Patio de Juegos, which translates as Playground, is a wonderful multi-genre journey through the mind of an artist who is both on top of his game, and on the rise towards the stars. Lashings of his ever-present South American heritage infuse with incredibly intricate and perfectly simple house structures that give the whole album its almost child at play ethos that is rarely found in electronic music. Future club hits such as Wanna Be, with its nod to the historical upbeat lineage of house music, and All the Girls, with its chugging rhythm, trickling piano loops and erotic vocals sit effortlessly alongside more experimental and jazz inspired tracks such as the explorative Still here. Another fine example is Sun, with its deep bass line punctuated with the sun-soaked synths and summer high-hats that export listeners away to a warm utopia. Guti produces a number of tracks with high profile artists from both within and outside the DJ fraternity a sign of his increasing popularity within electronica, and also his innate ability to collaborate with more mainstream artists. This has resulted in Guti pushing his productions in new and exciting directions.Guy Gerber features on We Shall Overcome, with its rising synths complemented by a chunky beat that will ensure it features in many sets over the coming months. Visionquests Ryan Crosson lends a hand on No Promises which has resulted in a truly driving dancefloor groove. And My Whole Thing features Anthea Marie Nzekwu whose uplifting vocals accompany a dreamy chilled out beat.Berklee College of Music graduate, and Gutis long-time friend, Grünbox features on Miraloo an example of Gutis ability to collaborate with the worlds musical elite.Notably, and perhaps the biggest coup, is that of Daniel Melingo who features on Lucio El Anarquista. The Grammy nominated tango singer and worldrenowned musician is well known for his composition work on Pedro Almodóvars films, and he brings a rich musical education to a truly sublime track. Overall Guti gives up a beautiful mixture of tracks that bridge the space between the club and the living room with consummate ease. A breathtaking first album, which clearly demarcates the live performers ability and ambition for the coming years.
