about

this is the long-awaited, highly-anticipated debut full-length release from architect, producer, musician and composer, gui boratto, born in sao paulo, brazil. those who have followed his steady stream of 12" singles are already well acquainted with his remarkable ear for coming up with emotive, savvy dance music. whether it be his minimal-techno burners for kompakt's k2 imprint, energetic house for steve bug's audiomatique recordings and plastic city, and of course, there was "like you," the sensational pop-techno anthem that broke him wide open on the international circuit early last year. though he recently began producing under his real name (debuting with a remix for the film city of god), what many don't know about gui boratto is that for over 10 years he has been one of brazil's most in-demand producers having worked with such consecrated artists/bands as pato banton, steel pulse, desiree, manu chao and many, many others. with chromophobia, boratto surpasses all experience and expectation with infinite catchy hooks, lazy synths, romantic vocals, and so many shimmering techno-colors, it'll make your eyes squint in the sunshine. many scribes spoke that last year was the year techno learned how to make a proper artist album. well, boratto very well could be the first to perfect the art with this momentous release. it's easy to coin gui boratto as "varied" and "eclectic," however, gui brings a vast spectrum of influences together with an uncanny sensibility to make arguably the seminal kompakt record filled with all the grace and roar in the world to shake the bottoms of the biggest dance haters out there, and get our fans so excited they'll feel like they're on their fifth caipirinha raving on top of the sugarloaf.
