12" - Enzo Elia - Balearic Gabba Edits 2

by Hell Yeah Recordings

  • limited 12" + sticker
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    From the man who runs Hell Yeah Recordings and the edit man from the Balearic Gabba Soundsystem comes this vinyl only edit series, now unleashing its second release.

    The first sold out in quick time, with great feedback from a wide range of DJs (from Locodice and Radio Slave to Prins Thomas and Soul Clap), and the second is likely to do the same: taking two classic tracks, Italian producer Enzo Elia channels his love of all thing Balearic and re-edits for the modern day.

    Enzo has been a music loving vinyl obsessive since his teens, with productions on esteemed labels like Hell Yeah, Engrave, Lion1Music, and support for them coming in from the likes of Osunlade, DJ Hell, Carl Cox and Kenny Larkin. On his Balearic Gabba Edits Vol 2 release, though, he showcases a wider production skill than ever before…

    The first edit is Problem by NOW NOW NOW, originally released back in 1991 and an affirmed classic for proper balearic headz.

    Retaining the original’s synth smears, Enzo adds the patter of gentle congas, some micro-bacterial synth sounds and perfectly encapsulates whatever it is to be Balearic in the modern day.

    The second is one of Ramirez’s lesser-known productions, Tambores from the 1993 album Terapia that also birthed better-known classics like Hablando. Here Enzo slows down and strips out the original into something with more humid percussion lines, tribal drums and filtered voices. It’s deep and organic house for the late night hours.

    Bootlegs these are not – completly new re-inventions of two classic tracks they certainly are…


    Chris Coco - "yeah, very nice, proper spacy balearic."

    DJ Rocca - "Stuff from heaven"

    Spiller - "hypnotism!"

    Rob (The Pool - London) - "Hey ,Love these and the first release. The tracks are definitely standing out amongst the revivalist house sound. Very refreshing."

    Eva Pacifico - "I play edit one of balearic gabba supermuch, it really fits the vibes down here :) this one seems to roll on the same trippin' line....will slip into my sets for sure! mmm..I love both trax"

    support by Soul Clap Fabrizio Mammarella, Rune Lindbaek, Tiago, Cosmonauts, diskJokke, Rioutous Rockers, hardrock striker, Drop Out Orchestra, Michael Reinboth...

"If you didn't know, Hell Yeah is the Italian label hell-bent on releasing the best modern disco(ish) you can find. Sometimes it's blissed out and Balearic, sometimes it's squelchy and down-right weird and sometimes it's the sort of enlogated, tribal stuff that works dancefloors into a salacious frenzy" (Kristan J Caryl - DJ MAG January 2014) ... more
