“Celebrating the life and music of José Padilla, who died aged 64 on October 18th, with his classic 1995 Essential Mix.
Jose was the resident DJ and creative visionary behind Café del Mar in Ibiza, the original spot on sunset strip that championed the sound of the Balearic sunset. And his hugely successful Café del Mar compilation albums paved the way for the chill out genre.
Jose moved to Ibiza in 1976, aged just 21. He never left.”
