More about Guti:
A classically-trained jazz virtuoso and national rock ‘n’ roll hero in Argentina, Guti’s double 12” pack for Desolat will leave you in no doubt of his ability to twist a snaking groove into something echoingly hypnotic. The tracks contained here are already a favourite in the record boxes of artists like Loco Dice, Seth Troxler and Marco Carola, while Guti’s life story could itself be the subject of a story by Jorge Luis Borges: "I leave to several futures (not to all) my garden of forking paths."
As a teen, after getting into blues he began hanging with successful Argentine rock bands like the Black and Blues, Ratones Paranoicos, Viejas Locas and Los Piojos. “We were jamming, and I discovered that energy.” Before long, his own band Jovenes Pordioseros were playing to 10,000 people from Thursday through Saturday. But it’s not in Guti’s nature to stay locked in one mode of music. He made time to study salsa from a Cuban teacher on the side, as well as studying jazz under various teachers including internationally-renowned pianist Ernesto Jodos.
It was in the studio of Latin Grammy-nominated producer and friend Leandro Martinez that Guti began experimenting with making house beats and singing on top. And having grown up with music, it didn’t take long before he was banging out several tracks a day without breaking a sweat.
A heartbeat later, he’d landed a hit with Damian Schwarz on Frankfurt label Raum…Musik, and the tune was licensed by Loco Dice for his compilation The Lab. Guti passed a handful more tracks in Loco Dice’s direction, and the die was cast. Guti’s electronic career began to ignite.
Just two years after his first live sets in Europe, Desolat is proud to present Guti’s Las Cosas Que No Se Tocan. The beats follow Guti across continents: Mr Good Vibes was composed in a hotel room in Stuttgart after an argument with a friend, while the serious dancefloor vibes of Sasa, the Hustler and Leuuu were channelled in Martinez’ studio. Leuuu and the Hustler feature slices of glamorous, haunting vocals by Jason Walker, a British singer that Guti discovered on Myspace.
And Sasa boasts Guti’s own vocal touches. Meanwhile, the track Aguanile is inspired by one of his favourite melodies as a child, one that he’s collected many versions of. The last track on the release, El Campeon, reaches a bittersweet ending in the wide open space between percussive trills and a cut-out refrain, inspired by Guti’s favourite Latin storylines of “broken hearts and pain”.
