Renowned producer Gui Boratto has remixed Douran’s single, ‘Inertia’, released on the 16th of April. The remix precedes Douran’s upcoming EP, Avalanche, which will be released in spring 2021 via Allo Floride Records. This follows the release of the EP title-track, its exclusive remix by Parisian producer Joachim Pastor and Douran’s latest single, ‘Intertia’.
Hailing from São Paulo, Brazil and a well-known name in the underground scene and quickly rising to the mainstream, Gui Boratto has worked with many other legendary artists including Massive Attack, Goldfrapp, Moby and the Pet Shop Boys. During his many years in the industry, the DJ has received enormous support, including features in The Guardian, Billboard, Pitchfork, PopMatters, The Fader, DJ Mag, Magnetic Magazine, XLR8R and Deep House Amsterdam, to name a few, and has collected over 80 million plays across streaming platforms.
Parisian producer Douran has received support from tastemaker Youtube channels MrSuicideSheep, Dealer de Musique and Progressive Astronaut, to name a few, contributing to his playcount of over 2.6 million across streaming platforms. The talented producer has also had his single ‘Race To Infinity’ playlisted by English DJ and producer Nick Warren and has shared a stage with Solumun, Tale Of Us and Henrik Schwarz along with several other well-known producers. Douran draws upon the likes of Johan Johansson, Olafur Arnalds, and David August for inspiration.
Opening with a synth-washed bassline that will create flash-backs to the 80’s, the remix quickly develops into a modern masterpiece of progressive house meeting deep house. Encapsulating Douran’s talent for creating a cinematic universe within music, Gui Boratto takes ‘Inertia’ one step further, into a world of adventure and rhythmic bypasses. The sterling remix calls to mind a unique mixture of Solomun, Ben Böhmer and John Digweed.
Gui Boratto tells us why he chose to take on the remix: “I embraced Douran’s music as soon as I identified the challenge of printing my musical signature while respecting the pillars of the original composition – much more than just remixing. ‘Inertia is such a great song”.
