Guti (Live)

Guti isn‘t your run-of-the-mill electronic artist. Rather, it‘s the Argentinian‘s deep-rooted love of jazz and rock that form the foundations of his musical craft. Although today he‘s best known for his work alongside Desolat, Defected and his own Rompecorazones imprint, there was a time when he was revered as the keyboard player in Jóvenes Pordioseros, a Buenos Aires-born band that enjoyed huge commercial success both home and abroad. Many in his position would have been content to live out the life of a rock star, but Guti harboured a bur-ning desire to explore new paths. Around 2007, he started experimenting with making house and techno, beginning a journey that would transform him into an established force on the global dance scene.

Famously, it was Loco Dice and Desolat that gave Guti his big break. After licensing one of Guti‘s tracks for his NRK mix The Lab 01, the German DJ requested he send him some more music. All of what Guti sent Dice loved, and in 2008 Guti was invited to Europe to join team Desolat (tINI, Livio & Roby, Martin Buttrich). Without a moment‘s hesitation, he packed his bags and dived head-first into his new life, playing live and supporting Dice at clubs and festivals the world over. He had been making house and techno for barely 12 months.In 2008 he settled in Berlin, where he shared a flat with a young Seth Troxler and Ryan Crosson.
