Rodion – For Ever (EP)

Release: 28 May 2010
Cat#: Gomma 144

Rodion is back! The “new genius of Italian Dance music” (Mixmag/UK) hits back with an amazing 6–track EP in June. Featuring – oh yeah!!! – Jeppe Kjellberg from WhoMadeWho and world famous crooner Louie Austen.

Singing Las Vegas-style Slow Disco Ballads, beautiful Italian melodies on Balearic house tracks and futuristic crooner pop.…..including some weirdo western whistling. Three years ago the boy from Rome released his debut album Romantic Jet Dance which became a favourite of DJs such as Lindström and the DFA crew. Rodion’s sound is influenced by Italo disco–of course. But it goes way beyond. The For Ever EP is electronic music deeply influenced by soundtrack composers such as Morricone and Goblin. Yes ..this is the future of Italo!

James Holden: “What a great release! Really enjoyed the whole thing, but piano song is the one going in my traktor folder.”
Stephen / Aeroplane: “This release is Fantastic!!! LOVE “Alagoas Cowboys”, “Estate” and “Piano Song”!! 10/10!! Full Support From The SKY!”

Rodion – Romantic Jet Dance (CD)

Release: 17 September 2007
Cat#: Gomma 103 CD

Rodion is from Rome. He makes freaked out Italo Disco that’s ahead of its time. Somewhere between the depths of Lindström and the synthesizer funk of Justice, mixed with the dramatic melodies of Italian horror movies. Heavily influenced by the Japanese science fiction animation soundtracks of the 70’s and the cosmic music culture, Rodion is fully tuned into the extraterrestrial beat.

Real name Ed Cianfannelli; Rodion has a very interesting past. Once a scholar at a famous Catholic music school, he was heralded as the prodigy piano student of his generation, declared as a genius, his career path as the church organist was predicted and expected. He was their great hope. BUT, after a night out with friends, Mr Cianfannelli discovered electronic music and was soon hooked on the Italian nightlife. Inevitably the church hierarchy found out about his weekly rave escapades and were left with no choice but to ask him to leave.

On his new life path Rodion quickly snapped up some equipment from an old Italian house producer and started to combine his classical training with his new disco inspirations. The result is this unique, extremely emotional electronic Weirdo-Disco. (We call it Casio C.o.r.e.)

Unlike many of his peers, Rodion performs live with a band and the crowd euphorically received his recent live performances in Clubs in Paris, Berlin and London.
