Borghesia - [PIAS] 40
Borghesia Slovenian multidisciplinary techno group was founded in 1983 in Ljubljana by Aldo Ivancic (drums) and Dario Seraval, Borghesia created its aesthetic, using the imagery of what was forbidden, taboo and repressed.
[PIAS] co-founder Kenny Gates:
“Aldo Ivancic, the leader of Borghesia, turned up one day on the doorstep of the Play It Again Sam office in Brussels unannounced. He insisted to play me their music inspired by the then-Belgian electronic body music scene and he was adamant that we were the label they absolutely wanted to be on. The music was great, dangerous and championing the recognition of the prohibited and repressed subculture and underground. Aldo had driven for 20 hours with his boyfriend from his native Lubjana in Slovenia.
The wall hadn’t fallen yet and this was a real commitment and also an expensive trip. It so happened that for every album we released, they drove from home to hand deliver in person the tapes of their music. I was always very fond of them and despite the dark and leather world Borghesia was projecting; the music was amazingly groundbreaking and also one of the kindest people I have ever met.”
