Here’s some rather rare electronic for you. The beginning definitely sounds more like club techno, but as it continues, it sounds like a progressive house take on synth-pop. Great pick up around 1:14, super upbeat. You get maximum enjoyment out of some minimal sound.
One of the last times we covered Gui was a Massive Attack remix back in February 2010, where we quoted dailybeatz as calling it “full of intensity without being in your face all the time.” That’s probably the best description you’ll get of Gui Boratto. Music that’s understatedly epic.
And so is Gui. The Brazilian producer hasn’t put out much since 2012, but that’s got to be because he’s busy wearing one of his other hats — like running A&R for Megamusic or working with a major artist like Manu Chao. The guy’s also had a career in advertising and is a trained architect. What’d I say? Understatedly epic.
You know, I love that this track is called “Haute Couture.” Imagining some high-quality, expensive fabric being sewn by a master dressmaker with extreme attention to detail fits the bill for these little beats that turn out big noise. You can listen to more excellent Gui Boratto music on Myspace or stay on top of his output on his homepage. More epic mixes hopefully on the way…
