Review: Considered the anti-hero of disco music, Argoman literally means 'lazy man', however it's also a combination of three Italian producer's names who started the project about one year ago. Any guesses who they might be? We will leave that to you! The track "Chimicalissimo" is new wave Italo disco at its finest, featuring peak-time dancefloor energy completely produced with analogue synths and drum machines. Gerd Jason and Fabrizio Mammarella team up again as Black Spuma and their remix turns the track into a slow burning disco monster. The dub version gives more space to a melancholic piano melody that culminates through analogue arpeggios to an unstoppable build.

Review: Germany's Brontosaurus label, home to such luminaries as Arto Mwambe, Exile Missile, Lauer and Extra Produktionen since the mid 2000s, is calling it a day. To celebrate, Permanent Vacation have produced this celebratory three-tracker featuring two unheard cuts and a 12 year-old classic. The inclusion of the latter, Extra Productionen's organic deep house jam "The Mothership", is reason to buy the EP alone. The other two tracks, though, are equally as good. Arto Mwambe's "Nokout" is a sublime slice of alien deep house - all intergalactic shuffle and wide-eyed bleep melodies, while Exile Missile's "Range" combines the futurism of '80s electrofunk and Detroit techno to mesmerising effect.

Review: Permanent Vacation boss Benjaimin Frohlich is back. The man in Munich now presents the remixes of his fab 2016 release Rude Movements and gets an all-star cast to lend their deft hand at a remix. First up is the imitable Lauer; king of all things neon-lit and retro who delivers the goods (as always) with his rendition of "Amos", while fellow Frankfurter Shan stays true to the classic house aesthetic on his deep late night groove: "Holloway" is injected with spooky analogue synth leads, chunky analogue arpeggios and rusty rhythms with the good ol' clap on the kick for good measure. On the flip, it's all about the sludgy and tape saturated "Spitting Image" reinterpreted Jack Pattern (actually a Swiss trio, would you believe) where their slow motion EBM mutation calls to mind the work of Slugbug or L/F/D/M. Wicked!

Review: Munich's Benjamin Frohlich is back on his own beloved Permanent Vacation imprint which he founded back in 2006 with Tom Bioly. On the Rude Movements EP he gives us four servings of wonderfully deep nu disco. On the A side is the soaring and cosmic sci fi odyssey of "Holloway" with its glorious arpeggio. Also "Spitting Image" gets that classic early 80's Chicago proto house sound happening with a pure booming 808 workout that makes a wicked DJ tool. On the flip "Amos" is a sick and gnarly acid house grinder which is perfect to up the ante at 3 AM and get the kids dancing.

Review: Experienced German producers Daniel Bortz and Sascha Sibler go way back; they released their first collaborative 12" on Tiefschwarz's Souvenir imprint in 2011. They seem to enjoy working together, as their recent EP on Innervisions was one of the best things Dixon's label has put out for some time. "Tomorrow We Start A New Life Again" is another belter, with hissing, Latin-influenced percussion providing sturdy backdrop for a series of sparkling synthesizer motifs, melancholic chords and atmospheric electronic touches. It feels simultaneously hopeful and fearful, which is how most people feel when they start a new life. The flipside, "If Not Tomorrow Then Maybe Someday" is, understandably, a little deeper, with a noticeably bittersweet feel about the undulating electronics and fluid arrangement.

Review: Norway's Boska is making all the right moves as he gets snapped up by Permanent Vacation after a successful stint on Studio Barnhus as well as plenty of appearances on Mental Overdrive's Love OD Communications. His sound sits somewhere between garage and house, and the title track on this latest EP exemplifies that notion perfectly as it rolls and skips with an easy flow, charming melodies riding atop the percussive wave and accented by plentiful vocal chops. "Brute" works a little more rhythmic intensity into the mix with some rapid fire elements that attempt to cut through the relatively murky synths and bass. The overriding focus on this EP though is on delicate harmonies and a clean, bright finish laced with plenty of machine soul.

Review: Alex Burkat's track record over the past couple of years is pretty impressive, with well-regarded releases on 100% Silk, Third Ear and Mister Saturday Night. Here he pops up on Munich's Permanent Vacation with some picturesque, widescreen deep house. The title-track sets the tone, delivering a veritable starburst of flowery synthesizer melodies, dreamy pads, shuffling rhythms, twittering flutes and becalmed harps. Barnt impressively turn the track on its head, retaining the trademark melodies while opting for a far more immersive, stripped back and yearning feel. Elsewhere, "Three Rivers" is loose, organic and jazz-flecked (while also boasting spacey electronics), and "Supermoon" is little more than an intergalactic deep house hug.

