Gui Boratto – Chromophobia

Gui Boratto – Chromophobia

Chromophobia album cover

Guardian.co.uk:

Boratto embodies many of the innovative qualities that the Cologne label Kompakt has introduced to dance music this decade, principally a lush, emotional approach to minimalism.

Texturally sumptuous minor-key synths, pitched exactly between euphoria and melancholy, provide the foundations for Chromophobia. Around them, Boratto builds tracks using a varied sonic palette, from the grinding electro grooves and brutalist bass of Terminal to the hands-in-the-air pop rush of Beautiful Life, a dancefloor anthem-in-waiting on which Boratto’s wife, Luciana, essays a fantastic vocal performance. The twinkling high-end of Shebang is addictive, while Xilo, all moody riffs and sweeping synths, shows Depeche Mode’s influence.
