Bosconi Records has long been renowned as arguably Italys foremost exporter of house and techno music. 10 years in, they celebrate one decade in the game courtesy of Bosconi Stallions Volume 2, a 3 x 12 release that features some of the labels most prominent names.5 years after the inaugural Stallions release, Vol.2 is a timely reminder of the talents of one of electronic musics most consistent labels.Before we get to the music, a word for the artist. Bosconis iconic stallion is presented again, this time by none other than Silvano Nano Campeggi. In case youre unaware of the mans work, Campeggi is one of Italys most renowned contemporary artists. Active since the 50s, he has portrayed cultural icons such as Marilyn Monroe and designed 'Ben Hur's iconic advertisements, which is where he first developed his famous horses concept. His iconic images are associated with the golden era of Hollywood, and he also worked on artwork for the likes of Napoleon and Casablanca.Suffice to say, stunning artwork should only be matched with stunning music, and Bosconi Stallions Volume 2 is very much a triumph in this regard too. From Nas1, who kicks off the release courtesy of the brilliantly bleepy Peli Peli (complete with 8-bit sounds) to A Guy Called Gerald, whose Always sees him welcomed back to the Bosconi fold in emphatic fashion to label boss Fabio Della Torre (who perks up under his Minimono project alongside Ennio Colaci with Pandora Peaks), this is a release thats stuffed to the brim with high-quality electronica.The likes of Riccio (Get It On) and Rei Loci (the suitably named 808) are reminders of the labels ability to introduce new talents, whereas British tech-house stalwart 100hz shows hes lost none of his panache on Tenderness and Rufus (a member of Bosconi Soundsystem alongside Della Torre and Mass Prod) impresses on the haunting, eerie tones of Under the Line. Mass Prod is another individual who makes a stunning solo addition here, with Mathemagix a frankly mental piece of music that has to be heard to be believed.The release is full of surprises too. Lifes Track (aka Herva & Dukwa) impress on the chaotic, UK-inspired strands of Wasting My Time, while Hervas gorgeous Crash Point makes for a fitting finale. Elsewhere, up-tempo cuts from Dukwa (Thanks Daddy), Bosconi Soundsystem (Tutto Gas) and Soutine ft. The Clover (Florence Shuffle) ensure the listener stays enthralled throughout. A package that features a plethora of exciting sounds, the much-anticipated second Stallions series is a real joy from start to finish.
