For the first in the series of SIDEXSIDE’s re-launch we have recruited two of Desolat’s most hyped about artists in tINI and Guti.  As a label Desolat has built up a reputation for releasing ground breaking techno and house, so we thought it would be only fitting for two of it’s acts to be paired SIDEXSIDE. This showcase will feature a 1-hour live set from Guti, whilst tINI will provide an extended set, taking you through a journey of experimental house and techno, that will cover every corner and crossover.


In only a few years tINI has risen to being one of Germany’s most highly acclaimed female producers across the house and techno scene.  Her first DJ adventures were through the hip hop scence, but with a deep passion for grunge, wave and new romantics, it was when she first discovered upon Moodymann’s “Amerika”, that her style became more electronic.  In 2003 she started to make an impact in the local clubs of her hometown Munich, and before long she was holding down residencies across the rest of Europe.

By 2008 she had joined the Desolat family, after she caught the attention of Loco Dice when playing at some of his parties. It’s her ability in intuitively know how to enchant a crowd during one of her peak time sets, combined with her distinctive sound that has sealed her reputation. Constantly pushing the tech funk sound forward, the most significant highlight of her unique career was when she released her debut album, ‘Tessa’ on Desolat last autumn.

Guti (live)

It 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. And having grown up with music, it didn’t take long before he was banging out several tracks a day. A classically-trained jazz virtuoso and national rock ‘n’ roll hero in Argentina, Guti was born in an exceptionally musical family, which included orchestra directors, saxophone players and pianists. Soaking up his father’s singing up from a young age he is heavily influenced by the folk music of Argentina, which to him is both incredibly intricate and perfectly simple.

In 2010 Guti moved to Düsseldorf to settle down in the studio to concentrate on his techno and house projects. The result was ‘Patio de juegos’ his stunning debut album released on Desolat. Since then the Latin-Düsseldorfer is taking the world by storm, with fulminate live sets and appearances on labels such as Defected (with Luca Bacchetti) and Cadenza (with Cesar Merveille). Although currently based in Düsseldorf, it’s unlikely he will ever leave behind the spirit of the Latin America he knows. “I love Buenos Aires. It’s a huge city... a huge jungle. Really fast, really crazy, dirty, messy. But really creative: amazing musicians. That happens with all the poor countries. We don’t have money, so we play music. We write books.”
