Permanent Vacation Selected Label Works 2

(Permanent Vacation)
US: 12 Oct 2010
UK: 27 Sep 2010

The electronic dance label Permanent Vacation is a fledgling company no more. A little over a year after they released their first monster sampler, along comes a sequel that’s just as big with 22 tracks spanning two CDs. Their roster has been active, seeing that everything here has been culled from just the past two years. Featured artists are Tensnake, Woolfy vs. Projections, Midnight Magic, Azari & III and Sally Shapiro. A few of the label bosses even turn in a remix for Pollyester as well as their own composition, “Zucker Hut”. With one foot in the ‘80s synth era and another in ‘90s techno, many tracks bypass subtle nuance and aim for the hips. Almost everything here is terribly catchy. It’s got pretty much everything you need in a club sampler.
