After putting the spotlight on Brazilian electronic music with his Magnum Vol. 1 comp back in 2016, Gui Boratto has readied a new solo effort of his own.

Titled Pentagram, the producer’s latest arrives through Kompakt on June 15 and marks the official follow-up to 2014’s Abaporu. Twelve tracks in length, the album is said to demonstrate a leap forward in Boratto’s production and creative progression, including pop-friendly structures and the techno he built his name on.

A first taste of the record arrives with “Forgive Me,” which you can hear in the player below. As he explained in a press release, the track is a sister composition to its preceding album cut “Forgotten.”

“I was going into two different directions,” he recalled, “the typical ‘indie-electronic-rock’ Boratto kind of production like ‘It’s Majik’ or ‘Like You’ and a much more techno approach. I decided to split them into two twin sister songs. When I play live I always put these two songs together.”
