Rodion feat. Louie Austen “Estate” (Video)

Here it is: The summer anthem for your Italian vacation 2010…in case you still want to spend your holiday in new fascio Berlusconi-land… Anyway…world famous supercrooner Louie Austen joined Gommafamous producer Rodion in Rome to make a slowdisco version Italian chanson L’estate. A ballad that became famous in the original version by Bruno Martino in the 60ies.

The title suggest a little piece about the beauty of the summer time, but the lyrics are inverse: Louis is singing about how much he hates the summer … the summer that reminds him all the nice days he had with his ex-girlfriends. The song has just been released on Rodion’s new EP For Ever and got amazing feedback especially from non-Italian DJ’s such as Cosmo Vitelli, James Holden, Aeroplane, Larry Tee and Sharam Jey! Video directed by Patrick Spanbauer, written and animated by Louie Austen, produced by Louie Austen and Rodion.


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!”
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..”
