We’ve been following this guy for quite some time now and we must admit everything he puts his hand on turns to gold. Amazing productions, the best edits and an amazing taste. Bottin is one of our favorite disco producers and djs, so we are extremely happy to present you a lsd faze session with the italo master.
My name is Bottin but you might know me as Guglielmo (that is if you went to school with me or you are my mom). I was born in Italy and grew up in Italy, except for a year or so in Canada. When I was a child my idol was Japanese superhero Megaloman and Duran Duran, because they both had great looks and hooks. When I was 20, I started making music in the studio. It was then when I realised that I no longer needed to be in a band to have a rhythm section and decided to not be in a band anymore.. Since then I have release a couple of album, a dozen singles and a way too many remixes and re-edits.
One of my best gigs I played was on the Sugarloaf in Rio De Janeiro. It was so much fun and so much adrenaline to play after Jorge Ben! and the only way to get to the party was through a cable car.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Steely Dan. I loved to see them play in Italy for their very first time.
Now I live in Venice with humidity and pigeons. In my house you can find way too many vintage lamps and a huge Vietnamese buddhist flag and my refrigerator is usually full with air and white wine.. I enjoy showing friends my secret spots and taking them around Venice a lot. I can spend hours waiting at airports without complaining.. One of my favorite places to visit is Ibiza, because I’ve lived there for a while and I miss it and my friends there.
On weekdays I go to the studio and pretend to be working and on weekends I usually go to clubs and pretend to be working.
My favorite song at the moment is Uptown by Prince. A film I watched lately and really liked was Mood Indigo by Michel Gondry. The last series I watched and loved was I try to stay away from Series. On The Air by Lynch was really good though..
I am very inspired by spending time in the wilderness or out at sea.. My dream is to never wake up.. My worst nightmare is I don’t have any..
I love cats and hate people who pull their polo collars up.
I am addicted to getting addictions that fade out fast so to make space for new ones. I just cannot stop using punctuation when I type; . , :.
I get totally fucked up, when I get addicted to somebody.. The next day I need to run.
Local Suicide reminds me of not dying..
Tomorrow I will go sailing. Next month it’s too far to think of. Next year too close by. In 10 years I hope not have any expectations.
If I wasn’t a musician, I would be a photographer.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, that doesn’t yet exist would have the main role, because I would direct it. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be not a turn-on..
If I was a car, I would be a white Fiat Panda (the old model). If I was an animal, I would be a cat. If I was a drug I would be red wine. If I was an invention, I would be useless but fun to use.. If I was an object, I would be a useless but cool to own. If I could date myself, I would not..
If I could play with anyone it would be short. I would like to collaborate with dead people.
If I had only one wish, it would be Vasilij Kandinskij.
I would never own or wear white socks, because you know it..
My word of advice to the reader would be to get a good book!
