The 9th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the Italian act Bukser. After the dark electro assaults, this act brings the IDM into the compilation with an outstanding track (“Replicant”) reminding of the best from Mnemonic and related great bands.

Bukser is the more upbeat and “catchy” project of Sergio Calzoni, an Italian producer and musician active since the nineties in various music endeavors (Alma Mater, Act Noir, Colloquio, Orghanon). His previous projects were always a delight to discover and so is the case with this one.

The aim of this project is to explore uncommon music territories, where elements of synth-pop, IDM, dub and glitch sounds blend together. Through this project Sergio Calzoni also released several tunes for television and video synchronizations. You can find some more of his work on his Soundcloud page.

For now listen to or download this excellent track.

Check our “Face The Beat: Session 4” page on Bandcamp to discover the other 91 bands. All donations will go to charity.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
