33 years ago, in the spring of 1985, Matterhorn Project appeared on the Swiss music stage and landed a veritable hit with the first single called "MUH! The original song with the singing cows, the yodelling and the alphorn over an electronic disco beat not only spent three weeks at No. 2 in the CH hit parade but also reached No. 5 in the South African charts. It was released in Japan as well as in most European countries.
"MUH! was one of the first Swiss ethno-pop songs and definitely the first one with a techno touch. Meanwhile this has become a genre of its own. After the great success of "MUH!" in 1985, Matterhorn Project created the follow-up single "Yo-lollo-diuh" which focused on Heidi Blum's yodeling. This talented singer had already contributed a small but very popular yodel to "MUH!". The follow-up "Yo-lollo-diuh" also featured Stella's vocals, and the interplay of the two opposing voices is what makes this song so special. It also became a top ten hit in Switzerland.
Matterhorn Project was conceived in 1984 by the two musicians Stella & PJ Wassermann. They had already become enthusiastic about electronic music at the end of the 70s and opened their Space Sound Studio in 1980. Stella sadly passed away in 2011.
Now PJ Wassermann has created two new versions of the 1985 hit "Yo-Lollo-Diuh". The first one is a Ragga remix, which he produced together with DJ Jimmy Tschudin, and which stands out quite radically from the original. The 2018 remake of Yo-Lollo-Diuh, on the other hand, stays close to the original and concentrates on an up-to-date sound. In addition there is a new, chilly song called "Alpine Sunrise" that highlights the yodeling talent of Heidi Blum. Last track on the "Yollo" EP that will be released worldwide for download and streaming on November 9, 2018 is the original version of "Yo-Lollo-Diuh".
