Boot & Tax per Discosafari: nuovo podcast!

Boot & Tax is the name of the self-effacing duo exploded at the end of 2013 with the Acido Ep on Optimo Trax, the offshoot label of JD Twitch’s Optimo Music for tracks aimed at DJs/dancefloors. Now the Milanese maestros are back on OT with the new bomb Fusci EP - 4 tracks in their own inimitable and distinctive style. Here's a fresh mix made just for Discosafari - what are you waiting for? Listen and download it!

Find below a small preview of what it has been said until now about Fusci EP by Boot & Tax:

"Boot & Tax return with their second EP following the success of the sold out "Acido" EP which received a multitude of plays from a plethora of djs in a profusion of discotheques.These Milanese maestros deliver four dance floor delights in their own inimitable and distinctive style. Working across a range of tempos and incorporating more of Boot's great vocalising they also manage to weave a Jaw's Harp solo in there and make it seem like a potential replacement for the TB 303."
on Optimo Trax

"JD Twitch seems to have an obsession with Italian music; amazingly, four of the first eight releases on the excellent - and typically hard to pin down - Optimo Trax imprint have come from Italian bands and producers. This second EP from Milanese twosome Boot & Trax fits into that category. It's as stylish and - on occasions - dark as you'd perhaps expect, variously being influenced by '80s industrial, fizzing post-punk, chugging Chicago house and strobelight electronica. There's naturally much to enjoy, from the hypnotic, left-of-centre Italian house revivalism of "Il Canto" and fuzzy "Occhi Blu", to the energetic, darkwave-meets-punk funk rush of the irrepressible title track."
on Juno

"Kinky Italian disco electronics from Cristian Croce and Claudio Brioschi aka Boot & Tax for Optimo Trax. They've got a neat line in wiggly triplets going down with the tribal cosmic trudge of 'Fusci' and the darker, wavier 'Occhi Blue', whilst 'Confuzed House' drops a shoulder to early Chicago proto house sounds you could imagien Ron Hardy spinning, and 'Il Canto' coins a kinda New Beat styled strut."

"In December 2013 the sub-label of Optimo Music, Optimo Trax published a pump to the dance floor, the debut of the duo from Milan of Boot & Tax and the EP ‘Acido’, a track with success in many dance floors and in DJ sets of many artists, and now 4 new tracks arrive by Boot & Tax, another reference with great success, and the vinyl is Out of Stock on Juno, 4 tracks that continue with that distinctive, personal style and great variety of influences in their compositions for the sole purpose of making us dance, opening the EP with more than 7 minutes of dark and hypnotic ‘Fusci’ incorporating some vocals and guitars that trap us and make us mad; in ‘Confuzed House’ rhythms bring us more about Chicago House with the personal touch of the duo, another crazy track with some nice female laughter; dark, darkwave, post-punk on ‘Ochhi Blu’ excellent with more than 8 minutes, with vocals, bass and excellent guitar; and closing this excellent EP with ‘Il Canto’ with tribal rhythms, African percussion, tribal vocal loops, as a tribal dance. Killer release."
