Pentagram, the Brazilian producer's first LP since 2014, lands on Kompakt on June 15th. Boratto further explores the melodic, high-energy sound of his past records, drawing upon classic drum machines and his new Buchla modular synth. One track, "Overload," is a collaboration with Boratto's wife, Luciana Villanova, who was the vocalist on his biggest hit to date, 2007's "Beautiful Life."
Other tracks, the label says, are among the most nuanced of his career. "I think I've used more than 30 different snares, with different delays and reverbs," says Boratto about the title track. "The whole song is alive."
The album tour stops off at District 8 on Friday June 29th.
