Bachelite is the second album released by the Italian indie/electronica band Offlaga Disco Pax. Recorded between May and October 2007 and mastered in October in New York City, the album was published by Santeria Records on February 8, 2008. With this album the band developed its sound, which became much more electronica-influenced than in Socialismo Tascabile (Prove Tecniche di Trasmissione).

Thematic elements[edit]

Bachelite's themes are similar to the ones in Offlaga Disco Pax's debut album, "Socialismo Tascabile (Prove Tecniche di Trasmissione)". Collini writes once again about people, athletes and daily happenings linking them to politics, even though "Bachelite" is more introverted and cryptic than its predecessor.
