The 52nd Arteq podcast is here all thanks to a Melbourne talent known in the light as Andrew Roberts, and by night, known as Bosco.
Bosco, DJing since 2013, has been consistently playing at Melbourne's hottest spots-- Revolver Upstairs, Glamorama, Xe54 to name a few, while also performing at festivals Splendour in the Grass, Strawberry Fields and Let Them Eat Cake.
He's in form, and this set he has produced for the Arteq family is no different. It's 88 minutes of hot acid lines, cheeky analog, vibrant house, and playful modulars. Don't let those positive words fool you though, this set still packs a punch the whole way through, and will get you moving to, and appreciating the playlist.
Thank you Bosco, this mix is exactly what we want. You superstar! See you at an Arteq event soon brother.

Who is Bosco?
Bosco is a DJ based out of Melbourne, hailing from Gippsland. He has been working in the nightlife industry for almost 10 years. Enjoys dark rooms with loud music and finds joy in playing music for others in said rooms.
What direction did you take on the podcast?
I like to give a little air time to tracks that might not always get enough when I'm playing out, whether they are a little too challenging, or not quite fit for the floors I normally play on. I've really let my mind wander on this one, selecting a few forgotten gems from the corners of my playlist and improvising and adapting from there.
When and why did you start DJ'ing?
I started DJing in early 2013, I'm not exactly sure why, I was definitely drawn to the technical aspect of it first, before really falling in love with house and techno. It seems I was technical first, and then I got really further into the music side, digging and finding great tracks.
What has been your best DJ set & why?
Almost too many to pick just one, but of late notably, the parties that were going down post covid restrictions, full room, full dancefloor really were quite special. Lock down wasn't easy for anyone but that was just like 2 years of pent up energy in a room collectively, it really made me remember why I love DJing. On a bigger stage, my sets at Strawberry Fields, Let Them Eat Cake & Beyond the Valley will always be great memories.
What are you most looking forward to in 2022?
Looking forward to getting back to some international travel, and an uninterrupted festival season!
Any upcoming gigs or anything exciting coming up for you?
Nothing too crazy for me at this stage outside of the regular club gigs.
There’s 10 minutes left before the world self destructs, what song do you put on?
It would be a tough decision, I feel the obvious for me might be Time - Pachanga Boys, but in reality I might have to hear Breaking - Kyodai just one more time.
