The album is a 43-track album of chillout classics that have been soundtracking the famous sunset on the terraces of one of the world’s most popular sunset destination venues.
It’s been compiled by Cafe Mambo resident DJ Pete Gooding and feature s a selection of moments that may continue to inspire sunset worshippers the world over.
Café Mambo has been hailed as a place to party on the sunset strip in Sant Antoni, Ibiza, since 1994 and hosted its first BBC Radio 1 Weekend the following year. With top DJ line-ups, mixed with
food, cocktails and the world famous sunset, it is apparently estimated the outdoor area has hosted as many as 23 million people during its tenure.
Some of the star names who have graced the decks at the venue include Pete Tong, Carl Cox, Swedish House Mafia, Solomun, Bob Sinclar, MK, David Guetta, Duke Dumont, Martin Garrix, Hannah Wants,
Guy Gerber, Tiesto, Hardwell, Fatboy Slim and Steve Aoki.
Pete Gooding, Café Mambo resident DJ says: “I’m really excited about this year’s Café Mambo compilation as it maintains the same flow as the 20th anniversary release, which generated a great reaction. Each mix features a sunset running order, so if you’re familiar with the sunset at Café Mambo you’ll recognise the progression. It starts mid-tempo, then goes more down-tempo, then into beatless tracks, classical music and soundtracks until the moment the sun disappears when the vibe and tempo is lifted up into night-time, which makes these last two compilations the most honest reflection of how I play the sunset at Café Mambo. There are classic tracks from people like David Bowie & Pat Metheny, Mike Oldfield, Barry White, Carl Craig, The Temptations, Timmy Thomas, Womack & Womack, Velvet Underground, Vangelis and many others and new cutting edge music from Jose Padilla, Lydmor, Andras Fox, Balearic Gabba Sound System and Young Marco, as well as one of my own tracks. Please listen, relax and enjoy the sunset.”
