A kiss is not only the act of pressing one’s lips against the lips of another person or of an object. A kiss is a emotional and romantic statement. The new single of The Casino Royal is looking for a kiss. The song is gospel oath of desire, love, passion and seduction. Like kissing James Bond on a reclining seat of a Aston Martin. The Casino Royal conjures with “You´ll give me that kiss” again a wonderfully light songwriting with orchestral Drive, Mediterranean groove, soft acoustic-riffs and rainbow-colored melodies. The single is taken from their current Mole Listening Pearls Album “From Portugal with Love”. This is music that celebrates the origins of lounge music from the 50s and 60s in perfect mood widescreen format. A perfect hot kiss will be expected!

Modern Pop Lounge (compilation)

The guiding principle behind „Moderner Pop Lounge“ is, apart from being a sound statement, an album with songs, not sounds. Well-established bands and artists such as Naomi, Ohm Square, Lemongrass, nor elle, Alphawezen and Yonderboi are presented with songs together with amazing discoveries such as The Burhorn, Johannes Huppertz, The Casino Royal and Tony Match. The album is rounded off by highlights such as Audio Lotion, Geb.el, Moodorama, Zagar or the Swedish producer J. Axel. The songs on this album don’t babble along but move heart and soul: highly distinguishable and clearly recognisable electronic music. A beautiful album and promising prospects for all lovers of good electronic music.

Available format: mp3.

The Casino Royal Promo Video

The Casino Royal was born in Portugal by the hands of the producer Pedro Janela. After some research he discovers the magnificent voice of Marisa Mena and the project became known as The Casino Royal. It was totally produced and recorded at Mastermix Studios in Portugal. It’s strongly influenced by the “easy- listening” sound, getting inspiration from the Dolce Vita, the glamorous casino’s life, where men and women are surrounded by luxury and money and involve themselves in sensual games. Casino Royal appears like the perfect soundtrack to that scenario. Visually the band shows a vintage look, with a colorful, smooth and sensual image.
