Music For Boutique Hotels

Boutique hotels are always looking to differentiate themselves whether it is through design, concept, food, service or location but many of them forget about the music - Audio Texture can help. We don't deal in commercial music, are always on the look out for new artists and trends and leave no stone unturned to find great music that our competitors aren't able to or simply can't be bothered to find.

We could go on and on but we prefer the music to do the talking. To this end we have created numerous playlists on Deezer, Rdio and Spotify for the world to listen to. One of these we've called Music For Boutique Hotels. It's an eclectic selection which we've sequenced to flow a bit like a DJ mix or as well as we can do within the confines of the streaming service.

Here is Music For Boutique Hotels in Deezer, our preferred streaming service:

Audio Texture is an independent music consultancy specializing in putting extraordinary music in the ordinary world. We love music even more than chocolate & we constantly research, listen to & painstakingly collate what we consider to be the best music in the world. So we thought it would be a nice idea to put out a weekly radio show to spread the word about some of our musical discoveries & support the world of quality, underground music.

As well as Mixcloud the show can be found at:

Audio Texture Goes Streaming Playlist Crazy

OK it took Audio Texture a while to fully embrace streaming and all its possibilities but now we are going "streaming playlist crazy"!!

What this means is that we will be actively maintaining numerous lovingly curated and nicely sequenced  playlists across our Deezer, Rdio and Spotify accounts with Google Play Music and Youtube coming later. Perhaps we'll even embrace Apple Music eventually, once it starts working properly!

At the moment our Spotify account has the most playlist options although they will all be standardised with the same tracks by the end of next week. We have noticed that Rdio doesn't seem to  have the same extensive catalogue as Deezer & Spotify so the playlists there are currently missing a few tracks (though not too many) which also slightly affects the playlist flow but as mentioned not drastically.

So the following playlists are designed for certain businesses but that doesn't mean they're going to sound bad in your house or on your headphones! We've gone the extra mile with the selection as usual using mostly independent artists, no obvious commercial musical and daring to be a bit different. Let's face it there are already enough businesses all playing the same old music, do we really need more David Guetta, Drake, Sam Smith, Coldplay & Taylor Swift in our lives - we don't think so!

Music For Restaurants
Music For Coffee Shops (Morning & Afternoon)
Music For Boutique Hotel
Music For Bars

Here is an imagined 5 hour sophisticated eclectic soundtrack for an exclusive Boutique hotel:



We also currently have these genre specific playlists that cover our core musical interests:

Super Chilled
Chill Out
Singers, Songs & Folk
Nu-Soul
Underground Hip Hop
Jazz
Electronica (Day & Club)
Deep House
Indie/Pop
Balearic (Day & Night)
Global

Kick back to this nice chilled selection if you like:
