What does cool background music mean to us? It means contemporary tracks with atmosphere; it means smooth solos and up-to-the-minute rhythms; it means music that everybody can agree on. Here at Audio Network, we like to split our sure-fire cool music background tracks into four clear categories: 'Stylish', 'Party' and 'Minimal'.

Party background music tracks are a must for travel vlogs, fashion shows and sports events (especially running and cycling). They’re also great for any films/shows set in the city, or even by the beach. Essentially, our party background music is diverse enough to be included in any type of content, as long as the vibe is upbeat.
