Product Description

Product Description

JOSE PADILLA Souvenir (1998 UK 12-track CD album which features the sound of Ibiza that is rarely seen not the club side but the beautiful tranquil warm sunny side which is drenched in the glow of an almost timeless sunset and the side that Jose knows and loves. This is a chill out album with Spanish guitar and flamenco sounds with the occasional foray into more uptempo styles complete with picture sleeve)

Souvenir is the sound of a side of Ibiza you rarely see. An Ibiza that isn't full of drunken yobs and scantily-clad club babes. An Ibiza that is beautiful, tranquil, warm, sunny and drenched in the glow of an almost timeless sunset. This is the Ibiza that Jose Padilla knows and loves, and it is this that he has poured into his debut long player. You can almost feel the sea gently lapping round your feet throughout, as ambient soundwashes and light trip hop beats give way to Spanish guitar and flamenco sounds. Padilla's Spanish roots shine through, and there is a refreshing emphasis on live instrumentation. There is the odd surprise--occasional forays into more uptempo styles such as breakbeat--but all in all Souvenir is a rare treat: a chill out album that doesn't descend into self-indulgent noodling. --Matt Anniss

5.0 out of 5 stars the embodiment of summer 23 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
for fans of the café del mar series our man jose has put together an album that tingles nostalgic nerves and radiates with summer twilight vibes. I discovered this album sitting on a window ledge watching the world go by on a summer's evening and it appears apt for all chill out enthusiasts from the lounge smokers to all back to mine sessions. Mr padilla has put together tunes that del mar addicts will recognise but has managed to transform them with intriguing additions together with up beat tunes, such as "bosa rosa", to create an experience climaxing in the wind down timeless "la mar"- which seems to sum up the experience that has teased the listener with personal historic recollections together with sublime interludes of what could only be expressed as the "chill" factor leaving one feeling like they have been experiencing a "souvenier".

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn the lights down......... 13 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
Turn the lights down, light some candle's or a real fire if you have one, crack open a bottle of red wine and let Jose take you on a little journey of memories....If you like the 'Cafe del Mar' feeling this will ignite your memories. Or if you are stuck in a traffic jam, turn your windscreen wipers and heater on full, and it is sure to make that dark, damp, misarable winter journey home one you will look forward to...This album is Sunshine, even in the darkest hour. It's one you need to have in your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 12 Dec 1999
Format:Audio CD
For all you Cafe Del Mar fans, Jose is the compiler of the volumes, so this album needs no further introduction. Serious music to chill-out to!

3.0 out of 5 stars Uber Ambient/Chill... 5 April 2011
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Be aware that this is the solo work from the brilliant Jose Padilla, rather than a mix CD a la Cafe Del Mar. As such there are not the subtle mood +/or rhythm changes that made the CDM series so fab (when he was doing the CDs). Instead it is akin to Caribou, Ulrich Schnauss, Lemon Jelly, Bonobo even Vangelis et al.

Not a bad thing but just be aware...
