"The Sueno De Ibiza soundtrack is an album that I do not want to give a microscopic analysis of. It is something that I would listen to on a Sunday afternoon, driving on a long highway alone. It's trademark of Jose Padilla, a great chillout album that doesn't work like a sleeping pill (unlike most downbeat compilations). The blend of the acoustics (guitar and drums), bossa/jazz breaks, and innocence-lost vocals in some of his tracks is what makes Padilla's tracks a delicious experience. Padilla is an excellent DJ, mixer, and music programmer. He is legendary when it comes to compilations; the man behind a fleet of Cafe Del Mar compilations. This is a must have if you're already obsessed about Cafe Del Mar."
