Disc Jockey


My name is Guido van der Meulen, I am married to my beautiful wife Astrid and I live in the Netherlands in a small town called Geleen. My love for Lounge Music started during a vacation on the island of Bali.At that time, my life was very stressful and this particular vacation opened my eyes to a world of relaxation and inner peace to that allowed me to listen more carefully to music.

While I was there, I bought a Chillout CD in one of the local Balinese markets and to this day, I still remember the warmth of the morning sun as I sat by the sea and listened to the CD and discovered the Genre of Chillout for the first time!As I listened, the music that came from my laptop put me in such a beautiful place emotionally that I felt compelled to discover more. I had never felt peaceful before and for sure, it was a life-changing moment.The inner peace that I experienced at that moment was so moving that I had to head back to the market to find more of this music.When I arrived home from the vacation, I had 20 albums in my suitcase.That is how it started for me.That one moment was so inspirational!It gave my life a new direction and now I spend my days putting together the kind of Chillout and Downtempo compilations that inspired me so much all those years ago.

Every time I start a new mix, my mind goes back to that morning in Bali; the morning that started it all!

And now, thanks to this love of Lounge music, I have many friends throughout the world that find themselves inspired in similar ways (artists, producers, record labels etc.) and I also have a great time running my virtual (Guido’s) Lounge Café on Face Book. The popularity of the page is growing rapidly and every day I discover new friends!It is true that we never know what life brings us and so we have to make the best of every situation! I did exactly that and now my days are no longer stressful, I love life and someday soon, I will be going back to Bali to get some more CD’s
