Of all the legendary clubs and bars in Ibiza, Cafe Mambo is the most iconic. For over twenty years its sat on the shore of the island, looking out over the sea, welcoming clubbers and DJs from across the world. Any house icon worth their salt has held down a residency at Mambo at some point, and to this day it remains the number one pre-party venue in Ibiza. However what it’s most famous for is its view of the Ibiza sunset. Every night during the summer season party-goers gather on the terrace to watch the sun dip below the horizon. It’s become a staple of any Ibiza trip, and like any Ibiza staple, it deserves the proper soundtrack. With that in mind, we got Mambo resident DJ Danny O to take over the playlist this week with his ultimate sunset selections.

Brian Eno – ‘An Ending’

“Used to powerful effect at the end of the film ‘Traffic’.”

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein – ‘Stranger Things’ 

“From the series of the same name. Moody 80’s atmospheres that work well in the moments before sunset.”

Carlos Santana – ‘Bella’

“Beautiful latin guitar music.”

London Grammar – ‘Oh Woman, Oh Man’

“This voice combined with an Ibizan sunset. Say no more.”

Sasha – ‘Magnetic North’

“Electronica from one of his classic albums.”

Jim Morrison & The Doors – ‘Bird Of Prey’

“Vocal track from An American Prayer.”

Chicane – ‘Offshore’ 

“An Ibiza classic.”

Pink Floyd – ‘High Hopes’

“A Mambo favourite.”

Groove Armada – ‘Serve Chilled’ 

“Legends of the sunset soundtrack.”

Kidnap Kid – ‘Freedom’

“Sets the tone just after sunset.”
