Italo House and crazy country disco producer Rodion from Rome created a little wave of euphoria among music aficionados when he released his 5 track E.P. For Ever in June 2010. The single Estate with Lou Austen was a little summer hit. Now here comes a remix package with great reworks by some the new house heroes:
Bostro Pesopeo (Permanent Vacation), new Gomma act Mercury, Italian allstars Ajello, Martin Brodin upcoming house shootingstar from Stockholm and Anthony Mansfield from New York. Check the Turkish video by using rare turkish B movie footage from the 70ies. Also: catch Rodion touring live around Europe now..

UK press called him “the new genius of italian dancemusic” … we dont know if he is a genius but we know that Rodion‘s just released new 6-track EP “For Ever” is getting amazing feedback. Older Gomma fans will remember his debut album from 3 years ago and some of his remixes. Now we have this very special podcast for you. Including only Rodion remixes from the last 4 years. The super italo sinth disco rmx for WhoMadeWho as well as his Mando Diao remix that was so big in UK. His crazy mix for Vivek Shraya …..Eurotrash, baby… and the killer mix for Gomma’s The Phenomenal Handclap Band. Rodion is back and he’s bad as burning burma blunts.

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!”
Cosmo Vitelli: “I really like Estate!”
Larry Tee: “I love it…I need it!”
Joe / Punks Jump Up: “Great tracks!”
Severino / Horse Meat Disco: “Hey great package here..”
Rodion, our Gomma man from Rome will come back after 3 years with a new EP in May. An amazing 6 track superromanticextraterrific italodiscohousechanson ep.
Currently he is warming up with some live show. Check this video in Stockholm last week! (Click to open)
Rodion is from Rome. He makes freaked out Italo Disco that’s ahead of its time. Somewhere between German synthesizer funk and 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.
Some pics from our great GOMMA SUPER SHOW in Berlin’s SCALA club in march. We had MUNK live..RODION live..DISKOKAINE, MANUEL KIM, MOONER and TELONIUS playing…lots of friends there…
