Sao Paulo / Sydney
Traveling with Thiago Guiselini is somewhat that is done with the emotion and energy that are reserved solely to some of the best moments of our brief sojourn in this plane. His sets are filled with the essential elements that turn a mere musical selection into a sonic narrative: fluidity, precision, that sharpened sensibility to dialogue with the dancers and, with their help, tack, darn and enmesh sets whose potency and permanence are their strongest singularity.
The passion that propels his efforts is of that seminal, fundamental, visceral kind, the very one that helped fostering this movement to which he devotes most of his talent: House Music. Be it as a DJ, creating experiences of unique depth and elegance, or as cultural agitator, through Soul.Set, the event that transformed the way people from his hometown, Sao Paulo, experienced and enjoyed dance music and the festivity that sustains it, Thiago has kept himself at the forefront of production and promotion of the musicality that he espoused from the early moments of his career.
Bringing to the Brasilian metropolis stalwarts of the genre, such as Ron Trent, Joe Claussell, Atjazz, Metro Area, Mark Farina, Mr Raoul K, DJ Spinna and likeminded artists to the public’s delight and acting as a proper host in musical terms, Thiago ended up as one of the main players in House Music’s recent renaissance in the country by introducing it to a younger generation of avid followers.
The same feeling of congregation, collective celebration, that feeling that is the music itself, regardless of who makes or dances to it, or simply enjoys it, is what drives him to keep on doing what he’s been doing so well. And it is exactly what he remains at dedicating himself, with the unbreakable constancy and consistency common to all those who made the history of this dancing institution.
