We’re really pleased to welcome The Sunrise Sessions – a new video mix series from Oslo based Plastic Fantastic as part of our schedule for the Chill Out Tent Edition #14


Volume One, kicks off the new series with a mix from Plastic Fantastic. Here’s what they’ve got to say about the session;

This mix is very much a hats-off to José Padilla as they’ve included several records that he played at the Café Del Mar in Ibiza back in the good ol’ days. By the way, if you haven’t already watched In Memory Of José Padilla – The Godfather Of Chill on Youtube, I highly recommend seeing that first as this mix is kind of a follow-up to that.

José Padilla was and still is a huge influence on me as a DJ, particularly his late eighties to mid nineties period as resident DJ at the iconic Café Del Mar where he would provide an eclectic, emotive, chilled and yet simultaneously powerful soundtrack to the sunset. Anyone who was lucky enough to be there back in the day will eagerly testify that they experienced something special. José Padilla sadly passed away last year. His musical legacy and pioneering spirit will not be forgotten.


You may recognise some familiar records in this mix, such as Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’ (theme from The Exorcist) and ‘Moments In Love’ by Art of Noise alongside plenty of perhaps lesser known gems. Just to mention a few, Propaganda’s opus ‘La Carne, La Morte E Il Diavolo’, and the rather blissful ‘Island Sunrise’ by Software. The Balearic connoisseurs amongst listeners will enjoy Elkin & Nelson’s sublime latin jam-out ‘Vamonos’, and yes of course I play the record in its entirety (nine glorious minutes!). This record by the way is an absolute Ibiza classic; Alfredo would frequently drop it at Amnesia back in the 80s, truly powerful stuff. Jazz guitar virtuoso Pat Metheny’s ‘Sueno Con Mexico’ closes the mix on a dreamy note, quite literally… Fun fact, Metheny recorded the LP that particular track was taken from right here in Oslo.’
