Drawn From Memory (Chinaski remix) - (7:29) 125 BPM
   
Drawn From Memory (Aera's First Sketch remix) - (7:23) 118 BPM
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.

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: The Future Disco brand has long since stopped releasing anything vaguely disco related; these days, it's all about shimmering deep house and tactile, tech-tinged flavours. All Day Dancing is a concept album of sorts, gathering together a selection of warm, breezy tunes that have rocked open-air parties and beachside festivals the World over this summer. As such, it's a strong collection, showcasing such well-regarded gems as Vimes' "Celestial (Reprise)", Ten Walls' picturesque, string and synth trombone-laden "Walking With Elephants", and Tale of Us' chiming, melancholic remix of Mano Le Tough's "Primative People". Throw in further contributions from Dixon & Guy Gerber, Maya Jane Coles and Booka Shade, and you have a sterling selection.
