MEDIA FORMAT 12", EP
The talented Verdo runs the famous Gratis Club in Senigallia on the Italian east coast, he has worked with Hell Yeah before, as well as releasing on Danny Was A Drag King, and here serves up his biggest bit of dance floor dynamite to date, including his previously digital only cut ‘Big Fish’ (mixed by DJ Rocca).
Opener ‘Little Blue’ is a perfectly sunny track with hip swinging claps, bobbling bass and boat party vibes that soothe your soul. Rich with instrumentals and golden synth lines, it’s a perfect beat that gets followed up by the retro disco pump of ‘Sazerac’, another tropical cut with loose drums and rubbery bass to get you up on your toes.
The massive ‘Big Fish’ then hits hard with its tin pot percussion and wild synths all making you flail your arms like you just don’t care. Jumbled jungle vibes and big chords all swell your heart as your feet skip about down low.
Closing out the package is Phillip Lauer (Tuff City Kids), one of the most in demand stars of the day, and his version is a direct house jam with percolating and rugged synths and slapping hits, all demanding you ditch your cocktail and get up and groove.
