I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS PAULISTO! Chromphobia and all his Kompakt shit kicks ASS!
Cop his album or check out his myspace: Gui Boratto!
OOORRR CHECK OUT THESE VIDS!!!! ENJOY!!!
This will be one of the best Sahara acts of the weekend. No question.
Gui Boratto is one of the only good Sahara acts on the bill.
great producer/dj! If I go I will definetly see him. I got my good friend from Sao Paulo SO into him that he has seen him probably 5 times in Brazil. We need more acts like Gui.
support my thead if you like Boratto!!! http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26216
I'm down, so long as he doesn't conflict with Leonard Cohen.
His new album "Take My Breath Away" sounds pretty good so far, it popped in the internets today...Can't wait to finally see him live!
thanks for pointing this guy out. I dig him. I loove researching and myspacing all the unknown bands. Wooooo
Yeah, I'm surprised people weren't all over Boratto. His last album got a lot of hype in 07 even outside of the EDM scene.
Boratto's new album Take My Breath Away is amazing. Get this and Chromophobia! Awesomeness.
I LOVE THIS MAN! I can't waiiiiit!
Ok some faves off the new album:
I'm totally stoked for this guy. I just discovered him today and have been going crazy picking up his tracks.
Yep. He is my #1 (of about 4) sahara act to see this year. I've exhausted his live youtubes already.
Fans of Gui should also check out Supermayer (they're on the lineup). Supermayer is Michael Mayer and Superpitcher, both of whom have played an integral role in shaping minimal into what it is today. They're on the same label as Gui as well, kompakt records, who most notably released the fields "From here we go sublime"
Please don't mention The Field.
Yeah that was pretty fucking depressing.
I'm listening to some of his tracks now & realized I have "Mr. Decay" on one of my mixes. Love this track & every other one I've heard by him thus far. Will definitely be checking him out.
Anyone else have recommendations for more good minimal/tech house?
I know and own CDs by Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y., Gregor Tresher. Together with Gui Boratto I am looking for more stuff like this.
I'm sorta new to this, mostly into D&B.
Donaldj, the two artists I mentioned above are great (Michael Mayer and Superpitcher). I'm really into a lot of artists from kompakt records, a great minimal techno/microhouse label. They've put out compilations every year since 1999 called "Total", which are a great place to start. Another great artist from kompakt is Justus Kohncke.
Besides kompakt another notable artist is Ricardo Villalobos. He's probably one of the better known artists in this genre and I hear is he EXTREMELY good live.
Also, check out Alex Smoke.
There are many many more I am leaving off, but these artists are where I got my start in this genre.
Sweet, thank you. I had actually heard of the name Ricardo Villalobos. I'm gonna check out some of his stuff and then work on your other recommendations.
