Nathan Barato announces his debut LP ‘Past Forward’


Hot Creations get set to release an album on 29th March from label favourite, Toronto based DJ and producer Nathan Barato. Stepping away from his usual sound, Barato brings with him an old-school, energetic bounce with ten-tracker, inviting some top names to join him for the ride.

“Past Forward is about taking musical influences from my past coming up as a young DJ…and bringing them forward into my own sound. It’s been an incredible experience working on this album and to be releasing it on Hot Creations has given me the space and freedom to create something that is a departure from what I’m typically known for. I’m so proud and really excited for it’s release!”  Nathan Barato
