John aka Plastic Fantastic says this about the new Sunrise Sessions mix series:
Volume One, kicking off the series with a mix from yours truly (Plastic Fantastic).
This mix is very much a hats-off to José Padilla as I’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.
