We’ve added a whole host of talented musicians and DJs to our MoodMixes catalogue during April and May. The wide variety of genres and top quality musicianship demonstrates that we only add high-end music for background use to our website.

Here’s an overview of our latest additions. We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we do.


Electronica

If you are looking for music that creates the perfect start to an uplifting weekend then check out our hottest release, Creation and Destruction by Love Amplifier. It’s packed full of feel good dance tunes making an ideal choice for bars and clubs.

Fashion Themes from Alexander Lisenkov contains a fabulous collection of upbeat electronic dance grooves ready made for the catwalk. This album is also suitable for a broad selection of hospitality venues.

Looking for this year’s hottest summer album? There’s no better choice than another high-energy release from Vate. Cachonda is perfect for independent clubs, festivals or beach bars.


Classical

For music a little more chilled then perhaps Daniel Estrem’s album Telemann Trios on Guitar is more appropriate – wonderfully relaxing colorful classical guitar music ideal for restaurants.

Renowned talented soloist Sebastian Forster adds to his classical collection with exquisitely performed Beethoven’s Sonatas providing great energy, drama and passion in Magnificent Obsession series with Vol 6.


Alternative Rock

We’ve added some great new releases to our Alternative Rock section. London based artist Robin Grey returns with another fantastic album, More Than Today that demonstrates impeccable song writing skills and gently experimental, slightly quirky, fresh nu-folk tunes.

Also new to our alternative rock collection this month is Cole Pond by The Donnis Trio, a confident indie folk driven EP with melancholy vibes – a great choice for smaller, more intimate venues.

A strong selection of crisp, acoustic instrumental guitar sounds also comes from Jon Swift’s album Travelog. Relaxation at its finest! Bellwether, Arbutus from Nathan Mathes also consists of easy-going, laid back summery tracks perfect accompaniment to a refreshing beverage.


World

Introducing Claudia Schwab to MoodMixes! Claudia’s album Amber Sands is a combination of refreshingly original Irish, Indian, Swedish and Eastern European music styles overlaid with Austrian yodelling. This album is definitely worth a listen and would make great audio for businesses serving international cuisine.

If you run an Irish themed bar or club then don’t miss this! Ahoy and shiver your timbers to some Irish World music with a smattering of pirates from Barbepeste Official Orchestra. Bootleggers is full of fun tracks and individuality.

Luke Gartner-Brereton provides our listeners with some relaxing music therapy in his latest release, Ambrosia. Listen to the serene sounds produced by Luke in his latest release. Great for retail environments.


Jazz

We would also like to welcome Oliostere to MoodMixes. Their new release, Circonflexe, is cool progressive jazz at its finest. According to the band the concept of the album revolves around claves and rhythmic patterns making each track distinguishable.


Electro Rock

If you’re searching for instrumental pop music then try Kyven’s aptly named album For Commercial Use Only. You can even add your own lyrics if you wanted to encourage improvised singing.


New Age

Searching for music to fall asleep to, but in a good way? Strange Slumber, Music for Wonderful Dreams by Barry James was written as a present to Barry’s godson and his parents, who are avid music fans and love to fall asleep to various kinds of music – great option for spas, health clubs and meditation.


Ambient

Everyone should take the time to listen to this truly wonderful experimental album from Francois Couture! Ludovica consists of electronic, acoustic, vocal and traditional sounds. Can you hear the hand saw?

Would you like to hear your music on our MoodMixes website? You can find out how to submit your music here.  

If you run the type of business that looks for the deeper darker side of ambient, have a taste for melody driven indie folk or perhaps veer towards traditional instruments such as the lute or cello then be sure to check out our latest additions to the MoodMixes library.

Here’s our monthly roundup of some the best new music added during March.

Alternative Rock
We’re thrilled to see the return of Nathan Mathes to MoodMixes. Nathan’s new album, Recs is crammed full of impeccably crafted indie folk songs about life’s struggles and how to never give up. Easy Weather by The Bell Hours is another brilliant album that we’ve added to our alternative rock collection. Easy Weather is a sentimental take on modern rock and roll. Both albums are certainly worth adding to your business’s music collection.

If, however you are on the search for rock that’s a bit different then we recommend Swell by Hollywood Drunks. Swell is an energetic swirling vortex of rock, funk, rap and alternative brewed with elements of comedy.

Jazz
For restaurants or bars looking for background music that creates a cool vibe and exudes an air of sophistication then we highly recommend our latest addition to our Jazz library. Downtown Ride from Canadian composer Francois Couture is a fitting choice.

Ambient
Another option for background music is the aptly named album Solitude, from Julian Blackmore. Solitude consists of one 20-minute track that takes the listener on a journey into the depths of a dark ambient world.

Looking for music that’s a bit more upbeat? Then Summer 2014 by Kyven could be the answer. Positive and uplifting 80s pop with modern chops.

Classical
We’ve added a wide selection of albums to our classical section recently, particularly from lute, clarinet and cello musicians including James AkersRomualdo Barone and Alison Crum and Roy Marks.

Also new to our classical collection this month is the latest album from Daniel Estem. Daniel is our second ‘most licensed’ artist on MoodMixes. We are confident that Daniel’s new release, Bach Harpsichord Suites on Guitarwon’t disappoint and will prove to be just as popular as his previous works.

Electronica
In addition we also have a whole host of electronica new releases starting with Prisma by Philipp Weigl. Prisma oozes relaxation and eases the listener into a blissful, dreamlike state – a perfect choice for spas or simply meditating.

At the opposite end of our electronica spectrum is the faster paced, urban electronica cumbia album Exotica from Vate. Exotica would make a superb audio choice for any modern bar or club. We also love the latest release from Mike McGuillStult consists of confident, fresh new electronic sounds.

New Age
In our World category you’ll find The Lake, a new release by Hans Christian. The Lake produces an utterly captivating sound of New Age meets Indian cello. Following his magnificent debut album, Australian composer Luke Gartner-Brereton also returns to our World section with his latest release Ronroco Dreaming – a blend of classical tones with folk/Latin rhythms, an excellent choice for restaurant owners.
