GUEST SPOT # 21 - Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (Michael Woods Remix)

Come on you music lovers! You know you want to share a favourite track and tell us why you love it! Contact us now to feature on our weekly Guest spot!




Voted number one by Pete Tong's radio show listeners in the Top Twenty dance songs of the last twenty years, Cafe Del Mar must be the soundtrack to so many chilled out memories! On this week's Guest spot, Jamie may seem like a man of little words but still waters run deep!

Each time I hear this song it reminds me of hot days in Cornwall at the Skydiving Centre when I was a Uni student. This was a great carefree time for me when I could just enjoy the fun of Skydiving and sharing a beer with a great group of friends. I loved the permanent chilled out pace of life in Cornwall and the chilled out nature of this song combined with the great dance rhythms just fitted life.








This track has been remixed hundreds of times so here is the official original mix from back in 1993 to make your own comparisons with!

I think I may have heard a version of this song at some point and I never knew it was so popular or remixed so often! It reminds me a bit of William Orbit's 'Adagio For Strings' which is also a nice chilled out number! Would love to go to Cornwall too!

The remix (1st one fo sho) as it's just the melody which is a classic. Chilled Cornwall, nice! Thanks Jamie.

Love this. One of my favourites. Although I was involved in parachuting too, this was one of those tunes that you could chill out to on Sunday morning or when going out Friday night. At the time it was thought to be too hard core trance for general release. How wrong they were!
