It’s been over 10 years since the release of Gui Boratto’s breakthrough full length debut ‘Chromophobia’.
As to what its title suggests, he shook up the techno game with a contrast of lushly coloured minimal grooves and melody, whilst many will recall that the album included the highlight single “Beautiful Life” which became a dance floor anthem for that era. Four albums in and countless EPs and remixes under his belt, the Brazilian producer’s unique savoir-faire in carving out a functional album out of diversely routed singles and features is back at it on his fifth studio LP, ‘Pentagram’. Here Gui Boratto lays down a nuanced 12-track narrative that reinvigorates his signature sound into a refreshingly different perspective that feels all too familiar – including the return of “Beautiful Life” vocalist (and Gui Boratto’s wife) Luciana Villanova on the single “Overload” but first enjoy the first outing ‘Forgive Me’ which is available to stream and download now
