Bosconi Soundsystem - Unrequested States of Bliss
Months after their debut release, Bosconi Soundsystem is back with another killer package. The Italian production trio, consisting of Rufus, Mass Prod and Bosconi boss Fabio Della Torre, perk up here with Unrequested States of Bliss, a 2 x 12" offering that's packed from start to finish with spectacular dancefloor-ready cuts.
The title reflects the contents of the album: psychedelic and minimal techno and electro music on a deep and dark tip that speaks to both the mind and the soul. The action kicks off with "Serotonin", a driving tech house jam that's full of driving, spacey atmospheric overtones. "Eclipsed" is a more introspective cut, while on the flip you'll find the anthemic swing of the utterly outrageous "Scaccomatto" and the psychotic electro of "Minor Thinking".
The C side opens with the cavernous bass riffs and the ghostly voices of "Gravel Fire", followed by the funky grooves and twisted synth lines of "No Flowers". An unusual breakbeat track, it marks an interesting turn of direction of a release filled with intriguing motifs from the off. "Blackout" opens amongst a claustrophionic vibe, before things come down a peg or two on the dreamy, celestial strands of "Mandibola".
