hello again. this deserved a separate post. In a few days
we will have the latest IDIB 12" in the form of Bottin "No
Static". Bottin is from Venice Italy and has been flying under
the radar for a while. Our aim is to bring him into the
limelight where he belongs. He is not only a stellar producer,
but an excellent dj with an even more excellent record collection.
To prove this we offer you a mix by Bottin as well- that you can
download below. People always say ITALO this and ITALO that.
Well, here's some italo from you by a fellow Italian living in Italy.
We will make an announcement when we have these in stock for
mailorder. As always , strictly limited edition.
  • visit his website
  • sample the 12" here

  • When Italians Did It Better Mix

    to the first person to get the tracks on this mix. its a tough one!
    Also i cant stress enough how awesome Benguin's mix is. If
    you havent downloaded it , do it now!!! (its below us)

    congrats to Michele Riviera!
