Good evening. From wikipedia: “The Hôtel Costes is a famous hotel in Paris, France. Hôtel Costes also releases its own compilation lounge music CDs, which contain music played and mixed within by DJ Stéphane Pompougnac.” This is part 12 in the series and it was recently added to Spotify. The earlier versions are not available yet (in Sweden at least). Enjoy!
