Gui Boratto Moves Up Release Date of New Album + Announces US Tour

02-10-09 // by Dudles

"Take My Breath Away" out exclusively on Beatport February 23rd in stores March 3rd USA / Brazil - March 9th Everywhere Else

Acclaimed Brazilian techno artist Gui Boratto will be releasing his anticipated sophomore release, Take My Breath Away, worldwide March 3rd on Kompakt, and it will be available exclusively at Beatport February 23rd. Boratto's follow-up to 2007's critically lauded Chromophobia finds him expanding on his distinct, masterful sense of warm textures, twitchy drum grooves, complex lucid melodies, and deceivingly minimal, ever-expanding compositions. Take My Breath Away is just as anthemic and joyous and as its predecessor, but immediately you hear its       a more refined, sophisticated effort. Kaleidoscopic in tone, Take My Breath Away is miles away from cold techno. Digging deeper into the into the album's hypnotic throb one can hear not just meticulously edited microhouse or the funky stomp of Detroit techno but also prominently shoegaze, pre-goth 80s mope rock, latin-percussion workouts, and classic pop. Take My Breath Away seals Boratto's place in the electronic music community as one of the most innovative, future-thinking producers. He will be touring the US in March/April  beginning at Winter Music Conference and closing it out with a performance at Coachella.
