This is the debut full-length release by Italoboyz. The 2007 hit "Viktor Casanova" was picked out of a folder of hundreds of demos by Claude VonStroke. It went on to sell out many, many times and started a somewhat unlikely and fantastical relationship between a small upstart U.S. techno label and two Italians living in London. The Italoboyz went on to then sign hit 12"s like Zinga to Get Physical and continued their hot streak on Mothership with Bahia, their masterwork featuring the only John Coltrane sample ever licensed for dance music. Italoboyz have always pushed the boundaries and tested the limits of traditional dancefloor music. Bla Bla Bla is the culmination of their hard work over the years and takes them to the next level -- producing live instrumentation. Of course it is the Italoboyz, so the live music is tweaked and twisted, but the source material is much more fluid. There are still some samples, but the majority of new material is recorded from long studio sessions in London with their many friends (including Masomenos). Piano, saxophone, live bass, percussion and old school drum machines show up frequently and are worked and played in unusual and creative ways, forming 70+ minutes you will definitely not hear anywhere else. Italoboyz have a distinct identity and will never get lost in the sea of samey-same music that flows freely these days. Minimal melodicism that thinks about the instrumentation as much as the dance.
