Every Bargrooves fan has their favourite edition which gets re-played over and over, never getting old. Bargrooves’ timeless appeal is due to the number of truly great songs that make the cut; there’s no filler, every track has classic elements, whether it’s a soul groove, a captivating melody, or an irresistible beat.        

Bargrooves Lounge is the latest in the series, bringing it back to that sophisticated DJ-bar vibe that inspired the Bargrooves concept. The album is packed with effortlessly smooth contemporary tracks from the last few months, vocal records that tie melody and upbeat tempos seamlessly together, alongside more established tracks that sound just as good today as they ever did.

Highlights include Hercules & Love Affair’s seminal nu-disco hit ‘Do You Feel The Same?’ (6th Borough Project Remix), ‘Happiness Pt 2’ from emerging artist Eli Escobar and Peven Everett ‘Can’t Do Without’ (Peven’s New Mix), supplying the mid-tempo grooves, while Bargrooves favourite Tim Deluxe’s ‘Unsung Hero’, Kings Of Tomorrow ‘Vibes’ and Kaine ft Kathy Diamond ‘Love Saves The Day’ bring the mixes down a notch to create an engaging narrative of feel-good music.

Whatever your drink of choice, Bargrooves Lounge is the heady accompaniment for you to kick back and soak up the music. Grab your mixer, your speakers, a couple of friends and some ice - Bargrooves Lounge is your soundtrack to enjoying the finer things in life.
