Intuitive and inventive, Bosko's minimal, textured techno channels both the light and dark sides of Chicago house, electro and grime, invoking rhythm as his essential musical basis.

While studying percussion in Norway's techno capital Tromsø, Boska began producing sparse UK-influenced house and dubsteb in his studio. Encouraged by like-minded producers such as Love OD label head Per Martinsen and Charlotte Bendiks, he began performing in the city's nightclubs, expanding and subverting his danceable techno acoustically and electronically in live performances and on several releases. Most recently, he's remixed Hindi music into epic rhythmic synth and drum tracks, featured on Trax Couture's the Whole World Series Mixtape, and performed at CTM, Malmö’s Intonal festival and the Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam with Bendiks, adding his percussive mix to her bass-heavy Chicago house and African and Latin swings.

Boska performs a wide-ranging solo set outdoors on the Expérience stage and pops up again contributing live percussion to Charlotte Bendiks's Sunday night Nocturne set

Presented as part of North-West Passage, a project by Insomnia, Intonal and MUTEK, with the support of the Nordic Council and the Quebec government.
