Here’s a nice mix for the end of Summer, Phil Mison of Cantoma fame (check the album on Claremont 56) live from the Cafe Del Mar at sunset from ’94. Ben Turner, ex-editor of Muzik Magazine, recently wrote a piece on the summer of 1994 and listening to Phil at the Cafe Del Mar. Click here to read. Here’s an excerpt…
And here’s the mix…

Quick bit of history… The Café del Mar first opened on 20th June 1980 in Ibiza in the town of San Antonio de Portmany. It was designed by the well-known Catalán architect, Lluis Güell, who was in charge of the design, decoration and architecture of the building. People came from far and wide to visit the café and to contemplate the sunset, which in the words of the owners is, ‘undoubtedly one of the most incredible and marvelous sunsets on the planet’.
As we know the sunsets and their soundtrack are what the café is famous for, and Phil Mison was lucky enough to play there in 1993. At the bottom of this post is a recording of the set taken from a tape recorded at the time.
Since then Phil has been DJing worldwide and in recent years hosting daytime balearic sessions in the East London area with Steve Terry (look out for a mix from Steve soon). This weekend sees the fourth birthday of the Afternoon Sessions, and to celebrate Phil and Steve have invited Shoom legend Danny Rampling to come and play some of his favourite records. Get down there if you are in the area and enjoy the mix.
