so gerd and philipp were due to play xoyo one saturday night and the club is 6 minutes from my studio so i suggested we go there first to make tunes for a few hours. we made 2 songs that night and one of them is ‘reach out’. gerd did the drums on my 808, philipp wrote the beautiful lead part on my obxa and i did the bass in my cs80. i added the words a couple of weeks later, they are inspired by leonard cohen’s letter to his muse marianne ihlen on her deathbed. (joe goddard) including fantastic remixes by erol alkan and osborne.

after the original comes the remix. or in this case three. i:cube, chinaski and aera help you refresh your memory and re-draw drawn from memory from benjamin fröhlichs second part of the rude movements series. its one single track, but every remixer has taken his very own approach and came up with a new interpretation. the iconic french producer and permanent vacation long time favourite, i:cube, transformed the original into a soul warming and heart melting late night bomb that lets the sun appear even in the darkest places. chinaski out of frankfurt, well known from his releases on live at robert johnson and uncanny valley, fuses italo disco with a john carpenter-style soundtrack aesthetic and an infectious bassline completed by a full on guitar solo in the break. aera, fresh from releasing his album on permanent vacation, is slowing down the tempo, rearranging the layers of the original and adding a bubbly and underwater atmosphere that let the dub stabs shine. three different versions that may represent different memories of one long night.
2x12 inch vinyl with download voucher in slipcase with 5mm spine, black innersleeves and sticker.
everything begins with changes, whether you re moving geographically or emotionally. aera’s album „the sound path” tells the story of this sentiment.
born in the high north of germany and now a berlin resident, ralf schmidt aka aera first appeared on the electronic music map when he established his own aleph music label back in 2010. with only a handful of releases, aera was able to lay out his very own musically topography on the cutting edges between house, psychedelia and breakbeats. this colourful mix culminated on his debut album „offseason traveller” in 2013, resonating the past forty years of electronic music, which brought him the attention of a wider audience as well as fellow djs and producers. so it was a logical consequence that his talent also attracted other labels and lead to widely praised releases on innervisions, maeve or john talabot’s hivern discs. with these, aera’s sound bloomed further into bubbly acid and trancey territorries and his fine reputation as a singular producer, travelling dj and remixer flourished. with „the sound path” aera continues his musical travels and permanent vacation is gladly hitchhiking on that ride. his second album is the most coherent and definitely most personal work to date. here, he has perfected his sound even further - adding nuances from the meadows of new age, kraut cliffs and high-flying kites of ambient. complete with the cinematic and nature-esque qualities of ralf’s music, it will draw you in deeply through a great variety of landscapes before your inner eye. however, you’ll never lose track, because this path is beautifully illuminated.
brazilian born producer and self-confessed studio freak terr will be making her debut with have you ever on permanent vacation. she found recognition with her creative, quirky electronica productions, said to be heavily influenced by her use of analog gear, her sound is a combination of techno, house and disco with futuristic textures and elements. throwback disco meets techno, alongside a scintillating synth in have your ever, not forgetting the mesmerising robotic female vocal hook. a thunderous kick drum bass line combo takes the dub version into a more late-night dance edit of the original. hauntingly cinematic with its hook line, memoir hints on some intergalactic synthetic inspiration, which builds into a nearly disco-esque breakdown. this track lends well to roll into twenty thousand leagues metallic and bubbling with its multi-layered textures. its delicate and finely tuned.
fter his acclaimed contribution to the permanent vacation 10 years anniversary compilation, pional returns to the label with the miracle ep just to reach new heights in this fruitful relationship. madrid born and raised miguel barros established himself as an outstanding producer with his great pop sensibility and attentions to rich details whether with his solo eps, his on-going collaboration with the like minded john talabot or his remixes of fellow artists. on the title track miracle (comes in two different versions) pional is able to perfect his emotive dancefloor approach with a blend of poppy melodies and his distinctive singing voice, but all passionately rooted in club music.
calling in the favors: marcel dettmann, roman flügel and scuba under his scb inversion disguise, take apart songs and tracks from tuff city kids debut album adoldesscent. dettmann, submisses to his new wave and em callings, keeps the song that is scared intact, but mangles it into a fast-paced pogo piece, while flügel uses his second take of rmancer (see the happy gerdy remix for reference) to push it into the k-lauer abyss, before scb inversion tones down the rockism of nordo and makes it inherently his own. to complete the picture, you get thorarium by tck themselves. a previously unreleased track that is basically a remix of a previously unreleased track
carl gari is a group of three from munich: jonas yamer, till funke and jonas friedlich. they released their well received and idiosyncratic debut (npr mentioned it as one of the 50 best albums in 2016) on the trilogy tapes, for which they collaborated with egyptian singer and spoken word artist abdullah miniawy. for the second release on permanent vacation they perfected their unique blend of psychedelic ingredients, dubbed out drums, drony sounds and a general hazyness. the mystic chants of abdullah, who is also featured on two tracks, weave themselves into the bands lively sound texture. apart from that carl gari showcase the diversity of their analogue driven and melodic approach to electronic music through four beautifully detailed tracks.
after his joint ep with sascha sibler and his fabulous contribution for the ten years anniversary compilation of the label, daniel bortz returns to permanent vacation with his first solo ep since the infamous bella avgvsta trilogy. four tracks that are hard to pigeonhole and show the great variety of daniel bortzs production skills: you will find euphoric techno, hard hitting dub, cinematic breakbeats and heart warming electronica, all dancing harmonically in a giant echo chamber.

