Double LP pressed on 180-gram vinyl; includes CD. Jose Padilla, a legend in the Ibiza scene, presents his stunningly forward-thinking Balearic album So Many Colours. It would have been easy for Padilla to make a chill-out album, but instead he worked together with four forward-thinking producers to create a modern work, moving across the genres held together by the Balearic umbrella. Padilla is loved by many for his work soundtracking sunsets at the Cafe del Mar and compiling the seminal Cafe del Mar compilations, which sold over six million copies. His fans are wide and varied - on one end of the spectrum there's Madonna or Karl Lagerfeld, and on the other DJ legends such as Harvey and Andrew Weatherall. To create So Many Colours, Padilla worked with International Feel founder Mark Barrott (Sketches from an Island (IFEEL 029 CD/LP)); Telephones, a man making serious waves with his deep house sound; Dusseldorf-based natural beat-maker Wolf Muller aka Jan Schulte; and Australian Tornado Wallace of Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space Records. All four are known for differing styles and sounds, though their work together with Padilla forms a naturally cohesive whole. Barrott brings a deep oceanic mellowness; Tornado the electronic, synthesized, melodic beats and grooves; Wolf Muller the afro sound; and Telephones the beautiful dream-like house. Each producer was flown to Ibiza to work at Padilla's home in Santa Agnes, with their studios set up in the house overlooking one of the island's most beautiful valleys, for a week collaborating with Padilla, immersed within the feeling of the island. Each found his own sound within the walls of Padilla's villa, but ultimately it is all extremely Balearic. Day One, Lollipop, and Blitz Magic, produced by Telephones, pay heed to the newly revived dream-house sound - expect an underground sleeper hit from one of these tracks. Barrott produces Solito, as well as the beautiful closer Remember Me and the acoustic guitar vibes of Mojame. Muller brings Brazilian afro beats to Whistle Dance and Afrikosa, and the album wouldn't be complete without Tornado's Maybe the Sunset (feat. Lydmor) - a ride on Ibiza sunshine - and the widescreen On the Road. Padilla has created an album for dancing wildly, relaxing wholly in nature, and losing yourself. It is a true musical journey covering all angles of the Balearic scene, reminiscent of a classic Cafe del Mar compilation.
