Following the successful launch of SIDEXSIDE in 2012 we kick off 2013 with two of Desolat’s most hyped about artists tINI and Guti. As a label Desolat have built up a reputation for releasing some of the most ground breaking music, so we thought it would be only fitting for two of it’s leading acts to be paired SIDEXSIDE. This showcase will feature a live set from Guti and tINI will provide an extended set, taking you through a journey of experimental house and techno.
In only a few years tINI has risen to being one of Germany’s most highly acclaimed female producers. In 2008 she joined the Desolat family, after she caught the attention of Loco Dice when playing at some of the same parties. It’s her ability in intuitionally knowing how to enchant her crowd during igniting main-¬time sessions, combined with her distinctive sound that has made her reputation what it is today. Constantly pushing the tech funk sound forward, the most significant highlight of her unique career was when she released her debut album on Desolat last autumn.
In was in the studio of Latin Grammy-nominated producer and friend Leandro Martinez that Guti began experimenting with making house beats and singing on top. A classically-trained jazz virtuoso and national rock ‘n’ roll hero in Argentina, Guti was born into an exceptionally musical family, which included orchestra directors, saxophone players and pianists. In 2010 Guti moved to Düsseldorf to settle down in the studio to concentrate on his techno and house project. The result was “Patio de Juegos”, his stunning debut album released on Desolat, since then the Latin-Düsseldorfer has been taking the world by storm.
