One of the stars of our October Edition #7 of the Chill Out Tent was Paper Recording’s producer, DJ and renaissance man Flash Atkins a.k.a Stubb. He’s been kind enough to curate a gorgeous playlist for us, it’s a spiritual, cosmic, psychedelic journey into freak folk, enjoy! You can find our ever growing archive of guest playlists here, there’s more than 24 hours of sublime listen pleasure at you fingertips…
T Modet’s music references always take us back to the origins. That’s why we went with a shooting team deep into nature, into a cave, a few kilometers away from Barcelona. As T Modet was playing her set, the birds were singing and the forest was shining. Then we went into the editing room and we mixed the set in the cave with T Modet’s favourite movie: “In The Land Of The Headhunters”. The movie is from 1914 and it depicts the adventure of a native american heroe. As we were in the cave listening to the music and picturing the images of the movie in our heads, it really felt like going back to some lost roots that felt more familiar than one could expect.
About the music: This eclectic selection is made from balearic beat and electronic music. It’s an invitation to transport yourself into that cave and dance with your ancestors.
This Episode… The Chill Out Tent’s Chris Coco is digging deep into the archives, looking to the future, but mostly staring out to sea as the sun sets on the horizon, remembering some magic created by the original sunset maestro – Jose Padilla.
We’ve curated a playlist of beautiful music to help remember and celebrate the life of Jose Padilla. These are tracks that appeared in his legendary mixtapes, charts that he shared and some of his own timeless productions. They all provide an insight into Jose’s balearic blueprint of ambient, electronics, classical, new-age, film scores, jazz and rock all going into the mix. If we’ve missed some essential tracks let us know…
Jose Padilla was a friend, mentor and inspiration to many people in the Chill Out Tent community. His passing is a huge loss to all who knew him and his work. We pass on our thoughts and condolences to all his friends and family at this sad time.
We are working on an appropriate way to mark Jose’s passing in the coming weeks, until that’s possible we’ve compiled an archive of material to remember him by, articles, interviews, films, mixtapes and performances all celebrating a life in music. If we’ve missed anything, let us know and we can update this page accordingly. Adios Jose…

Our curator in chief and super chilled DJ Chris Coco played an ambient, pre sunset set, up the hill, under a tree for the La Casella stream on The Chill Out Tent. He was sporting a fine, cosmic shirt and trouser combo too, it has to be said. Here is that very spacey mix.
Our Chill Out Tent classic this week is the sublime ‘Sunset Village’ from Beverly Glenn Copeland, originaly released on cassette in 1986. It remained relatively unknown until a few year ago where it began to circulate among collectors. This rediscovery has lead to a second blossoming of his career, a documentary biopic, the re- release of his full discography and recognition of the significance of his new age, folk, electronica compositions. Enjoy the music and films below, don’t miss his RBMA interview and who knows maybe we can get to see him perform live one day soon?
