Review: Once a bi-annual feature, in recent times Permanent Vacation's bumper Selected Label Works retrospectives have become a yearly affair. Their latest - the Munich-based imprint's eighth in total - is another packed, highlight-filled treat that features all manner of atmospheric, ear-pleasing and melodies treats. Our picks of a very strong bunch include the acid-flecked deep house dreaminess of 'Holding You' by Daniel Bortz, the clattering, synth-heavy retro-futurism of Paula Tape's 'Cuz Cuz', the post Italo-disco cheeriness of Lauer's 'Know You', the freestyle-influenced shuffle of 'Genex' by Sascha Funke, the dark and feverish tribal house chug of Yor Kultura's 'Today' and the giddy piano house rush of Rhode & Brown's 'Not My Mind, Not My Planet'.

Review: Permanent Vacation co-founder Benjamin Frohlich released the 'Club Fantasy' EP back in March, and now here comes the remix package, with the title track and 'Escape' getting two re-rubs apiece. Peter Invasion & Gegor Habicht bring us an Italo-esque take on 'Escape', while Perel's more smoothed-out version could work on disco and progressive/melodic floors alike with its 80s-ish throbbing bassline, synth strings and sweeping pads. Alex Kassian's Inferno Dub of 'Club Fantasy' itself then fuses Balearic, disco and acid influences, before DJ City takes us on a trip straight back to 1988 with a remix for the house floors. Acieed!

The Joy Of Remixes
   
One More Time (Hammer remix) - (5:51) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Acid Routine (Mr. Ho Acid Blaze) - (6:01) 123 BPM
Review: As the title suggests, this fine four-tracker offers-up fresh revisions of tracks from Benjamin Frohlich's recent EP The Joy of Repetition - a set of hard-to-pigeonhole, hardware-driven jams that continued the Munich producer's fine run of form. Northern Irishman Hammer provides the star turn via a rising, starry and lusciously intergalactic revision of 'One More Time' that's as emotive and life-affirming as you'd expect. There's a sleazier and more energetic feel elsewhere across the EP, where Eden Burns stab-happy, warehouse-ready version of 'Repeat After Me' being accompanied by two takes on 'Acid Routine'. The first, from Paula Tape, is a Chicago style jack-track with a twist, while Mr Ho's revision offers a near perfect fusion of surging space disco and TB-303 insanity.

Acid Routine - (5:43) 123 BPM
Review: Permanent Vacation co-founder Benjamin Frohlich is enjoying a productive year so far, with The Joy of Repetition following hot on the heels of rock-solid outings on Live at Robert Johnson and Optimo Music's Digital Danceforce offshoot. Frohlich has previously proved to be a master at blurring the boundaries between genres, and much of the material on show here follows a similar blueprint. Opener 'One More Time' sits somewhere between hypnotic tech-house, stirring deep house and lilting nu-disco, while 'Repeat After Me' fixes hazy, dub techno style riffs and chords to a rolling, peak-time house beat. Elsewhere, 'Again and Again' joins the dots between dub house and dub techno, while 'Acid Routine' combines attractive musical features with jacking drums and mind-bending TB-303 motifs.

Review: Benjamin Froehlich's musical involvement traces back many years in the cosmic disco and balearic scene, and into the networks of Robert Johnson club. It's fitting then that the Permanent Vacation co-head presents the latest installment in the Offenbach institution's label arm, with the strobe-lit and psyched-out acid house euphoria of "Club Fantasy", which comes with the Fantasy Verison - a stripped-back tool for DJ use. It's then full steam ahead on the heads-down stomper "Escape" which is perfect for those evocative moments, and ending with the intoxicating swirl of "Dream Machine" which will no doubt create some drama on the dancefloor.

Review: If the name Invisible Temple means nothing to you, there's a good reason for that: it's a brand-new project from Permanent Vacation co-founder Benjamin Frohlich and label regular Bostro Pesopeo. Self Hypnosis, the pair's debut collaborative outing, successful sets the tone for the project by showcasing mostly slow-motion workouts that variously mix and match elements of deep electro, wayward synth-pop, early '80s horror soundtracks, creepy ambient, electronic dub and trippy, bass-heavy chuggers. It's an undeniably atmospheric and sofa-friendly affair, with Pesopeo and Frohlich often making intriguing and off-kilter musical choices whilst retaining an element of hazy melodiousness. The project certainly has legs and, if this fine first outing is anything to go by, should be one to watch in 2021 and beyond.

Review: To the Robert Johnson club, Andrew Weatherall was one of the Frankfurt institution's most beloved residents. 'Lifesaver 4' is a compilation dedicated to the memory of the veteran DJ, featuring young talents and seasoned companions that have paid their musical tribute in order to commemorate the club's 21 year anniversary. Highlights not limited to: Perel's psychedelic off-kilter opener "Feuer & Wasser", the low slung sunset sounds of Panorama Bar resident Massimiliano Pagliara on "Before I Let You Go", club mainstay Gerd Janson delivering a typically neon-lit rendition of Portable's "Unity", the surprising addition of nearby Offenbach-based talent Cedric Dekowski on the afterhours minimal funk of "Livius" and Fort Romeau delivering his idiosyncratic style of hypnotic house on "Another Dymention". "Fail we may, sail we must".

Review: Here's an unusual release; Frohlich is one of the fast rising producers on Permanent Vacation. The Munich label released "Drawn From Memory" as part of Fr?hlich's Rude Movements 2 record last year and now they have commissioned remixes of it. I:Cube, who recently re-surfaced with new material on Versatile, turns the track into a lush, atmospheric affair, led by steely drums and electronic disco pulses. On Chinaski's re-shape, soft rock guitar squalls and epic sound track synth washes collide before a menacing, Gothic groove kicks in, while Aera turns "Memory" into an epic, proggy house groove, full of epic break downs.

Review: Benjamin Frohlich has been at the helm of Permanent Vacation for the past decade, but has only put out a handful of records on the label. However, as Rude Movements 2 shows, he is an adept producer. "Dream City" features some evocative synth riffs that sit atop a jerky rhythm, while "Drawn from Memory" represents a more robust take on this combination. Meanwhile, on "Computer Riot", Frohlich drops a frazzled electronic groove, that is kept in check by ticking percussion - but it's all about the deeper side of house and techno on this release, and the warm purring bass and jittery synths of "Ethereum" will melt even the most cynical, coldest heart.

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.
