Massimiliano Pagliara will return to Permanent Vacation with his fourth studio album.
Written during the lockdown period in 2020, See You In Paradise offers the “whole sonic spectrum” from the Italian artist’s universe, we’re told.
Across 10 new tracks, the hardware enthusiast and Panorama Bar resident brings bright melodies, pop hooks, and Chicago house groove, with techno tracks and atmospheric soundscapes.
We’re told that the release “takes you on a journey” through Pagliara’s “mind, body, and soul,” from his disco passion and pulsating dancefloor moments to meditative ambience. It’s inspired, both musically and aesthetically, by disco hero Patrick Cowley.
The release features collaborations with Snax, Fort Romeau, and Init, with whom he has worked before. Curses, Coloray, and Vanessa also feature, as do live musicians playing piano and saxophone.
Under the artistic direction of Pagliara, each artist was invited to bring their own talent to the album, and together they’ve created a “refuge full of beauty and harmony and free from worries in an upside down world,” hence the album’s title.
The release follows Pagliara’s Nothing Stays In One Place For Long EP for the Munich label, which he released in 2020. His three other albums have landed on Live At Robert Johnson.
