The definition of music is different for each listener. For some it is an expression of feelings, for others it reduces stress and gives mental peace but for the American DJ and electronic music producer Gual, music is to entertain. People listen to music to elevate their mood and just enjoy it without any other thoughts or feelings. With the same thought in mind, Gual has released his latest track “Boogie Oogie Oogie”, an upbeat dance number perfectly fusing the elements of funk and EDM.
Gual, whose full name is Guy Gualtieri, started his interaction with music way back in the 1980s when he was a teenager. He would play guitar in local rock bands and simultaneously produce his own music using a Korg Poly-800 synthesizer and a Panasonic dual cassette boom box by adding a supplementary layer of music in recordings. During this time, he was experimenting, generating sounds, and trying to create his own style.
In the 1990s, his life changed after he bought a Korg M1 synthesizer, and thereon he began to create electronic music in different genres and styles, challenging himself as an artist and entertaining people.
He would spend his nights performing and stimulating crowds in the South of Florida and meanwhile earned masters degrees in engineering and business administration. He had gained the ability to meet the audience’s demand and play for them in real-time. He had performed at countless events and night clubs playing electronic instruments and amusing people with his innovative style.
After graduating from college, he developed his technical skills and played for different bands. He had even worked on NASA’s space shuttle program processing electronic vibration data and moved to South Florida.
His tracks “It’s Like That” and “Can You Feel It” are the best examples of his sound techniques creating magnetism with a wonderful fusion of melodies and flashy electro structures. His works on different genres like Funky House, EDM, and Nu-Disco resulting in creations of beautiful live sets. People are stunned by the sounds that he generates especially at parties and in clubs.
His inspiration comes from artists like Frankie Knuckles, James Brown, and Sammy Hagar. The audience can feel the essence of these artists in his music, video, and live performances.
All through his musical career, he had never gone after the latest trends while working with sounds and creating lyrics. His music has always been motivating, elevating, and joyous.
He had recently got his label, Miami Dance Records, a distribution agreement with Kobalt/AWAL.
He recalls as a child he would generate drum tracks by hand drumming on the back of his acoustic guitar, but now he is doing the same thing on an NI Maschine Studio.
A musician of few words he is successful in drawing audiences towards him. And now he is continuing to produce dance tracks, reaching new audiences, and meeting people who share his passion.
