Jose Padilla is a legend. Stone cold fact. Without Jose the whole side of mellow music that we've all massively enjoyed over the years probably wouldn't exist. His tapes are legendary and I can only imagine what sitting watching a sunset in the late 80s at the Cafe Del Mar would have been like. I am sure many of us own and have enjoyed his compilations as he's a man with exquisite taste.

Jose is unwell with colon cancer sadly. As with many people he also doesn't have gigs and it would be amazing if people could head to his Go Fund Me page and give a little to support someone who is one of the foundations of the scene. We send Jose all our love and wishes for a swift recovery.
