If you love electronic tunes that are full of intensity without being in your face all the time, then look no further than Gui Boratto. The Brazilian DJ/Producer has, in my mind, mastered the art of what I like to think of as subtle electronic. There’s no denying that a few minutes into this song, the beat in this one is huge, but the peaks and valleys of this track make you appreciate the highs and lows so much more. It’s kind of a twist on Jason Lee’s memorable line from Vanilla Sky — “Without the bitter, the sweet just ain’t as sweet”. Boratto really turns the heavy beat sections into a wordless chorus, repeating it over and over, and the beauty is that you just want to throw your hands in the air each and every time.

His recent remix of Massive Attack’s “Paradise Circus” is another great, but even more subtle, example of what he does so well. The unique vocals of Luciana Villanova, Gui’s wife, only add to the haunting beauty of this song. I think what it really comes down is that unlike a lot of other producers out there seemingly trying to blow out speakers with each drop, Boratto’s focus is first and foremost on creating a great melodic song, and the fact that the song happens to have a killer beat is icing on the cake.
