307 / Jose Padilla / Cafe Del Mar #1

The Café Del Mar is one of those places that is slowly passing into mythical status. Years before Ibiza got developed and commercialised the Café stood on the beach with the music playing along to nature and the sunset. As we all know Jose Padilla was the DJ and he sold tapes from the DJ booth. We were lucky enough to borrow some to record and are finally getting the time to upload them. If you have never seen the video below filmed one summer in 1992 by Martin The Poet then have a look.

You can see the sign in the DJ booth of cassettes for sale and here is tape number one. Classic sounds from Jose Padilla.

Massive thank to the very kind Chris for lending us his cassettes.