Review: Newly transplanted to Australia, Greenskeeper don James Curd demonstrates he's lost none of his knack for crafting deliciously danceable electro funk grooves with his latest offering on Permanent Vacation. "Open Up Your Mind" is the first of hopefully many collaborations with vocalist Devin Byrnes, whose spoken word delivery is the perfect foil for a vertical glam house throb from Curd. There's a tongue in cheek menace to the darkly lysergic melodies that you'd expect from Curd, but it's matched by an inherent infectiousness. This is probably his best work since the ubiquitous DFA single a few years ago, and there's even an instro version for those who prefer their house music sans chatter.

Review: When it comes to disco reversions, remixers don't come much bigger than Metro Area's Darshan Jesrani. Here we find him slicing up intriguing new synth pop act Disco Double. The main mix rolls with a delightfully playful analogue bassline that complements every second the falsetto vocals. For something a little deeper head for the spit-roast dub where the drums are stripped back to a more tribal flavour and the synths are dubbed out to perfection. Release your "Demons" within today!

Review: If you multiplied the slices of toast you've consumed your entire life by a hundred it might come close to the vast array of aliases undertaken by ED DMX in a career that spans over fifteen years and releases on imprints as disparate as Rephlex, Turbo and Soul Jazz. A relationship with Permanent Vacation which began with the German label reissuing Ed DMX's "Come To Me" back in 09 is further cemented with these four tracks of original material from the producer. The title track is here in two forms, both of which have a decidedly Cold Wave feel (an aesthetic that is clearly echoed on the cover art) and sees Ed's own distinct tones punctuated by a heavy synth backing sat atop punchy drums. It's a really strong look and you could easily mistake the Dance Mix for something from the early 80s. Complementing this on the B Side are two instrumental disco boogie jams heavy on the analogue arpeggio hits with "Disco Theme" impressing in particular.

Review: One letter away from being in the possibly the greatest doo-wap band of all time, Mark Flynn (aka the Berling-dwelling The Drifter), drops his debut solo release on the esteemed Permanent Vacation. Much like the music played at the club, Passion Beat, that he runs with Mano Le Tough, the Lovers EP features three tracks of sumptuous, moody house music. "Day And Night" features shimmering snowflakes of synth coupled with Flynn's breathy tones. "Another Chance" meanwhile boasts a shuffly beat and a lovely Balearic-style lilt, while the sultry title track is a right old moody pout of a tune.

Review: Huntleys & Palmers and Highlife resident Auntie Flo has long been at the forefront of the Afro-electronic movement (alongside German specialists Africaine 808), delivering intoxicating blends of original African music and modern drum machine rhythms. Here, he makes his first appearance on Permanent Vacation with the feverish "Hey Don't Make Trouble" - a sweaty blend of wonky electronics, shimmering synths, African chanting and dense, floor-filling African percussion. The kuduro-influenced "Woman of Your Boss" takes a slightly different approach, mixing rave-era breakbeats and skittish bursts of percussion with wonkly synth horns and chopped-up African vocal samples. An essential EP is completed by the Esa Afro Acid Remix of the title track, a thrilling trip into ragged 303 territory in the company of some long-lost African tribe. Recommended.

Review: Munich's excellent Permanent Vacations nudge towards a century of releases with a typically warm EP of huggable electronic grooves from the unpredictable Tevo Howard. Epic opener "Pump & Bounce" is the stand out cut. Built around a heady, intoxicating fusion of melancholic chords, tactile synths, stargazing melodies and seemingly cheap electronic sounds, it rises and falls for an impressive nine minutes. "You Have A Way With Words" spits and jumps with fuzzy machine rhythms and low-slung synths, while the hypnotic rhythms and crystalline arpeggios of "What Is Sound" are stunning in their emotion-rich simplicity. "Content (Dawn Mix)", on the other hand, is just beautiful. Bravo, Tevo, bravo!

