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).

Review: Danish power trio of electro-pop persuasion consisting of of drummer/DJ/producer Tomas Barfod, and the two-headed vocal monster singer/bassist Tomas Hoffding, AKA Bon Homme and singer/guitarist Jeppe Kjellberg present us with a dreamy, deep and ethereal journey much in the vein of their own productions as a continuous mix. Highlight include The Acid's "Ra" (David August Remix), George Fitzgerald's melodic journey track "Your Two Faces" and DJ Tennis with "Diversions" and the Roman Flugel remix of it which is just amazing. All in all a consistent mix that'll help you drift away wonderfully. Available as individual tracks plus a bonus continuous mix.
