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 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 a 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). It is an in-depth exploration of his background and Benjamin Fröhlich’s passion to combine the unforgettable past and the gripping present with the tunes of tomorrow.
Today we premiere Tivoli, a very warm synth-driven feel-good track that makes you long for those late summer nights where everything falls into place.
