Having released a slew of records on such labels as Involve, Attic, Odd Even and Dustin Zahns Enemy, the Italian duo now presents its most cohesive musical statement thus far on Ellen Alliens BPitch. On the three tracks of »Drops In Heaven«, Boston 168 seamlessly mold together lysergic acid lines with elements of nineties ambient techno and a rhythmic groundwork that is as thrilling as it is intricate.
»Cosmic Tribe« translates its idea of universal togetherness into a nerve-wrecking groove punctuated bycomplex percussion work and a subtly building acid line, while »Drops In Heaven« uses a booming kick drum as base for an emotionally driven exploration of sonic textures. The psychedelic »Straight to Light« nods tonineties pioneers like Emmanuel Top, showcasing Ferramosca and Paces talent for creating musical depth by ingeniously bringing together a few select elements to greater effect.
These are tracks that relentlessly head towards the unknown final frontier of what techno can sound like in 2018, while not in the least neglecting the rich tradition that they draw from.
