Each album is mixed by DJ Stéphane Pompougnac and (I suppose) has the music that's played in the lounge, bar, lobby, whatever of the hotel that year, although I really might be wrong on that. All I know really is that the music makes incredible background music for late nights in front of a computer.
"The Wicked Thoughts of You"
This is another set of music I stumbled upon randomly one day. I was browsing through the electronic music at Best Buy one day, and saw a set of boxed CD's with "IMPORT" stickers on each of them. Not one to ignore interesting packaging, I checked em out and decided to get one. (Yes, it was the sexy girls on the covers that caught my eye first... Don't judge me.) I really liked what I heard, so I started getting more of them.
"My Funny Valentine"
I currently only have the first 12 of the 15 releases as of yet, but I plan to obtain the most recent three(3) somewhat soon if I can. If you're a fan of down-tempo or chill-out music, I definitely recommend any of the Hôtel Costes collections.
"Why Did We Fire The Gun"
