Rich Wakley ‘Time To Jack’ EP [Definition:Music]

By | Audio, News | No Comments


DMU025 – ‘Time To Jack’, comes from Rich Wakley this winter, with 2 originals and remixes by Raffa FL and Jey Kurnis to sweep the floor.

Leeds native Wakley has forged a career in house music spanning all its iterations: sometimes deep, sometimes techy and sometimes just plain house. He proves he has electronic music in his blood with various projects whether it’s topping the Beatport charts with releases on labels like Hot Creations or memorable sets performed around the world, from Tresor in Berlin,Space in Ibiza, Ultra in Miami and Ministry in London, to big festival stages at Burning Man, Sonar, Kazantip and Exit.
Right from the beginning Rich serves up a strong beat while he proceeds to lay out the essence house music both literally and figuratively. Raffa FL takes this into a deeper and wetter vibe with his remix of the title track.

Rich quickly dives deeper with second original, ‘Throwin Shapes’; making use of gritty bass and great synth work. A solid track with a very special vibe. Representing the other side of the scale, Jey Kurmis lightens the pressure a bit and delivers an itchy techhouse remix to balance out the EP nicely.

Phil Dark – Morning in Pigalle

By | Audio, News | No Comments


Since finding his home at ‘Le Pigallion’, Parisian dance music stalwart Phil Dark has gone from strength to strength. As creative director of the French club, Dark has become exceptionally well versed in the field of artistic curation and creation.

His latest three-tracker, out now on Future Relics, exhibits this aptitude greatly. “Morning in Pigalle” emerges not only as homage to the district itself, but as a direct reflection of emotions retained and moments lost.

The title track bubbles with a heavy garage feel. Scissored vocals spring through short gaps in the track’s erratic drum pattern as title is reaffirmed by a sun-up soundtrack, assured and confident in nature.

Marcelo Cura steps in to conclude affairs, with a stripped back midnight groove that rapidly builds in strain only to ‘release’ itself (as the vocal suggests), giving way to a myriad of high pitch toms rattling at frequencies beyond recognisability.

A seminal Parisian addition to an already seminal back catalogue, “Morning in Pigalle” moves its audience beyond the borders of its locale and into an international club territory of mutual respect, love and understanding.

The release is out now.

Raíz feat. Permanent Heartbreak – Absence Of You

By | Audio, News | No Comments


Droid Behaviour offshoot VRV is now only four releases in and is currently making almighty waves across the value-baron and overly-populated worldwide dance music landscape.

And Californian duo Raíz are by no small measure responsible.

Heading up the fourth release and fearlessly injecting a concoction of tastefully polished kicks and distorted hats into their tracks, Raiz stumble upon the most finely tuned club music of the last century.

Yet “Absence Of You” is no accident. Its assembly is calculated, its construction formulaic, but ultimately, its intention fulfilled. Three dark, mysterious, jacking club tracks rumble with threatening presence, a frantic and vigorous release already enjoying airplay from some of the world’s most well respected DJ’s.

Permanent Heartbreak, who aided in inaugurating the first VRV release, lend a hand on this one, too. And their influence shines through on track such as “With Me” and “Without You,” which serve to clearly juxtapose one another and appear to convey the same level of craftsmanship and sincerity as heard in previous releases.

As a whole, this EP is VRV’s strongest releases yet, proving that the label, and artists operating under it, are only heading in one direction: up.

The Digital release will be available on 3rd February 2015

Radar with Emma Jayne January 2015

By | News, Radar | No Comments

This month’s show features music from the debut album from Lake People entitled Purposely Uncertain Field which is released on 6th February on Permanent Vacation.


Martin Enke or Lake People as the majority has become to know him has definitely taken his time for his debut album “Purposely Uncertain Field“, given his success from an early stage on and the quick development of the distinctive Lake people sound. But it wasn’t until 2012’s “Point in Time“ EP on Krakatau that his music became enjoyable for a wider audience.

Thanks to Dixon & Ame and numerous other DJs, who included the tracks in their sets and mixes the “Point in Time” EP can be considered a big game changer in Lake People’s career. Without riding a big hype wave Martin lived up to the increasing expectations with a bunch of EPs, on which he refined his production skills. Following the popularity of his own music, Martin also became a sought-after remixer for such acts as Lusine on Ghostly International or Dixon & Guy Gerber on Gerber’s newly found Rumours label. A loyal fan base of his meditative, somehow spiritual, yet powerful house sound grew over the years and made Martin an in demand producer and celebrated live act.

After the fertile collaboration on the “Uneasy Hiding Places“ EP (including the stand-out track “Brooklyn“) and a contribution on the third chapter of the “If This Is House I Want My Money Back“ compilation, Martin has found in Permanent Vacation the perfect home for his debut album.

On “Purposely Uncertain Field“ Lake People doesn’t fall into the trap of repeating himself or recreating a successful formula. Instead he puts all his musical knowledge and his experience into the eleven tracks of the album and expands his already rich sound universe. Above his straighter dancefloor aspects Martin elaborates his approaches to a certain mid 90’s electronica vibe and ambient-like soundscapes with a very cinematic feel to it. Thus he brilliantly manages the difficult task of creating a transcendent and consistent album without losing any tension over the full length.
