ZEEZOUT PODCAST 154 | BENJAMIN FRÖHLICH
The Permanent Vacation co-founder oversaw the release of scores of genre-defining hits over the past decade and is himself responsible for a handful of dance floor scorchers too. Recorded in home quarantine Benjamin blends forthcoming Permanent Vacation cuts with rich italo-disco and synth-pop arpeggios, raucous house kicks, breakbeat stompers, and breezy soulful melodies to escape to an imaginary retrofuturistic sun-soaked dance floor.

OUT SINCE 23th August: Benjamin Fröhlich - AMIATA REMIXES
Incl. Remixes by Massimiliano Pagliara, Rhode & Brown, Panthera Krause, Cornelius Doctor
After the original comes the remix and after the album the remix ep: 5 producers take on their favorite tracks from Benjamin Fröhlich's debut album "Amiata". First up is Panoramabar resident Massimiliano Pagliara. Fresh off from delivering his latest album for Live at Robert Johnson, Massimilaliano strikes a raving disco remix for "The Big Sun" in the best Metro Aera and Bahlihu tradition and lets no eyes dry and no foot on the ground. Rhode & Brown of Munich turn "Tivoli" into a choral house affair for late nights and early mornings, while Good Timin' Boss Jex Opolis, who just released his extraterrestrial "Earth Boy" EP on Dekmantel, funks and speeds up "Secret Alphabet" for maximum dancefloor pleasure. Next up is Leipzig's Panthera Krause and co-owner of the ever growing Riotvan label, on which he just released the summer anthem "Genki Girl". Panthera Krause comes up with a heart warming electro version of "Memory FM". Last but not least is rising star Cornelius Doctor from Lyon, who is turning heads at the moment with his partner Tushen Rai and the amazing Hard Fist label. The Doctor slices and dices "Secret Alphabet" into a chuggy acid monster.

Benjamin Fröhlich has struck many chords in the arena of electronic music: as a party organizer and record shop owner in his early days, and now as a label owner, DJ and producer. He is the co-founder of Permanent Vacation Records together with Tom Bioly, which has been up and running since the tropical summer of 2006. Emerging from the vibrant Cosmic Disco and Balearic scene, Permanent Vacation has been going strong over the past decade with genre-defining hits, albums and compilations. Fröhlich and Bioly have worked together with the household names of the international electronic dance scene. They have scouted artists like John Talabot, Todd Terje, Tensnake and Mano Le Tough early in their careers and released their breakthrough records.
On top of his dedication to explore and feature rising as well as accomplished artists, Benjamin Fröhlich himself has emerged as a producer of vibrant tracks that are testament to his versatile and compelling approach to club music. His 12 inches, which were well received by DJs and clubbers alike, are accompanied by acclaimed remixes including his Tuff City Kids rework, which made it on Roman Flügel’s Fabric Mix Now his first album is ready to go! Amiata is a conglomerate of Benjamin Fröhlich's longstanding experience. Just like his DJ sets and work for PV, each of the album's tracks expresses a different facet of his musical preferences. While keeping it under the roof of Benjamin's specific sound, the tracks range from Dub hybrids to Italo, Disco and Boogie inspired tracks, 90's spacy breakbeats and Electro to classic house ( 'Last Night' features rising U.S. artist Dreamcast).
