• auto-corrections: Stéphane Pompougnac / the Hôtel Costes series

    Stéphane Pompougnac is a French House DJ, musician, composer and producer who was born in the South of France.

    Very early on, Stéphane was fascinated by different kinds of music, listening to pop, rock and new wave. The real trigger happened in the late 80s, when he discovered house. One day in 1997 in Paris, when he was already a fairly famous DJ, he met up with Jean-Louis Costes, who asked him to mix music at his hotel restaurant. Very soon they had the idea of a compilation which could spread worldwide the spirit of the Hôtel Costes, this mythic glamorous place. The first compilation quickly became an undeniable reference. Over a dozen more successful and intense compilations followed.

    Then he was asked to deejay everywhere in the world by haute couture designers such as Gucci, actresses like Cameron Diaz, and eventually remixed "What It Feels Like for a Girl" for Madonna… Yet Stéphane Pompougnac is not only a DJ - he is also an accomplished musician, composing and producing his own songs…

    i knew about Hotel Costes bit earlier, but my DCL couldnt offer me more than few songs of it. But the day of my lucky came - i downloaded whole albums vol.1 - vol.6, just with the vol.7 was harder, i had to wait it for few weeks, like no others and still have not all songs. The total good is the fact each album are in playlist format, hate pauses between songs, or big variation of styles near (u know listen something from eassylistening and than rock hit come, feewww). so it becomes very comfortable to check out whole albums on my way to and from univ on bus. I totally got under Hotel Costes sounds control. i will worship them :)) my favorite vol.2. very relaxing but not sleepy; energising, but not that u would get nervous u want to dance in bus but for obvious reasons dont do that, its just sound which invite to feel deeper trance in music dj's created. …
