Fabio Della Torre aka Corcos is an Italian DJ/producer from
Florence. A leading figure in Italy’s electronic music scene,
Della Torre is the brains behind Bosconi, one of his country’s
most esteemed house music imprints. Alongside Ennio
Colaci, Della Torre also produces as one half of production
duo, Minimono, themselves veritable purveyors of discerning
electronic music.
Della Torre’s DJ career began in earnest at Florence’s
infamous Tenax club back in 1995. Since then he has
appeared in practically every Italian nightclub of note, as
well as a range of global institutions. Panorama Bar for
example, hosted a Bosconi label showcase, while Concrete
Paris, Tresor, DC10, Rex Club and Flash DC are all among
those who have played host to Fabio’s unique sound.
Fabio’s association with Tenax is still well and truly alive
today, as these days he DJs at the club as a monthly
resident. An association that’s indicative of his timeless
sound, his longstanding relationship with the club affords him
a unique opportunity to showcase his wide-ranging skills to
Florence’s many electronic music aficionados. As likely to
spin deep house as he is minimal techno or more up-tempo
funk numbers, Della Torre’s passion and unpredictable
nature is a hallmark of his extensive DJ style.
In 2008, alongside Ennio Colaci Fabio founded Bosconi
records, with its sublabel, Bosconi Extra Virgin (an outlet for
more eclectic releases), following soon after. To date,
Bosconi has released over seventy records, with A Guy
Called Gerald, DJ Nature, Andres, Paul Johnson, Scott
Grooves and San Proper just some of those they’ve played
host to. Bosconi is equally dedicated to fostering emerging
Italian talent, with Herva, Life’s Track, Nas1, Rufus, Dukwa,
Riccio, Mass Prod and The Clover all equally responsible for
the label’s quick ascension. Such is Bosconi’s reputation
among in-the-know house heads, that in 2013, they had the
distinction of being awarded Resident Advisor’s ‘Label of the
Month’.
From a production perspective, Fabio’s solo works have
appeared on the likes of Concrete Paris, Vibraphone,
Robsoul, Inner Balance, Telegraph, Tuning Spork, Tenax and
Oslo, while Cabanne, Marcel Fengler, Regen, Jay Haze,
Eduardo De La Calle and Scott Grooves are among those
who’ve remixed his work. Never one to pander to obvious
trends or sounds, it’s with good reason that Fabio Della Torre
is renowned as one of Italy’s finest electronic music exports.
