NEVER GIVE UP
A little less chill, a little more funk. That’s the vibe of „Never Give Up“ in a nutshell. Grown up with funky bass lines, danceable grooves and Jazz chords Gold Lounge mixes these early influences with electronic music which he discovered later in life. „I deeply fell in love with artists like Moroder and Kraftwerk as they represented a breath of fresh air for my ears,“ says Michele Felloni aka Gold Lounge.
And with this album he has created a wonderful blend of analogue, funky sounds and electronic music. Female and male vocals complete this mood lifting album.
The album’s title track is an easy going disco song with brass elements and a „Let’s do this“ attitude that you won’t be able to resist. Still Gold Lounge shows with songs like „I Need Time“ that Chillout music is a huge part of his musical home.
So put on your dancing shoes or just make yourself comfortable – whatever you choose to do, just „Never Give Up“.
As Gold Lounge is located in Bergamo, Italy this song also marks a spark of hope to him due to the critical health situation that especially Italian citizens currently suffer from caused by the Corona virus.
When Gold Lounge named his upcoming album „Never Give Up“ none of us could have imagined how important messages as these could be to the world only a few weeks later.
Let’s stay strong together and dance – even if we’re alone at home. We’ll never be lonesome.
After 7 years from the release of Spirals ,his first album, Gold Lounge reworked and reissued the best album tracks to bring them to a new life with brand new sounds and atmospheres.
Spirals the title track has been totally remixed with a progressive house style and now it's ready to fire up the dancefloor.
Follow the wind ,compared to the previous version that was only instrumental , now has gained a melodic and catching choirs.
Sahara Mon Amour ,this track has a etno-beat heart with a pulsing bass.
Imagine yourself sitting in a relaxing hammock on a terrace of an African Hotel facing the savannah at the sunset...this kind of vision is the one that inspired me when I wrote African Hotel Suite.
The Funky Lounge it's a lounge track with a funk soul that in this new version has been reinforced in order to make you move your head and not only..
The last but not least is Arctic Symphony ,this is a track not available on the official release but it's free to download from this page.
“Floating” starts with the sensual track “Fallin’ in Love”, in which the vocals sway like a white curtain moved by the summer breeze. Totally in the flow with an easy beat and the piano hook.
The album contains twelve tracks in total, few of them have been released earlier on various compilations, the majority of the songs however are unreleased.
One of the new songs is named “All That We Are”. With its warm pulse it welcomes the evening in a beach bar and asks you to choose: Bahama Mama or Piña Colada?
The title track of this album “Floating” mirrors the dreamy and soft-coloured cover in a perfect way. Purely instrumental the song flows in harmonious beauty.
“Pure love” is the last song in the tracklist. You’ll be watching the sunset comfortably thoughtful while beautiful strings and pianos take you to places of pure beauty and craving.
Dreaming, wallowing and “Floating” – just like this album’s name.
On November 2012 Sine Music released the second album by Gold Lounge on CD and as a download at all well-known online stores.

The album’s title ‘Double Life’ is a metaphor for the lifestyle of the author ,one side of his life conforms to the grayness of everyday life, but nights and at weekends the other side explodes with the colourful, vibrant creativity of a Musician and producer.
This Album reached the 4th position on the Deutsche Chillout Charts and13th position on iTunes electronic music chart.
