So here I am.. after having forced Vakant’s artists to write their own press releases a few years ago, since I think this has a more personal approach besides that everyone is tired of the usual press blurbs, I do not get around to draft something for this 10 Years Vakant compilation by myself.
We are very happy to announce our golden jubilee: “New Wave Of”!
…of what? Of a bunch of young artists we signed over the last years and 49 former releases on Vakant. To honor their actuality, we’re releasing this compilation, which contains tracks from the last 12 EPs in addition to 4 brand new tunes.
Nico Purman returns to Vakant with his most technoid record since his 2009 VA025 Euphrasia EP.
Born and raised in Rosario Argentina, Nico Purman has been roasting the proverbial marshmallows since he first started collecting records, before being completely corrupted by the fabled late 1980’s Chicago Acid House movement. Once debased, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, and The Cure quickly followed all leaving their influence on Nico.
With releases on Vakant, Crosstown Rebels, Mule Electronic, Curle, Modelisme and Art Of Memory his new project and label alongside the graphic artist Melina Pecharki.
In 2016 Nico returns to Vakant with his latest offering of future techno.
The ever evolving ever inspiring Argentinean turned Berliner musical talent that we call our Nico Purman, once again honors the House of Vakant with his latest disco inspired offering to the Gods entitled Visions EP.
After the digital release of the 8-track ‚Family Values’ compilation late summer this year, Vakant is ready to follow up with a ‘Family Values EP’ on vinyl this autumn. 4 selected tracks have made it onto the black gold, even we`re loving each tune like a mother loves her umh.. eight children.

Tis the season for grilling, afternoon beers in the park, and the family reunion. What better way to spend a Sunday then getting into a fight with your drunk uncle over hot dogs and questionable shorts socked footwear combinations?
Vakant is continuing its VALT series with Nico Purman after Dario Zenker’s excursion into Detroit techno some months ago.
Nico Purman, our Argentinean (soon to be Berlin based) drumline captain and all around groove slinger is back for his third instalment on the marching band in the sky that we call our Vakant home.
Who said techno isn’t seasonal? Summer’s ebullience must invariably lead to winter’s depravity. Short days, collapsing economies, and assorted mavericks have set the mood for the return of Argentinean Nico Purman, our winter cycle heavy hitter, with his second EP on Vakant since last January’s Tuesday EP (VA 017).
Fresh talent has joined the Vakant Berlin Boys Tec Team (VBBTT). Argentinean Nico Purman, drummer and no stranger to the world’s dark throbbing dance floor scene, brings us a release nothing short of spontaneous combustion.
