Spanish artist José Padilla was seduced by the idea of becoming a DJ while working as a waiter in Barcelona. After moving to Ibiza in 1975, Padilla soon got involved in the local night club circuit.
In 1991, he took up a DJ residency at Café del Mar. In 1994, he compiled the first Cafe del Mar album for the React label.
In November 2007, a new compilation series called Bella Musica, unrelated to Cafe del Mar, was released. It was followed by "Here Comes the Sunset" (Volume 4) in 2011.
