Using a combination of organic instrumentation, analogue synthesizers and punchy four-to-the-floor drums, the duo delivers a masterful club-focused interpretation of Monolink’s introspective original.

Today, Gui Boratto shares his top ten tracks, the tunes that inspire him the most today.
This is one of those songs that you can listen to more than a thousand times and you will always love.
I remember when I first bought the Black Celebration album. When I listened to Fly On The Windscreen, I got absolutely petrified. Definitely one of my fave Depeche Mode songs.
After getting a bit tired of bass, drums and guitars, I started to listen to some post punk bands like Depeche, New Order, etc. And finally I’ve got “First Last and Always” on my hand. It’s one of my all time favorite albums, including Marian, Walk Away and others. Black Planet influenced me a lot!
This song belongs to another impeccable and one of all time fav albums, “Upstairs At Eric´s”.
When I was 15, I went to a club and the DJ put this song. I will never forget listening to 808 drums like that. I was absolutely blown away.
I love Piazzolla. Everything he did. Pure genius. I don’t believe there’s anyone in the world that can dislike this song.
Another of my fav post punk bands. Always been a huge fan of Siouxsie Sioux. Cities In Dust is a very underrated song in my opinion.
Probably my favorite song from New Order. Such a great composition. I still doubt that this one was composed by them :-) …hehehe…. I’m kidding. But it’s a very sophisticated composition for a 3 chord song band, right?
My favorite Brazilian composer, and my favorite Brazilian song. Maybe one of the most important songs from my country. It’s a MUST!
I have a strong relationship with this song in particular. I’ve been trying to reproduce the synth bass, made from a KORG MS-20. I’ve bought my MS because of this song. Another MUST for the electronic music lovers.
