We’re not quite sure if Il Bosco is a real person or a cyborg that stalks Manchester’s more salubrious night spots. One thing that is for sure, it’s human alter-ego Christian Wood is most definitely real and presides over Manchester’s Red Laser Records, a vinyl only Italo influenced love letter to music from a bygone neon era with a refreshingly forward thinking attitude. We recommend you check out his blog, a searingly honest and acerbically witty view of all that’s wrong with the state of most of the current dance scene. Look out for forthcoming releases on Red Laser from our very own Nick Smith, Ste Spandex and a double gatefold compilation of ‘mad rare Italo bangers’. The label also throw occasional Red Laser Disco parties, the next of which is at The Roadhouse in Manchester on 4th April with Clandestino fave Ali Renault.
