Boston 168 @ The Fruit

May 25 @ 9:00 pm


Kinetic Audio proudly welcomes Italian duo BOSTON 168 for a night of mind-bending acid techno!


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. Now in those factory cities, in Michigan, the 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, an industrial and musical manufacturing city, Boston 168 is born. Formed by Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca, the analogic duos 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 co-founded “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 started working on their live sets. As a result, they irradiate with cosmic warmth that 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.

Join us as we give them a proper Durham welcome 05/25!
