Tour Detroit Presents: Bottin (Italians Do It Better) says

Bottin (1977) is producer, dj and sound designer based
in Venice, Italy. Take a youth spent against a background of old Italian Giallo
soundtracks, add in late 70s Italian disco influences, a touch of free and easy west-coast vibe and a smattering of kitsch.
That just about half describes Bottin.

As sound artist he was selected for Fabrica, the Benetton creative
research center founded by Oliviero Toscani.
For Colors Magazine he curated the Color Music series, presented at
the Sonar festival in Barcelona.
For the Biennale of Venice he designed audio for the Spanish Pavilion by
artist Muntadas.

Bottin’s seminal releases include “Fondamente Nove” on Eskimo
Records and “No Static” for US label Italians Do It Better,
now considered classics of the nu disco genre.

He soon moved to the forefront of the contemporary electronic
scene with his concept album "Horror Disco” on
Bearfunk Records UK, which garnered critical praise for its dashing
display of all of Italo’s delights without the pastiche.
The album’s title may conjure up images of a Goblin inspired trip
through Dario Argento horror movie nostalgia, but in actuality it is
filled with thick, Moroder-esque basslines that inspire dancing rather
than dread.

Later he released a string of singles and 12" E.P.s on Eskimo Recordings
(some in collaboration with fellow Italian producers Rodion and Francisco)
in which the signature italo-disco approach gradually blends into
housed-up dancefloor anthems (Galli, Discocracy, BFR)

Shortly after, Nang Records released “Discoursive Diversions”,
a collection of remixes produced by Bottin for artists
like Lindstrom, In Flagranti, Tosca and many more.

In the recent new album "PUNICA FIDES", Bottin's italo and contemporary disco sound yields to darker,
throbbing electronica, aimed for the club. This new work revolves around the concepts of treachery and
falsehood. It includes a collaboration with Steve Strange of legendary 80s band Visage and Berlin's
electro-punk diva Lavinia Claws.

With an exhaustive touring schedule covering over 20 countries and 4
continents, from North America to Australia, Brazil to Vietnam,
from Europe's best underground clubs to renowned parties like We
Love Space in Ibiza, Bottin’s reputation as both producer and DJ is a
steadily growing force to be reckoned with.
His sets are an unpredictable journey into space disco, trippy house and cosmic rarities.

A reckless blend of retro-futuristic sounds and contemporary
electronica that always sets the dance floor on fire.
Italians don't necessarily do it better.
But Bottin makes a pretty good case (Pitchfork)

Bottin is one of the finest purveyors of electronic disco around at the
moment (Vice Magazine)
