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.
