Touted as the secret love child of Donna Summer and George Clinton, NYC ensemble Midnight Magic hit Munich's Permanent Vacation for the third time since 2010.

The sensual Balearic vibe of the original gets taken for a spin thrice, by Swiss legend Lexx warmly revamping it, El_Txef_A sveltely tweaking and preening and The Drifter who nonchalantly grants it heady dancefloor pep.
