Étant DJ depuis plusieurs années, j’ai été marqué par la naissance de plusieurs nouveaux genres musicaux, surtout le Chicago House. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>La musique house faisait régulièrement partie de mes sets de DJ, mais au début des années 90 j’ai découvert l’étiquette de disque Acid Jazz. Quelle révélation! Ce style mariait mes styles préférés. Ce genre musical compte l’un de mes artistes préférés, Jamiroquai. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Ensuite, j’ai été renversé par deux autres artistes : D’Angelo et Maxwell. Vers le début des années 2000, il y a eu un retour du son plus plus Motown et R&amp;B comme Leon Bridges, Andra Day, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings et bien sûr Amy Winehouse.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Cette chaîne présente donc un joyeux mélange d’Acid Jazz, de funk, de neo soul et de R&amp;B.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><strong><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Quel est le meilleur moment pour syntoniser cette chaîne ?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Je dirais que la station s’écoute bien toute la journée.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><strong><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Quelle est l’ambiance générale offerte par la chaîne ?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Avec la présence de vraies instruments (cuivres, cordes, percussions), on y retrouve en générale une musique vivante sans toutefois être trop intense.

Je me permets de tricher un peu en donnant un titre selon les styles retrouvés dans la chaîne. Pour l’acid jazz, celle qui a parti le bal est « Blow Your Mind » de Jamiroquai. Pour le neo soul, c’est « Welcome » de Maxwell et pour le style Motown plus contemporain, je choisi « Smooth Sailin » de Leon Bridges. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span>Pensez-vous que notre chaîne Modern Soul conviendrait à votre espace commercial?

While the initial investment can be quite high, digital signage has proven to deliver an ROI in less than 18 months (Tim Rollins, Noventri).</p> <p>Let’s look at how you can apply digital signage both inside and outside your restaurant.</p> <h3>Inside Signage</h3> <p>There are several ways you can use digital signage to enhance the customer experience once they are inside your establishment. Naturally, customers do not like to wait long. To minimize perceived wait times, a video wall or other forms of digital signage can keep clients entertained while also allowing you to promote relevant content.</p> <p>Many restaurants are moving towards digital menu boards, a solution that is very flexible and offers a wide range of features. Digital menu boards can be used to display relevant information such as nutritional facts, promotions, new items, and more - the possibilities are endless. Furthermore, this solution allows you to make updates in real-time across multiple locations.</p> <p>Many companies have also begun to implement self-serving kiosks that let clients select their meal and pay without having to wait for a cashier. The implementation of self-serving kiosks can lead to an increase in sales of up to 30% (Danny Klein, QSR).</p> <p>Aside from boosting sales, digital signage is a convenient alternative to traditional signage. It allows you to make changes instantly to reflect your product offering and current in-store promotions across multiple locations ensuring that your content is in synch and up to date.</p> <h3>Outside Signage</h3> <p>Digital signage outside your restaurant can be used for many functions such as promoting new menu items or upselling higher ticket items to tempt customers into making additional purchases. In fact, research shows that digital signage outside restaurants can increase sales up to 8% (<a href="https://www.armagard.com/">Daniel Waldron</a>, Digital Signage Today).</p> <p>The use of digital signage outside of restaurants can entice customers to come inside your establishment to make purchases by promoting limited-time offers and other special promotions. Furthermore, digital signage doesn't even need to be placed directly outside your restaurant to catch the interest of a passerby. The windows of your restaurant are a great place to engage a potential client. Bright and eye-catching visuals of a limited-time offer on an LED screen placed in your restaurants windows are also a great way to target customers. </p> <p>There are limitless ways to apply a digital signage solution inside and outside your business. What are you waiting for?

At Stingray Business, we pride ourselves on offering a range of industry-leading music solutions which cater to an extremely wide variety of businesses and clients. Whether you’re an up-and-coming fashion boutique or a well-established upscale restaurant, our team of passionate and talented music designers will help you find the right music to suit your brand. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>In this first edition, we sat down with music designer Sacha to chat about his favorite Stingray Business channel.</span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-sacha_0.jpg" height="500" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-08-experts-choice/stingray-blog-sacha_0.jpg" width="300" /></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>What is your favourite Stingray Business channel?</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>There are many Stingray Business channels that I really enjoy, but my favorite would have to be<strong> "Lounge House".</strong></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>Why is it your favourite?</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>I am very partial to this style of music because it’s mostly what I play when I DJ, but I think loungy house music is upbeat and energizing without being overpowering. It blends jazzy and eclectic melodies with silky smooth vocals and energizing electronic beats that people of all ages can relate to.  </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>What time of day is this channel the best for?</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span> Though this channel would be suitable to play all-day in a retail setting, I think it really shines during cocktail events in the early evening (5 a 7). The dynamic tempo helps keep energy levels high, but the laid-back melodies allow for casual conversation and interactions. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>What mood does this channel set?</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Lounge House sets a sophisticated, modern and refined mood inspired by Europe’s hottest hotel patios and beach bars. Perfect background music for a lively summer cocktail reception or a festive dinner with friends at a restaurant. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>What is your favourite song on the channel?</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>My favourite song on the channel also happens to be one of my favourite tracks ever: El Camino Part I by Shazz. It mixes a housey electronic beat with latin-inspired percussions and piano chords and is a surefire hit both for cocktail hour and on the dancefloor. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span>Listen to a sample of <strong>Lounge House </strong></span></span></span><a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/music-samples/lounge-house?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_content=expert's-choice-08-2018">here</a><span><span><span>! </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span><span><span>Think our Lounge House channel would suit your business perfectly?
