Spanish Jose Padilla was seduced by the idea of becoming a DJ while working as a waiter in Barcelona, moving to Ibiza, known as the White Island, in 1975, Padilla soon got involved in the local night club circuit. In 1991 Cafe del Mar gave him the opportunity he was waiting for, producing an acclaimed collection of club/dance records during the 1990s. After issuing his solo debut album called Souvenir, Jose Padila recorded Navigator, an experimental album featuring songs by Seal and N'Dea Davenport, released by DRO East West in 2001. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