multi-faceted irish musician david kitt aka new jackson returns to permanent vacation in full force, riding high from releasing his critically acclaimed debut album from night to night, which was filled with rich melodies, dusty synth pop, late-night boogie and cinematic deep house. for his third pv ep, new jackson tightens the strings and brings back the bounce with two rather floor-friendly tracks that are still deeply rooted in the unique new jackson universe. to round things up feather by feather is a love-trenched early morning anthem, which is the perfect soundtrack for doing all things that are nice in this world.

while red axes s ode to the sun is still running strong one and a half years after its release (it even made it into last year s top 50 at resident advisor), here comes the heavyweight remix package: german wunderkind konstantin sibold is hitchhiking the original into afro rave territories with vodoo percussions and a hauting bassline that will be hard to escape from. fango from the italian degustibis family continues his string of strong remixes as he turns the original into a rough beat version just to drop the melody in the break for maximum dancefloor mayhem. and last but not least the axes themselves come up with a tropical house version that works any time any place. and thus the sun continues to shine.
here comes argoman, the antihero of disco music. inspired by the 1960s b movie super hero argoman, the name literally means lazy man, however its also a combination of three italian producers names, who started the project about one year ago. the track chimicalissimo merges the vibrant rhythms of disco with the emotional approach of modern electronic music. its a peak-time dancefloor banger completely produced with analog synths and drum machines. the tune is a proper voyage between syncopated rhythms and heavy basslines soaked with synth melodies that often recall idm progressions. the dub version gives more space to a melancholic piano melody that culminates through analog arpeggios to an unstoppable build. black spuma remix finally turns the track into a slow burning disco monster.
remixers getting remixed! the first batch of interpretations for tc’s 2016 debut album adoldesscent arrives with a trio of artists above the ordinary. while tensnake and joe goddard take care of tell me (the former delivers one of his peaking trademark tearjerkers, while the later one is basically meditating on himself), gifted &blessed roman flügel turns the proto-rave of r-mancer into a joyful ride through post-house that not only will make gerdy happy. one record for every turntable.
benjamin fröhlichs 2016 ep rude movements gets the remix treatment by some of his favourite artists: permanent vacation long time collaborator and partner in crime lauer tugs amos in with a very cosy frankfurt trance blanket, while running back regular shan pulls out the curls of holloway thanks to his magic styling iron. the result: a pumping and string heavy affair. on the flipside brusselss wunderkind cleveland delivers an energizing and mesmerizing breakbeat version of ghost orchid for the magic moments in life. while siss finest jack pattern come correct with a cosmic disco reinterpretaion of spitting image

Ähnlich wie bei tuff city kids selbst, geht es bei -adoldesscent- nicht um eine bestimmte stilrichtung oder einen sound. vielmehr ist es der ansatz der verschmelzung. und damit ist endlich der nachweis erbracht, dass die verschiedenen ecken des elektronischen musikspektrums wesentlich mehr gemeinsam haben, als man gemeinhin vermuten würde. aber was noch viel wichtiger ist und am ende mehr zählt als all das: es zaubert ein lächeln aufs gesicht!
the unstoppable tag team gerd janson and phillip lauer aka tuff city kids have another surprise up their sleeves with their first full on vocal track labyrinth, which is also a precursor of the soon to be released first tck album. who else but norwegian wonder woman annie could be better suited for the job on the microphone? the result is a timeless disco mutant for all centuries. and who else but new york don morgan geist could do the remix job? he delivers a notorious disco dub version that lets all of you disco vampires burst into flames. if this wasn’t enough tuff city kids give themselves a taste of their own sweet medicine and lift labyrinth onto the thougher club floors. for all creative djs, there is also a heavy percussion workout by mysterious dj oyster. here we go again!
