Je suis Guido van der Meulen et j’habite aux Pays-Bas dans une petite ville appelée Geleen.

Mon amour pour la musique Lounge a commencé durant mes vacances à Bali. A cette époque, ma vie était très stressante et ces vacances m’ont ouvert les yeux sur un monde de détente et de paix intérieure. J’ai acheté un CD Chillout dans l’un des marchés locaux balinais. Je me souviens encore de la chaleur du soleil du matin alors que j’étais au bord de la mer et que je découvrais le genre de Chillout. J’étais si bien, que je me sentais obligé d’en découvrir plus. Je n’avais jamais ressenti ça auparavant.

Une fois revenu à la maison après mes vacances, j’avais 20 albums dans mes valises. Ce moment a donné une nouvelle direction à ma vie et maintenant je passe mes journées à composer des compilations Chillout et Downtempo. Chaque fois que je commence un nouveau mix, mon esprit remonte à ce matin là à Bali, le matin où tout a commencé ! Guido's Lounge Café - RapTz.com

Maintenant, grâce à cet amour de la musique Lounge, j’ai beaucoup d’amis à travers le monde qui sont inspirés comme moi (artistes, producteurs, maisons de disques, stations de radio etc.) !

My name is Guido van der Meulen, I’m happily married to my beautiful wife Astrid and I live in the Netherlands in a small town called Geleen.

My love for Lounge Music started during a vacation on the island of Bali. At that time, my life was very stressful and this particular vacation opened my eyes to a world of relaxation and inner peace to that allowed me to listen more carefully to music. While I was there, I bought a Chillout CD in one of the local Balinese markets and to this day, I still remember the warmth of the morning sun as I sat by the sea and listened to the CD and discovered the Genre of Chillout for the first time!

As I listened, the music that came from my laptop put me in such a beautiful place emotionally that I felt compelled to discover more. I had never felt that peaceful before and for sure, it was a life-changing moment.

When I arrived home from the vacation, I had 20 albums in my suitcase. That is how it started for me. That one moment was so inspirational!

It gave my life a new direction and now I spend my days putting together the kind of Chillout and Downtempo compilations that inspired me so much all those years ago.

Every time I start a new mix, my mind goes back to that morning in Bali; the morning that started it all!

And now, thanks to this love of Lounge music, I have many friends throughout the world that find themselves inspired in similar ways (artists, producers, record labels, radio stations etc.) and I also have a great time running my virtual (Guido’s) Lounge Café on FaceBook. The popularity of the page is growing rapidly and every day I discover new friends!
