There’s only one Om Lounge. With over 150,000 units sold to date, Om’s perennial downtempo series has been one of the biggest heavy-hitters in the world of lounge compilations for over a decade. This forward-thinking downtempo series now returns for it’s twelfth edition, featuring Om artists old and new, a wide selection of originals and remixes all for your grooving pleasure.
The tracks on this release are diverse, yet the multi-genre’d mix flows beautifully across the musical landscape and creates the perfect lounging vibe that only Om could curate: a classic deep house sound is kept current thanks to Miguel Migs’ “Close Your Eyes” (Osunlade’s Yoruba Soul Mix) and Soulstice’s "Love Cliché (Nightmares on Wax remix). The modern movement of post-dubby jams are represented with Edit Murphy’s “Need You” and Landslide’s “Dig Deeper (Throwing Snow Remix)”. And of course, always staying true to their San Francisco roots, Om has hometown-heroes Lance DiSardi and Blackbird Blackbird add their special Bay Area flavor to this well-rounded release.
Om Records’ new marketing agency Hello Stranger is doing a series of exclusive pool parties during the first weekend of Coachella. Located at the poolside of the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs, the three-day event is the perfect way to relax and revive after long days in the hot festival sun.
Seasoned festival-goers recognize that the key to maintaining an even keel for two straight weekends is to have regular poolside recuperation sessions with exciting talent to hydrate, feed, inspire and finally launch the festival-goer into the next round of desert madness. Hello Stranger is joining forces with dubFrequency, KRCW, and Flaunt on the grounds of this beautiful Joie de Vivre hotel to produce three days of awesome music – poolside!
Here’s the line-up of Saguaro Desert Weekender:
== Friday (April 13th) ==
Bromance & Friends (Paris x Los Angeles):
Thee Mike B
Rick Rude with VERY special guests to be announced
== Saturday (April 14th) ==
A Club Called Rhonda:

Goin’ out to all the weekend lovers out there. Took my favorite PillowTalk slow jam and bumped up the BPMs for the dancefloor. Threw on some Moombah drums, and voila! Happy Valentine’s Day y’all. Love the one, (or two or three) you’re with.
