Guglielmo Bottin (Padua, 1977) is an artist, producer and sound designer based in Venice, Italy.

After graduating in Psychology of Music at the University of Padua,
he was selected as creative consultant to the sound and music department of Fabrica,
the Benetton communication research center created by Oliviero Toscani.

Before moving to the forefront of the contemporary electronic scene with seminal
releases on BearFunk (UK), Italians Do It Better (Usa) and Eskimo (Belgium)
he has worked as producer, arranger and remixer for major Italian and international
artists (such as Lucio Dalla, Rettore, Chambao)

Bottin has toured in more than 30 countries, fom the Americas to Australia,
from Europe to Asia, from Berlin underground events to renowned parties in Ibiza.
He curated several music events for the Biennale of Contemporary Dance in Venice and
carried out sound design at the 51st Biennale of Contemporary Arts (Spanish Pavilion byi Muntadas).

His sets are eclectic, unpredictable journeys into space disco, dark tribal house and rare gems
from the past, all reworked for the modern audience. A reckless blend of retro-futuristic sounds and
contemporary electronica that always sets the dance floor on fire.

– Italians don't necessarily do it better. But William Bottin makes a pretty good case (Pitchfork, US)
