Returning for her second release on Phantasy, TERR captures further dancefloor magic on the blistering Energy Sync. Following the success of Tale of Devotion, the Brazilian-born, Berlin-based producer continues to distill her exquisite instincts into an irresistible single that blends electro and disco influences with flawless song writing.
Doctor Dru and M.E.M.O. team up for the first time on renowned Berlin imprint Mobilee with Barial / Junar. Doctor Dru arrives fresh from releases on tastemaker labels Flying Circus and Diynamic while M.E.M.O., a Mobilee regular, still basks in the afterglow of his 2018 Hispano-American Vicious Music Award for best deep house artist.
Based in Munich, Germany, the producer, part-time DJ and Permanent Vacation label co-head Tom Bioly aka TB delivers new romantics, inspired by influences like The Cure’s The Holy Hour, Boards of Canada’s late 90s electronica, Miami Vice tropic percussion and Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks.
Mysterious trio Mount Kismet present their debut album Warmer Lanes via Disco Halal. Strung together by the dark, alluring vocals of French-Canadian artist C.A.R., the first single, Teenage Fantasy, combines sparse, synth-driven cold wave with the kind of Middle Eastern electronic elements that have become synonymous with Disco Halal.
Core Ellum Audio artist Dino Lenny returns to the label with two more of his deeply enchanting techno cuts. As well as running his own Fine Human Records, Lenny has fine credits on landmark imprints such as Cocoon, Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels, Diynamic, Innervisions and of course Ellum Audio.
Lilium is released a year on from DJ Seinfeld’s 2018 DJ KiCKS! entry, and is something of a curveball. As with all of Jakobsson’s music, it’s honest and emotive, but the sun kissed house and italo of Lilium and Lovejoy is full of happiness and optimism, in contrast to the normally melancholic mood of his productions.
Following a well-received string of remixes for The Golden Filter, Perel and Benjamin Fröhlich, the Los Angeles-based DJ and producer Cooper Saver, responsible for the Far Away party and cassette mixtape series, sets another milestone step in the right direction with the release of his debut EP via pioneering, Munich-based record label Permanent Vacation.
