The Cafe Del Mar compilations are the world’s longest running and best know chill out c.d’s and have sold millions of copies worldwide over the years. It all started back in 1978 when a Catalan artist by the name of Luis Guell was chosen to create the interior for the cafe, it took nearly 2 years to realise his vision and the bar decoration remains the same to this day. The C.D series was originally compiled by Jose Padilla in 1994 and for me created some the best compilations of all time and now all these years later it’s good to see them re-capture the real spirit of the music again with new compiler Toni Simonen. This year there are fantastic tracks from people like: Afterlife, No Logo, Underworld, Hybrid, D Note, Bent, Chicane, Chris Coco, Unkle, Moby, Lamb, Faithless and many more all providing exclusive tracks and after just gone through the whole c.d it makes great listening with beautifully cinematic pieces from: Hybrid, Unkle and Underworld and more Balearic vibes from: Afterlife, No Logo, Bent, Chris Coco and others. This is an essential for any Cafe Del Mar or chill out fan!
