View downloads. In what may be his best work to date, GUI BORATTO strings together various contemporary strands of pop-infused techno and house and translates them into his very own stream of groove consciousness - also an act of cultural appropriation, as both ABAPORU's cover artwork and title suggest: putting an inspired twist on Brazil's most famous modernist painting "Abaporu" from early 20th century artist Tarsilo Do Amaral, they draw from the rich history of Brazilian modern art, where European and indigenous influences would collide in the Scherzo - Sebastian Maroto - Aux Sources De La Guitare exciting manner.
In a dazzling display of sonic depth and subtextual ingenuity, GUI Get The Party Started - Gui Boratto - Abaporu arranges his lush synthscapes accordingly, painting in broad, neo-primitivist strokes and bright colors that - at a closer look - reveal an immense wealth of retro-modernist touches and textural detail. Besides showing off its beautifully crafted melodic flourishes, the album's extended sound palette also flexes its dance muscles on a regular basis - as eponymous minimal bouncer ABAPORU or prime time piano banger JOKER prove with ease: a well-versed dance producer and engineer like Gui knows perfectly well how to lay out a narrative arc for utmost floor impact.
The extent of Gui's muscial bravura becomes abundantly clear with INDIGO's masterfully directed ascension from a deceptively simple, laid-back glockenspiel melody to full-blown string drama in just a handful of bars Get The Party Started - Gui Boratto - Abaporu an Tracking The Beast Of Burden - Stigma - Putrefaction Taste listening experience that primes the canvas for introspective, wistful groover MANIFESTO taking the album's emotional trajectory full circle.
One of the Brazilian mastermind's most satisfying full-length efforts to date, ABAPORU finds Gui at the top of his game, rewiring the electronic circuits that connect European and US dance music to his own - and our - liking.
