Top Ten happening from Jazzy James Jr. (....a little jazz for my peeps... gotta love that intro!), Sugar and Spice is itchin' to get to the top.
Lots of great sounds continue, all with a little help from you. Don't forget to cast your vote for your fave at www.thisislounge.com. Don't forget to support these and all the artists on the station. It is certainly appreciated.
And keep sending me those Comments! I love to hear from listeners. Are you a café playing the station? Or just listening while sunning yourself on your backyard patio? I'd love to hear from you.
