The African Lounge Experience by Afronaut

The African Lounge Experience merges unmistakable African grooves and beats with the sensual pulse of lounge music to create the perfect backdrop to a balmy African night.

With track names that mean things like "Let me free!" and "Stretch Out and Relax", you can expect this album to be filled with chilled grooves and soothing rhythms that gently create a relaxed atmosphere like no other.

The Afronauts consist of three young South African producers - Gavan Eckhart, Garrick van der Tuin and Joel Joseph Klein - who have worked with South African musical legends like Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Stimela and many more.

On this album they have worked with some of South Africa's top session musicians in order to bring together a unique and rare recording of African lounge music.

"Lounge music takes various genres, various influences and makes it accessible. It's interconnected, it's cross-pollinated," say the Afronauts.

If you enjoy the sounds of Café Del Mar, Buddha Bar and Café Costas, the chances are high you'll be playing this album on repeat. If you like the Lounge genre and are new to African Lounge music, this is a great album to begin your African music collection, as it fuses chilled international sounds with unmistakable African rhythms.

Earthy browns and warm oranges merge with attractive and classy modern artwork on the packaging of this album to create an alluring aura that provides a strong clue to the laid-back and almost floaty atmosphere of the music.

The Start of the African Cream
After working in property development for many years, founder and CEO Alex Agulnik decided that creating a record label that celebrated African music was the best way to follow his passion. While involved with Digital Cupboard, the biggest Internet site in Africa at the time, Agulnik realised there was a huge international thirst for music from the African continent - and it needed to be quenched.
