Lounging with DJ Dimsa

Lounge Downtempo & Dance

Welcome to my first blog. I thought I would begin with a brief description of what Lounge music is:

Lounge music is a retrospective description of music popular in the 1950s and 1960s encompassing the exotica, easy listening, and space age pop genres. It is a type of mood music meant to evoke in the listeners the feeling of being in a place — a jungle, an island paradise, outer space, et cetera — other than where they are listening to it. [1] The range of lounge music encompasses beautiful music-influenced instrumentals, modern electronica (with chillout, Nu-jazz and downtempo influences), while remaining thematically focused on its retro-space-age cultural elements. The earliest type lounge music appeared during the 1920s and 1930s, and was known as Light music. Contemporaneously, the term lounge music also denotes the types of music played in hotels (the lounge, the bar), casinos, and piano bars.

I first picked up on Lounge (Jazz Funk) back in the mid 70's with the likes of Lonni Liston Smith, Roy Ayers, Eddie Henderson, Herbie Hancock to name a few. Through the 80's & 90's Lounge became known as Acid Jazz. As we progressed into 00's Deephouse (Jazzy house) and Nu Jazz was introduced.
