about

Legendary Adriatic DJ and producer Verdo doesn't release often, but when he does you need to listen. He always has one foot on the dancefloor, while the other makes a leap into outer space.

Resident at the infamous Gratis Club in Senigallia, a skilled musician who brings virtuoso playing and someone with his own immediately identifiable sound, Verdo is a real hidden treasure. The Italian has previously released on Danny Was A Drag King and also this label back in 2017, and mixes up anything from afro to acid, disco to downtempo in his grooves.

'Symmetry' kicks off in strident fashion, with throwback piano chords lighting up the airwaves as stomping drums make you move. It's the sound of an all out celebration of the sort we have all been missing recently. 'Babbions' strikes a more tender note, with warm chords rising up through the cosmic arps and long legged drums. It's a twinkling track that glows bright and lifts your spirits no end.

'Procida' layers up more retro-future chords with bubbling melodies and star-gazing pads that will soundtrack sunsets by the sea in perfect fashion. "Second Trip' is a thoughtful track that sinks you into warm grooves, with shimmering keys that bring the romance. This one also comes as a bonus beatless version for lush ambient escapism and sentimental moments.

Verdo's back, and back in style.

Reviews / DJ Feedback:

"Strong EP all round... loving the bounce of Symmetry and piano power off Babbions. Both tracks aimed directly at the floor. Nice change of pace on Procida... the piano works real well alongside those synth chords. Really like the dreamy feel to Second Trip and that piano works it's magic once more. The Beatless Mix is just sublime. Difficult for me to pick a favourite from the bunch. A great release!" - Andy Taylor (We Are The Sunset)

"Symmetry' has a happy sound, reminds me of the early days, music that shares joy. I love the break downs in it and how Verdo has worked the track.. very different to the, now norm. Deeper into the ep it's got that early Italo vibe, a really great Ep... A stand out release! Bravo!" - Grant Williams (Eclectics)

"It's been too long since his last single and the collaboratiuon with Gallo but finally Verdo is back with a synth Moroder-driven house music where (Balearic) house and (Italo) disco are on tropical holidays on Isola De Procida in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. How I wish to be there right now? They say that he has one foot on the dance floor, while the other makes a leap into outer space. I say he somewhere around 2nd reality and future past dimension and he has one foot on the beach and the other on the wood floor behind the decks somewhere around Italy. This is more Adriatic than Balearic but who cares, it's perfect for all the social distance beach parties across the Mediterranean Sea where DJs are mixing Fred Ventura Italo disco classic and sharing Alex Neri Italo House memories."

about

Hell Yeah Recordings Italy

"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 elongated, tribal stuff that works dancefloors into a salacious frenzy" DJ MAG ... more
