Monday chilled track with Massive attack remixed by Gui Boratto

Born in 1974 in São Paulo Brazil, Gui Boratto, architect, musician, composer and producer initiated his career in the advertising sector in 1993. From 1994 until 2004 he performed various works for countless record labels both national and international, such as EMI, Virgin, Irma, BMG, Edel, Vidisco, ZYX, among others. From 2005 he began to dedicate himself to his own productions and compositions, displaying to the public an authoral and more personalized side to his abilities. With countless licenses with respected European labels, such as Plastic City, Circle, Kompakt, Audiomatique, among others, Gui Boratto has managed to appear in the chart and playlists of people like Michael Mayer, Tiefschwarz, Steve Bug, Phonique, Martin Landsky, Hernan Cattaneo, among others. Paradise circus is an EP taken from the album Heligoland. In his remix, he keeps the haunting, elegiac piano and Hope Sandoval’s smoky murmurs, then adds a Peter Hook, gloomy bass, which echoes out over added darkly delicious piano breaks, and sounds of Bernard Sumner-esque guitar. It’s not really downtempo, nor ambient, instead he preserved the vibe of the original, the structure and the harmony with a chopped beat pattern. After doing some programming, he just decided to record some bass and tremolo guitars (With The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen as inflences) with the pulse that kept on going. A very unique remix, that feels very compelling. The resulting atmosphere is quite dark with a spooky chilled vibe…

    Ha cette track me re et re confirme que j’adore Gui Boratto! Il fut de passage dans la ville de Québec l’hiver passé et je me souvient avoir écouté sans cesse ses albums dans des écouteurs en faisant de la raquette dans les bois.(j’ai fait beaucoup de raquette avec des amis l’an passé.) Cette track`(comme bien d’autres) a un genre de style minimal tout en conservant une espèce de groove qui évolue avec la bass qui s’accentue au cours de la track mais tout en conservant sa lourdeur avec un rythme bien construit, sans trop de percussions mais juste assez. J’adore l’ajout de vrais instruments tels que la bass, la guitare très reverbée et les notes de piano. J’aimerais bien un jour sortir dans un club deluxe, boire un cocktail sophistiqué et être témoin d’une telle pièce de musique. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment Étienne but from now on, if you would post in english I would appreciate, not to be picky it’s just that most readers only speak english! Boratto however hasn’t been in Quebec in 2009, his show was canceled due to him being sick. He was nonetheless here in april 2008, on the 4 th if I remember correctly and it was a great evening with MIM spinning funky house like Herbert and Boratto being top notch with his usual brand of melodic minimal progressive house. I like him better as a producer and a remixer than as a DJ as his DJ mix are a bit sloppy and unfocused. If you like his trademark bass guitar fused with chilled beats, then check out his remix of Bomb da bass called “Black river” an outstanding remix that yet sounds like New order meets deep house : http://www.discogs.com/Bomb-The-Bass-Feat-Mark-Lanegan-Black-River/release/1852218

      Cheers! PS : In Hotel Costes in Paris they play Boratto next to your martini it’s as close to being in heaven..
