The year 2019 marks an important milestone for Café del Mar Music. It has been 25 years since the first Café del Mar Volume, simply titled ‘Café del Mar Ibiza’, was released in the summer of ’94. While the expectations were modest, it followed a popular demand cultivated by bootlegged cassette tapes sold at the DJ booth by then resident, no other than the man himself, José Padilla. Saying it was a success would be an understatement. Not only would this album turn into series selling in millions (ultimately becoming one of the most popular compilation series of all time), it turned Café del Mar into a global phenomenon and a genre of its own.
