Own track : Palau beach

It’s a place, far far away.
Beyond the limits of our world, or atleast not far from it.

The air is warm, the sand is hot, the sea is beautiul

Dark clouds gather in the sky, above the palm trees, anouncing an intense tropical thunderstorm. The first lightnings strike the air. The first thunder can be heard.

In the real world, this would mean the party is over. But in the dreamworld where no real danger exists, it’s just the moment the real fun begins.

Let there be light, let there be electricity, let there be joy, let there be… just life at its best !

Enjoy Palau beach !

The Palau islands lie between the Philippines archipelago and Micronesia, just above of Indonesia, in the very hot waters of the equatorial Pacific ocean. That place always felt to me like the very end of the world, and thus the place of all the possibilities…thus the name of the track.

Own track : Sunset lounge (short radio edit)

Relax…
It’s summer…
You’re lying in a lounge in front of the pool or the sea.
There are palm trees planted all over the place, and the white sandy beach isn’t far.
The gentle marine breeze blows some delicate fresh air in the tropical heat.
You’ve got your favorite cocktail just on the table next to you.
The one you love is just here, right next to you.
Everything’s fine.
You feel like in paradise. You are in paradise…

You’re in the sunset lounge…

Enjoy it !