Review: Permanent Vacation has been responsible for some truly great music over the years, but never seems to get as much credit as the artists whose material they release. For example, many people will have rightfully enjoyed John Talabot's recent album fIN without having any prior knowledge of the Munich based label that it was released on. It's perhaps the greatest compliment you can lay on the lap of Permanent Vacation that they seem content for this to be the status quo, happy for people to focus their affections on the music rather than the label. The imprint's latest will undoubtedly ensure more fanfare is directed at Jacob Korn and PV regulars GoodGuy Mikesh and Filburt as "Phillip Dolphia" is a wondrous slice of European deep house bristling with summer intentions and dominated by that thick string laden touch at its core. "The Ranch" presents the trio in more downtrodden mood, while Bobby Johnson's stalwart Lauer is a nice choice to roughen up the track with a crystalline electro remix dominated by that brutal kick drum.

Review: Originally appearing on Gerd Janson's fabric mix, "Voices" is a life affirming and spiritual club anthem by the Barcelona's hero of oddball deep house: John Talabot. Janson appears also here by providing a rendition of the track himself. It's got just as much bounce as the original but certainly not as serious; this one's is just uplifting, cheeky and retro as you'd expect from the man.

Review: It's some 11 years since New Orleans deep house producer Walter Jones made his debut for Westbound Music. His releases have been sporadic, to say the last, since then, but there have been some superb highlights (check 2004's Fade Inn Moments EP, or his deliciously Balearic 2009 single for DFA, I'll Keep On Loving You). Here he pops up on Munich's ever-consistent Permanent Vacation imprint with four chunks of luscious house. Choose between the enveloping pads and undulating bassline of "Heaven's Gate", the twinkling Balearic breeze of "I Am", the Revenge-ish slo-mo pulse of the flute-laden "Lower Chakra Safari", and the deliciously percussive, disco-tinged deep house pump of "A Night In Newark"; all are pretty darn hot.

Review: Kauf is one of the few out in the LA county making good old house music with a nice tech-step. Munich's Permanent Vacation has clocked onto this, and have decided to feature the young gun-slinger on their catalogue. For the time being, Kauf appears only as the originator if "Through The Yard", a tune that is remixed here twice by the great Fort Romeau: the first version is a classic, big-room house anthem with plenty of late-night vocals that make it perfect for radio playback, while the instrumental version is clearly the winner at 2AM on a sweaty Ibizian dance floor.

Review: It's 12 years since Dresden-born, Leipzig-based Martin Enke first made waves under the Trickform alias, and four years since he launched the Lake People project. Given his production vintage, it's surprising Purposefully Uncertain Field is his debut album. In turns uncomfortable, blissful, woozy and melancholic, it sees Enke confidently join the dots between shuffling Germanic deep house, early '90s "intelligent techno" (see the brilliant "Cooping"), yearning tech-house, aqueous ambience (the swirling "Bora" and glacial "Distance"), clanking drum tracks ("Glease") and loose-limbed IDM ("Drifting Red"). Throughout, there's a curiously distant sense of atmosphere, with detached melodies and ghostly pads riding tight, bubbling rhythms.

Review: Tracks from Lake People's 2015 debut album get the remix treatment here from a stellar line-up. Masked man Redshape drops one of his most impressive remixes to date, with his take on "Illuminated" turning the track into an atmospheric, swaggering groove, led by gloriously deep synths and shot through with a nagging 303 undercurrent. Lawrence's remix of "Drifting Red" follows a similarly melodic approach, but with the Dial artist's trademark stripped back beats and instantly recognisable, introspective touch. Finally, Kann boss Map.ache gets to grips with "Cooping" and uses infectious vocal samples and swoon-some hooks to round off an impressive collection of ethereal remixes.

Review: Under the now familiar Lake People alias, Martin Enke has delivered some fine material over the last five years. Enke's success has been built on combining club-ready elements borrowed from techno and tech-house, with the melodious intent of IDM, and the groovy feel of deep house. He's at it again here, delivering a trio of ear-pleasing cuts. There's more than a little electro shuffle to the blissful, bleep-heavy opener "The 1st Day", whose power is generated by a relentless, pulsating bassline. "Ashland" expertly combines the intergalactic futurism of Detroit techno with the horizontal intent of ambient house, while epic closer "You Take Another Place With You" is a melancholic, heavily electronic treat influenced by vintage progressive house, and featuring an extended ambient outro.
