Boratto emerged out of the silken dreamscapes of late-2000's Kompakt with albums that paired the regenerative structures of minimal techno alongside a healthy dose of melodic schmaltz, with occasional vocal contributions from Boratto's wife providing pop peaks. The Brazilian producer has since crafted melancholy remixes for the likes of Goldfrapp and Massive Attack, and his live sets are hypnotic affairs of muscular timbral tweaks moving bodies over ocean froth and cumulus clouds. This rare U.S. appearance for Gui Boratto is a coup for Verboten, whose bookings of late have trended towards the carefully manicured deep house now making inroads stateside.
