Leo Mas is one of our favourite DJs, his distinctive groove has soundtracked quite a few hedonistic nights for the Tent crew. He may be best known for playing alongside Alfredo at Amnesia in the 80s or his own club, Movida, in Italy in the 90s, or his remixes with production partner Fabrice, but one thing is sure, his taste and sensibility are still totally rooted in the sounds of today, as you will hear in this special mix he has made for us.
We’re back this Sunday, the 25th April with Edition #13 of the Chill Out Tent, our monthly streaming event and it’s become a tradition to close out the event with an after party. This month we’re honoured to welcome DJ Supermarkt to the Chill Out Tent decks. He’s most well known for curating the popular Too Slow to Disco compilation series on his own label ‘How Do You Are Records’.
He’s promised us an exclusive ‘Tropical Beach Bar in Space‘ mix, which sounds just about perfect. Join us on Mixcloud Live at 17:45 BST on Sunday to hear this special session.
Edit 28/4/21 – here’s the audio of the full ‘My Favourite Beach Bar on the Moon’ set as broadcast on the Chill Out Tent Edition #13 Sunday 25/4/21
This is the digitised version of side 1 of a mixtape made on cassette by Jose Padilla and sold at the Cafe Del Mar in the early 1990’s. It was played with a video from that era in Edition 12 of The Chill Out Tent in March 2021. It’s a seminal collection, Jose’s Balearic blue print of ambient, electronics, classical, new-age, film scores and rock all going into the mix…
This is the Audio of Gerry Rooney‘s excellent DJ set first streamed in the February edition of The Chill Out Tent. The set was filmed at our London home from Home – The Dartmouth Arms / Disappearing Dining Club. This set caused quite a stir with it’s un-Shazamable tracklist of secret weapons getting the Discogs crew very excited…
Gerry is half of Velvet Seasons and the Heart Of Gold who make excellent music and edits, mostly vinyl only, mostly hard to track down. He was also half of the legendary Black Cock edit label with DJ Harvey. Here he plays a great eclectic set of downtempo tunes for dancing.
Here is the fantastic mix from Bill Brewster for the after party section of The Chill Out Tent, edition 11, broadcast at the end of February 2021. Bill is known for is work with DJ History, his weekly podcast, numerous book, etc etc and for being a seemingly effortlessly great DJ. Set recorded at the Dartmouth Arms / Disappearing Dining Club.

As part of our ‘12 days of chillout‘ event over the holiday season we were really happy to be able to screen the amazing visuals and music from our friends at Baliaric FM. Originally broadcast as part of our ‘Solstice Around the World’ event in June 2020 it really showcased the unique landscape and music of Bali, here’s the stunning audio from that session for you to enjoy…
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.

T Modet made a wonderful film for The Chill Out Tent Edition 7. Here’s what she said about the film and the music:
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.
