DT640 – Nathan Barato


Born out of the Toronto underground clubbing scene, Nathan Barato holds a firm place as one of the most sought after names in the industry. Masterfully blending house and techno, his unmistakable sound has opened doors to residencies with Music On and Paradise as well as securing bookings at a long list of top clubs across the globe. His no holds barred attitude to production has seen him drop dynamite releases on a diverse range of prestigious labels including Hot Creations, Hottrax, Relief, Saved Records and many more. Yet, Nathan still finds time to spearhead his own imprint RAWthentic alongside Carlo Lio, signing heavy-hitting records with a unique gritty edge.

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 – CLICK HERE to get the album.

Today, Nathan joins the Podcast series for the first time with 60minutes of straight up fire – Listen to it below, on Spotify or iTunes here!

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A podcast that is actually a DJ set by me. 

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
The one with the kick, bass, clap, hi hats and sick vocals too bro.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Terry Black’s Barbecue Chipotle Mustard Hot Sauce.

What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
I mean, I’m very lucky I get to play a ton of parties that are so fun. So, it feels wrong to say one party is better than another but a recent gig at Fabrik in Madrid comes to mind because I got to play 135 BPM techno which is a departure for me for sure. It made me rigid the whole way through.

What have you got coming up?
Up next is my album Past Forward dropping on Hot Creations on March 29th. Buy it or else me and you aren’t friends.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Yes. Hey, you readers. Thanks for taking the time to listen or dance to my music. It really does mean so much to me that you guys would even take 40 seconds to read a word about me. I love you more than Trump loves to lie.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
