Let's try to show people what good taste is

D.O.C. RECORDS IS AN INDEPENDENT RECORD LABEL, DISTRIBUTED BY KOMPAKT. FOUNDED IN 2013 AND OPERATED BY BRAZILIAN ARCHITECT AND MUSIC PRODUCER GUI BORATTO.

Why D.O.C.?

The name is a reference to "Denominazione di Origine Controllata" or D.O.C., used for certifying wine, cheese and other types of food, which follow a set of rules and regulations and are produced in specific geographical areas. In this case, it is about music.

To Gui, more important than style, arrangement or production, it is the music itself and its relation between harmony and melody. Thus, the intent to create a platform focused on launching quality, timeless music, avant garde music, rhetorical and with a well defined and efficient language and expression, regardless of its shell. Gui simply believes in good and bad taste.

INTRODUCING: JEROEN HOFER AKA MELON. NOT YOUR AVERAGE HUMAN BEING. SOMETHING THAT BECOMES OBVIOUS THE SECOND HE ENTERS THE ROOM – A BEAMING, LARGER THAN LIFE PERSONALITY THAT CANNOT POSSIBLY BE IGNORED. FLAIR AND CHARISMA HAVE NEVER HURT ANYONE IN THIS BUSINESS.

MELON IS A NATURAL ARTIST, OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, HE HAS MANAGED TO CREATE A HIGH PRODUCTION PROFILE

MELON IS A NATURAL ARTIST, A DJ’S DJ ...

A TRANSVERSE FLUTIST IS AN ARGUABLY RARE SIGHT IN ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC, BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY THING SETTING APART TRAINED INSTRUMENTALIST AND UPCOMING PRODUCER L_CIO. 

HAVING BECOME KNOWN TO A WIDER AUDIENCE THANKS TO HIS COLLABORATIONS WITH FLOOR-SAVVY ARTISTS LIKE PORTABLE OR PATRICE BÄUMEL, THE SAO PAULO NATIVE DOESN'T ASPIRE TO BE A DJ, BUT INSTEAD DELVES DEEPER INTO LIVE PERFORMANCE IN A CLUB CONTEXT.

RESIDENT ADVISOR

MIXHELL IS A NEW AND EXCITING COLLABORATION WHICH AIMS TO FUSE TOGETHER THE BEST AND MOST UPLIFTING ELEMENTS OF THE ROCK AND ELECTRONICA SCENES TO CREATE A "ROCK-TRONICA” EFFECT, WITH THIS IN MIND, IGGOR AND WIFE LAIMA HAVE MOVED THE PROJECT FROM ITS CREATIVE HOME IN THE STUDIO TO THE STAGE WHERE IT HAS BECOME A DJ PROJECT WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY LIVE ELEMENT.

THE SETS AIM TO REIGNITE THE PASSION FOR DISCO-PUNK AND OLD SCHOOL HIP HOP.

THE DUO BLENDS OLD AND NEW, TAKING THE BEST ELEMENTS OF BOTH DANCE, ELECTRONICA AND ROCK TO CREATE A FRESH AND EXCITING SOUND.

EXCLAIM

SHADOW MOVEMENT IS A PROJECT WHICH STARTED IN 2012.
AFTER WORKING AS SOLO ARTISTS, BOTH RAFAEL AND RAUL DECIDED TO SHARE THEIR IDEAS IN A NEW EXPERIENCE.
FROM HOUSE TO TECHNO, AT THIS STAGE THEY SEEK TO TAKE THEIR MUSIC, LOADED WITH MELODY AND BREAKTHROUGH CONTENT, TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

AFTER THEIR FIRST E.P. "I.D", WHICH WAS A SMASH HIT ON THE TECHNO DANCEFLOORS, SHADOW MOVEMENT RELEASED THEIR UNIQUE SECOND SINGLE CALLED "WHALES - (PART I & II)".

THEY ARE PREPARING THEIR THIRD RELEASE, TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON.

A WICKED MUSIC!

GUI BORATTO

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.

AND IT WAS INDEED GUI WHO HEARD IT FIRST, DECIDING THAT NOT ONLY THIS WAS MUSIC HE’D LOVE TO SEE RELEASED, BUT ALSO A TALENTED DUO HE ABSOLUTELY WANTED TO WORK WITH, BECOMING THEIR MANAGER AND COLLABORATOR IN THE PROCESS.

THEY ARE THE FIRST ARTISTS TO BE SIGNED ON GUI BORATTO'S LABEL OUTFIT

THEY JUST SOUND DIFFERENT AND BEAUTIFUL. REAL MUSICIANS.
