Bleep Interviews Permanent Vacation
This interview is part of our Permanent Vacation Special Feature which includes an exclusive label sampler for £1 (only available for 2 weeks), interviews, DJ charts and back catalogue sale.
BLEEP: Tell us briefly how you started Permanent Vacation?
PV: The first time Tom and I were in contact was when Tom was working at Compost Records and i was compiling a compilation for them, which Tom was taking care of. After that Tom became a regular customer at my recordshop , i used to run back then. Soon we realized we have the complete same taste in music and since we both had individually the idea of running a label it felt natural to do it together. So, a classic love story!
B: How important do you feel being based in Munich has affected the running of your label – both in positive and negative aspects?
PV: Hhmmm… hard to say. Munich is our hometown and therefore it’s of course special to us. It is always hard to tell if we would be doing things differently if we would have grown up in another city. Munich is a city with a long Disco tradition , with Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder , Freddy Mercury and the Rolling stones used to party here , so it definitely had an impact on us either conscious or subconscious.
B: What has been one of your proudest moments since running the label?
PV: Well, as we heard the Antena “Camino del sol” Joakim remix first time on a big club soundsystem and the place went nuts. This was pretty special for us… or getting an email from Maurice Fulton after just two releases asking if we want to release the Kathy Diamond album was almost surreal. Just when you see that your work was not for nothing gives you a satisfying feeling.
B: List us your 5 favourite /classic/ disco tracks?
Punkin Machine – I Need You Tonight
Supermax – Ain’t Gonna Feel
Hot Chocolate – Don’t Turn It Off
Tamika Jones – Can’t Live Without Your Love
Charanga 76 – No Nos Pararan
B: What do you have planned for Permanent Vacation in the future?
PV: Loooots of awesome music!
We got some great tunes and remixes coming up from Tevo Howard, Black Van , Bostro Peopeo , 40 Thieves , James Curd , DJ Sneak , Barck & Prommer , Dmx Krew , Tbd, Woolfy vs. Projections , Pollyester , Tensnake John Talabot, and many others. We also working on new material for our own project and I really want to make Permanent Vacation beach wear. Speedos and Bikinis and stuff .would be fun
