Last summer, a stunning single called Wish (FM X / Wish 001) made quite a splash in the international techno community. It was released on a imited edition picturevinyl only and delighted listeners worldwide with its intimate melodies, lush harmonies and organic undertones. Composed in memory of Muddy Waters, the
bluesman that electrified the Delta blues, it came from the hands of ELEKFANTZ, a project completely unknown to most floor hounds: speculations about the originators ran rampant and the name Gui Boratto was brought forward more than once.
Now, the curtain is ifted with DIGGIN ON YOU on the new Kompakt-distributed label outfit D.O.C., revealing two incredibly gifted musicians: Daniel and Leo first met 20 years ago, when they played together in a blues band. Leo continued his carreer as a professional musician while Daniel started to discover a new musical path. The latter was born and bred at the electronic music temple in South America, later becoming a resident DJ and local hero, known as the right guy to prepare the dance floor and set up the right mood. Hes one of the finest DJs of the Brazilian new wave of electronic aficionados. Leo is a professional drummer, singer and composer since the age of 15. He played and recorded with some of the greatest artists in Brazil.
After two decades, they met up again and created Wish... and it was indeed Gui Boratto who heard it first, deciding that not only this was music hed love to see released, but also a talented duo he absolutely wanted to work with, becoming their manager and collaborator in the process. Thus, a new label was born: D.O.C., Guis very own label imprint. Sure enough, ELEKFANTZ were the first artists to be signed. "They just sound different and beautiful, Gui says, real musicians. The rest, as they say, is history.
