3857They’ve been called one of dance music’s best kept secrets: Jackpot. In 1983 the Italian experimental sound artist Marco Donatello and Swedish synth pioneer Gleen Asp made recordings together. Their ambition was to put sound to an art-project, but the result was an erotic cocktail of Italo-esque melodies, EBM rhythms, and filmic arpeggios. Legend has it the music was an excuse to press records off a narcotic solution in order to smuggle drugs, and that a mishap during the operation explains why we haven’t heard much of these tracks before. In any case, this is part of an unknown story of the early days of Swedish club culture and dance music.

But now it’s time to reveal one of Jackpot’s outstanding and futuristic recordings, because the Permanent Vacation imprint is back with the second 12″ release from their joint venture with Swedish label Service (who brought you Studio etc.). Together they present a re-issue of the mighty “Ragazza” by Jackpot, with a masterful rework of “Uno Dos Tres” by DFA/REKIDS darlings Runaway on the flipside.

The 12″ Jackpot “Ragazza / Uno Dos Tres (Runaway Remix)” (PVS002-1) is going to be released March 06, 2009.
