Pentagram is Boratto's first album in four years, but it sounds like his time has been well spent. Expertly produced and crafted, it is also the Brazilian producer's most diverse release. It moves in style from the low slung electronic disco of "The Walker" into the live drums and guitar of "The Black Bookshelf" and the smart dance pop of "Overload", which features Luciana Villanova on vocals. Of course these could all be signs that Boratto has grown up and got serious - after all '"Forgotten" sounds like an adept take on punk funk and he veers into neo-classical on the sweeping strings and keys of "Scene 2". However, this album demonstrates that he is still capable of delivering the kind of spine tingling trance he made his name with, as the hands in the air trance-techno of "Alcazar" so effortlessly reminds us.
