When Permanent Vacation announced plans to release a series of remixes of tracks from John Talabot's debut set ƒin, there was naturally much fervent anticipation given how wonderfully colourful the Spaniard's music is and the respective high profile rolodexes of both label and artist. The standard has been set well and truly high on this first volume which features excellent and truly diverse revisions from Pachanga Boys, Kenton Slash Demon and Bullion. The Pachanga Boys duo of Superpitcher and Rebolledo spring a surprise, delivering no less than three colour specific versions on "When The Past Was Present", allegedly rhythmically coded to be played at various points of a club night, yet all very much in sync with their own infectious Hippie Dance output of recent times. These three remixes hog the 12" so Permanent Vacation have pressed up an accompanying 10" which houses the remaining remixes, with Danish troupe Kenton Slash Demon proving their underrated talents with a ruffed up B Boy refix of "Last Land" while Bullion is in ebullient form with a totally new recasting of the Pional featuring "Destiny".
