ABSTRACT AFRO LOUNGE III: A Nite Grooves Compilation continues with its third incarnation, giving direction to the resurgent interest in Afro-beat music and culture; A project whose time has truly come. In 1998, ABSTRACT AFRO LOUNGE I was nominated for Best Album of the Year in UK's MUZIK Magazine, and riding fast on its heels, ABSTRACT AFRO LOUNGE II was nominated for best album in Japan's REMIX Magazine in 1999.
Like its predecessors, ABSTRACT AFRO LOUNGE III is a vibrant collection of songs; a serious dance ritual reflecting the resurgence of interest and/or preoccupation with Afro-centric music and culture, which is deeply rooted in the very origins of house and garage music. The prevalence of African inspired sounds can be heard throughout various other musical forms including jazz, neo soul, funk, Afrobeat, house, downtempo, nu jazz and left-field. This music echoes the great ancestral homeland - the birthplace of humanity, the tumultuous continent of evolution, tribal warriors, great migrations, political upheaval and spiritual revelry and humility. In Africa, music is instinctual and primal - an expression of the soul. It is also a language, a tradition and a passionate exultation drenched in the multi-hued colors, textures and experiences of the land and its people.

These influences are so prevalent and pervasive in contemporary dance music that it has spread globally, in various mutations, resounding throughout cafes, clubs and homes respectively. ABSTRACT AFRO LOUNGE III features a selection of new songs from an array of artists including Ananda Project, Anthony Nicholson, Kerri Chandler, Blaze, DJ Spinna, Romatt Project and Matthias 'Matty' Heilbronn. With hot steppin' rhythms to the ambient melodies resounding with kinetic energy, it won't be hard to make the connection between the dance rituals of today's club scene and the ceremonial practices of yesteryear.
