    Balearic is a feeling – and Jose Padilla embodies it. The hugely influential DJ soundtracked the 1990s with his sunset sets at the Café Del Mar, selling six million albums containing his selection of widescreen electronica, dubbed out ambient and the likes of Penguin Café Orchestra and inspiring everyone from Madonna (who selected his Café Del Mar compilations as the ideal desert island listening) to Bestival’s Rob Da Bank to underground DJ heroes like Harvey and Andrew Weatherall.

    ‘Solito’ marks three special moments; 40 years of Padilla as a DJ, his return to Cafe Del Mar after 15 years and the first sign of a new partnership with label International Feel who will release his artist album in 2015. Where could be a better home than on the Balearic mecca, International Feel, the label that also managed to persuade DJ Harvey out of retirement. “International Feel fly the flag for balearic music in the right way. They’re Balearic from the beginning and it reflects on the label. They have substance.” Jose Padilla

    ‘Solito’ is a soft and inviting wash of North African mysticism, warm and dusty beats and a
    heathaze bassline that Frankie Knuckles would have been proud of. It was recorded on the first sunny day after winter in Padilla’s living room with Mark Barrott from International Feel as producer. “It was very cosy and the music came very quick. It was incredible how fast we connected, like we’ve been working together for years.”
