Review: Spanish DJ and producer Terr returns after a series of fantastic releases on Scuba's Hotflush imprint. This new one for the Munich based Permanent Vacation sees Daniela Caldellas serve up three retro-tinted excursions for the dancefloor. From the neon-lit EBM groove of "Have You Ever" featuring some captivating vocoder styles. Likewise "Memoir" continues with her newfound penchant of grinding analogue arpeggios, rusty drum computer rhythms and all round '80s aesthetics. Finally "Twenty Thousand Leagues" goes back to the spacey and techy vibes of her previous work, with this deep and atmospheric piece of mood lighting for the late night.
Review: Munich-based Permanent Vacation perform their usual yearly ritual by serving up a bunch of essentials, with their seventh edition here including a whopping 25 tracks. Kicking things off in style is Madrilian producer Pional's uplifting anthem "Tempest", label chief Benjamin Froehlich appears with "Drawn From Memory" which receives an evocative rework by French legend I:Cube, while German nu-disco heroine Perel is on point as always with the neon-lit "Angelika". Elsewhere, Irish duo New Jackson present the glassy-eyed and bittersweet "Romancecar", label co-head Tom Bioly gives us the deep Italo vibe of "Night Heat", label staple Fort Romeau shows off his usual knack for emotive dancefloor drama on "Heaven & Earth", plus the worthy addition of Terr's dark disco delight "Have You Ever" (Dub Version).
