Vol 9 of the Cafe Del Mar series is significant in two ways. The change in label and the slight change in musical style, but both these changes are linked.
A previous reviewer has noted the lack of esoteric or surprise inclusions such as Dusty Springfield or the remixes of Bush and John Martyn, which appeared on previous releases. But it's not only that: you will not find any tracks by more 'mainstream' or well-known artists and producers. On Vol 8 for example, Dido, Goldfrapp and Afterlife were featured - no such people this time round.
I feel that this is down to the fact that it's now released by Cafe Del Mar themselves rather than on Manifesto/Mercury as in previous years. Therefore, it could well be that they do not have the same ability and finances to obtain the licences to feature such artists and so only can use lesser-known producers because of this. This is of course only a theory, but might go some way to explaining the lack of bigger recording artists.
However, that is not to say that this is a weak album. Because it's now on Cafe Del Mar's own label it's probably more pure without a big record company wanting to see big name artists to help sell the album.
It's probably the most new age of all the compilations. The roots of the Café Del Mar series has always been fairly diverse, which is one of it's main virtues, but volume 9's is far narrower and its main influences appear to be in ambient, electronic and soundtrack music from the likes of Air, Enigma, Vangelis, Orbit and others - with a little bit of Spanish sprinkled into the mix. That's not to say there isn't any more upbeat stuff - there is - but somehow it's all very mellow and relaxing - with little or no connection with the 'in-ya-face' Ibiza club scene and dance music. It's almost a kind of new-age jazz album if there is such a thing!
It'll be interesting to hear what Vol.10 will be like ....

.... the best Cafe Del Mar compilation. And that is quite a statement from yet another big cafe del mar fan who loves every single album. The change of record label has meant almost no (money for) promotion - and that' really a pitty!
A more complete album than the previous albums with primarily an ambient/new age feel (except the beautiful latin/bossa song Quente/Trio Mafua).
Personal favourite is 'The Cure'(Sunshine Mix)/Miro (who also appeared on Vol. 3). I do not think I will ever not love listening to this track.

One reviewer argued that the change of label might be the reason why one will find no 'big artists' on this album. That might be partly right. Though, I will argue that some of the 'big names' were not that big when they first appeared on the previous albums (Afterlife, Mandalay, Nightmares on Wax etc.). To me, the true virtue of the cafe del mar compilations is that they introduce new names and new excellent tunes that I would probably not have heard otherwise. And by this also promoting new great electronic bands. The albums have in an impressive way managed to strike a difficult balance between reaching a still broader audience without compromising on the idea and quality.
Cafe Del Mar vol. 9 is indeed a must for Cafe Del Mar Lovers, other chill out fans and......anyone!

One thing that confused me when I got this CD is that its not compiled by Jose Padilia and is not on the Manifesto label of all the other Cafe Del Mar compilations, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect being a collector of the series. Nevertheless I was more than pleasently surprised! you'll look at the line up and think who are these people?? but these people have made some of the nicest chillout music i've heard in ages! blissfull ambience, trippy beats and mellow guitar and piano hooks, all there to enjoy whilst relaxing in the sunshine. There's no bad tracks here. Don't go to Ibiza, stay at home and buy this CD instead.

Being the proud owner of all of the cafe del mar volumes and never having been to Ibiza.... but then you don't need to when you can have this playing in your living room...so put your feet up and be prepared to travel there......this album tops it for me...chilled!..some fantastic tracks that you want play over and over again.....until of course when they release the next album.

This is a cool cool cool compilation. I absolutely love it. I've only had it a week but it has jumped to the top of my mellow-list.
It is quite different to the other two Cafe del Mar compos I've had before. The instrumentation seems more acoustic and vocal rather than electronic. (Possibly the word "acoustic" is wrong. What I mean is there are instruments apart from synthesizers that play an important part in a lot of the songs.) The whole thing stays mellow all the way through, and has a great unity of style. The songs flow into each other wonderfully.
Although it feels less "electronic" it still has the edge of electronic coolness, modernity and beats which makes ambient so enjoyable. It reminds me more of a smoother and cooler "Chilled Ibizia II" than a "Cafe del Mar" compilation. But don't let that put your off. If you didn't like "Chilled Ibizia II" then "Cafe del Mar 9" is sufficiently different to it to be worth checking out, since it is better mixed and chosen, and is more "acoustic" that Chilled Ibizia II.
I'm totally sold on this album. Well done Cafe del mar!
