after the release on french label basse resolution and after a couple of years since his last ep on bosconi, having released with the -under the line- track one of the highlights of our latest 10 years compilation and as bss together with his mates fabio della torre and mass prod, rufus is back on bosconi with a new four tracker record which goes on a new direction compared to the past music he did. -ritual chants- was mainly recorded in the abandoned industrial area of milan called bovisa and probably for this reason the release sounds all around a bit sci fi, cinematic and especially gothic. all begins with the raw techno jam of -fast rituals- where structured mellow and dreamy synth lines combine with the dusty, aggressive and driving rhythmical transportation of its drum section. fast rituals is one of those electronic pieces which tells you a story from the beginning till the end, so please pay attention to it. -sapere sparare- looks calmer but actually has the more mental and psychotic feeling of the whole record, driven by an intoxicating and fat bass line, rough jazzy beats and a lot of twisted out fm synths goodness whose times are punctuated twice by the warning female vocal theme of the track. -last shot #5- instead is a jacked out, hypnotic and darker broken house track dense of pumping low ends and subtle but glorious synth riffs properly made for the late hours and totally in the vein of a baby ford - minimal man production.-tenebre- closes up the ep with its horror movie atmosphere, drilling drones here and there, big bouncy bass lines, reverberated snares, drama strings and a dominant sinister melody which slightly reminds of some old dbx track.
bosconi records has long been renowned as arguably italy s foremost exporter of house and techno music. 10 years in, they celebrate one decade in the game courtesy of bosconi stallions volume 2features some of the label s most prominent names.

et bosconi soundsystem finally has landed on the label with a four tracker ep. born as a dj project orginally in 2009, bss features three of the central personalities those have defined in a way the sound mark of the label through the years since its foundation: label owner fabio della torre, mass prod and rufus. this debut release has named -back to front- not only as a work and life statement but also recall one of trio s very intimate baddest habits (please do not misundertand..) first scandalous cut of the front side -( she wipes ) back to front- is the powerful combination of a bouncing and tight 909 groove plus a pulsating fat bass enriched here and there by psychedelic synth lines properly made to excite your pelvic moves between the decks and on the dancefloor.a2 is a voyeuristic happy, funky, progressive and glorious deep techno weapon for the ecstatic peak time moments. on the back side you ll find the cheeky mood of the modular melodic joints of the swinging b1 track named -three healthy birds- and the granitic and new-not-old skool organ vibe of the senselessly titled b2 -i <3 my pinus-. stripped down club music for no puritans
after the much acclaimed coming back with his latest circles ep, electronic uk artist 100hz delivers a new four tracker vinyl on bosconi of previously unreleased and re-worked tunes. -immersive- starts with the swinging and mellow funk of -rio- continuing with the mantric and spiritic vocal theme of -the whisper-, while on the flipside you will find the jazzy boogie of rub tub and the atmospheric and elevating mood of -whiskey pineapple-. this is another journey in the core of modern uk deep techno and house, don t miss it!
after “theory of strings (part1)” ennio colaci and fabio della torre present the second part! the first track of a-side is the one who gives the title to the whole project, - theory of strings-, a dubby groover with a funky and psychedelic feel in the vein of a more coloured and dirtier studio 1 or soundhack. the -feeling good vibe- keeps going relaxed and chill with the smart up and down mood of the track -forty degrees- while on b side minimono get drier, minimalistic and more mysterious with the subtle after-hour jam of rewind. this strong effort by fabio and ennio ends trough the cinematic atmosphere and the romantic piano notes of the gentle but raw closing act -still mine-. mind the strings!
following the well acclaimed comeback on bosconi -gang of fools ep- and the releases on robsoul and vibraphone, fabio della torre and ennio colaci aka minimono strike again with a double release that might be considered as a split album in 2 vinyl records named -theory of strings-.first of two eps starts with the chuggy, jazzy and edgy vibe of -get the groove-, an intelligent partial rework of an underground disco-not-disco old gem. second cut gets more funky-filtered, bouncing and suspended with the fresh broken atmosphere of -back in dc- .on the b side fabio and ennio go back to jazziness adding more broken grooves, some twisted rhodes solo goodness and a persistent hypnotic driving feel to the track -actually-, and then ending this first part with another smooth filtered and toolish winner for the summer called meningi. mind the strings and wait for the second part!
paul johnson is back again on bosconi with a massive two tracker after the 2015 summer hit * i like to get down*. on the a side * lets sing* is a joyful and sunshiny dancefloor winner with a vocal theme reminding us of 60s-70s italian soundtrack a la piero piccioni or armando trovajoli that will dangerously stuck in your head and, with no doubt, that you are going to sing it again and again…on the flip side instead you will find the sick, filtered and groovy jam of * show me*, an hypnotic burner enriched by the trademarked, whispering and sexy words unmistakably from paul himself, pure honey for the ghetto house heads.. just be careful not to get squeezed on the dancefloor!

six years after his mila ep, uk techno artist lee renance, better known as 100hz with james chapman, is finally back on bosconi with another strong 3 tracker release called -circles-, a combination of very sought-after gems and reworks of old tunes: the record begins with the gentleness of the groovy and jazzy vibe of that mega rare undergound deep anthem named -shoot the bar-, a track originally out in 1998 on pacific records which many people have been probably waiting since long time for a repress, while on b side the artist presents himself under one of his more obscure aliases as mr format, going trough more voodooish and hypnotic dub techno territories with a pitched down version of primary colours track, an undiscovered and carefully crafted secret weapon previously released on his own imprint format records. last cut of the record is a totally renovated version of the track oliva out in 2009 on the greatest french logistic records. in this new version , “oliva funk” epic strings and pads merge with compelling and engaging beats creating a levitating effect which drive the mind and the mood of the dancefloor into dreamy soundscapes. you ll make it yours.
