The Chill Out Tent – Jose Padilla Cafe Del Mar Cassette Mixtape #8

Here is the digitised and remastered audio of the cassette sold to one of The Chill Out Tent crew by Jose Padilla at Cafe Del Mar in the early 90s. CintiFest created a film to accompany this audio, first shown in Edition #8 on 29 November 2020 as part of our tribute to Jose, the original sunset maestro.

Cinti says ‘It is such a huge honor to create visuals for a homage to Jose Padilla. He is definitely a Founding Father of our culture. Rest in Power. Jose in the Sky with Ra.”

The original tape was bought by one of our team, who nagged Jose for track id’s until the great man reluctantly handed over his precious notebook of track listings long enough for the classic titles to be scribbled down. The mix is one that we’ve not seen previously online, we hope it provides a fitting tribute to our maestro of the sunset. It’s a seminal Jose collection, the Balearic blue print of ambient, electronics, classical, new-age, film scores and rock in the mix.

Edition #8 – Nordsø & Theill

We welcome Copenhagen’s Nordsø & Theill for their Chill Out Tent debut this Sunday as part of our Edition #8 Event. We’ll be sharing a recent performance from an amazing cultural centre in the city called Refen, a must for visitors when travel restrictions are relaxed.

NORDSØ & THEILL are an acoustic experience with electronica and beats.
Since the late 1970’s they have both been influential key players in Copenhagen’s jazz scene as well as in international circuits, recording and performing with such greats as Santana, L. Subramaniam, Jan Akkerman and George Duke to name but a few. Check their stunning music via their Bandcamp below and join us on Sunday for their live set.

Edition #8 – A Tribute to Jose Padilla

This Sunday in Edition #8 of the Chill Out Tent for one part of our tribute to the original sunset maestro Jose Padilla we have a digitised and remastered original early 90’s cassette that Jose sold at Cafe Del Mar with added new visuals by film maker and Ibiza resident Cintifest. Cinti has produced a beautiful film, full of the landscape and atmosphere of Ibiza blending seamlessly with Jose’s mix.

Cinti is a video maker/videographer from Buenos Aires, who has been working for 15 years for broadcast tv companies (Much Music, Turner and MTV Latin America) and also made videos for William Djoko and The Wildest Dreams (one of DJ Harvey’s bands). Ibiza based since 2015, obsessed with pop culture and dance floors. 

Cinti says ‘It is such a huge honor to create visuals for a homage to Jose Padilla. I’ve only spoken to him once, and maybe was the only time I got shy to talk to someone. It could sound weird now, but at that time I felt I was talking to a hero. Much bigger than any other DJ. He is definitely a Founding Father of our culture. Rest in Power. Jose in the Sky with Ra.”

The original tape was bought by one of our team, who nagged Jose for track id’s until the great man reluctantly handed over his precious notebook of tracklistings long enough for the classic titles to be scribbled down. The mix is one that we’ve not seen previously online, we hope it provides a fitting tribute to our maestro of the sunset. It’s a seminal Jose collection, the Balearic blue print of ambient, electronics, classical, new-age, film scores and rock all going into the mix, can’t wait…

Edition #8 – Reuben Vaun Smith

Reuben Vaun Smith’s August release ‘Warm Nights’ has been gathering all kinds of (well deserved) praise since it’s release in August. It’s summery, timeless, freeform stuff and we love it here at the Chill Out Tent, so we’re honoured to be able to share a couple of new tracks from Reuben in our November event this Sunday.

Look out for a couple of awesome live tracks with a full band line up, we’ll hear ‘Eternal Return’ and ‘Disco Schiaparelli’ featuring Reuben and bandmates Connor Attack – Drums, Eddie Clayton – Synth Bass, Sakura Murakami- Guitar and Jelly Waves – Guitar. The band have rehearsed and recorded but never played live, here’s hoping we all get to see them play someday soon. A sunny Summer festival would be a perfect space to experience ‘Warm Nights’. Check the album via Bandcamp below…
