Boston 168



Torino, Italy


One of the most prolific and talented duos in the world

Along a surface, within the empty silence of an abandoned setting, the factory noises
still echo: in the beginning was the production line, then the working class of the consumer society, lastly machines and robotics as workforce. So in those factory cities, in
Michigan as in UK and in the Italian Motown Turin, the industrial plants have been occupied by the rave subcultures, the mechanical noise replaced by the sound of techno. 

Now the plants have become sound venues, and getting involved with techno can be
seen as a search for a meaning for the kids who grew up in that industrial setting. In
Turin, industrial and musical manufacturing city, Boston 168 is born, formed by Sergio
Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca, an analogic duo that through sound production aims
to redefine a peculiar field of the electronic sound, Acid Techno. 

Boston 168 is a laboratory of sound crafting: Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca are
two electronic researchers, who have spent years working on vivisecting sound in order
to create new solutions for the techno substance. In 2010 the two young producers cofound Old and Young label: a combination of the experience of Gambo with their fresh
point of view in order to rewrite the basis of techno. The two young producers start
working on their live set: as a result, they irradiate with cosmic warmththe dawns in
warehouses, ex-industries and clubs, taking their audience on techno voyages at traditional speed, looking for new gravity spaces and sound blackholes. 

 Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca’s meticulous work mixes up the acoustics of the
traditional machines which made the history of techno, Roland Tr909, Tr707, Tb303,
Avalon Abstrakt Instrument and other technological hardware. 

The feedback of the international techno community is huge: Boston 168 published on
different labels such as Enemy, Involve, Attic music, Odd/even, Bpitch Control, along
their EPs and music, which has attracted great interest from the whole industry. 

 In 2022, due to the particularity of their trippy and spatial sound, artists as Anfisa
Letyago and SamPaganini trusted them to remix the tracks of their own labels, N:S:DA
and JAM.
