DT781 – Carlo Lio


If music is the Universal language then Toronto Native, Carlo Lio is surely multilingual. It is this universal appeal that has allowed Carlo to speak to so many people without ever having to say a word. His ability to capture sounds and emit them so expressively is a gift. Music has always been a priority in Carlo’s life; anyone who witnesses him gracing the decks can attest to this. Carlo can turn a careful observer into a dancer through the raw emotion and passion in his music. Music is a language; it is a means of connectivity, intimacy and communication and Carlo has brilliantly captured and shared this with his fans.

As a DJ, producer: & businessman. His continued efforts both in and out of the booth have paid off. Teaming up with studio partner Nathan Barato to create Rawthentic Music, Carlo has been pounding out numerous quality hits which have received plenty of local & International support. His unique signature style that’s driven by a relentless, sexy, hypnotic, techy groove is sure to leave you mesmerized.

Carlo has so instinctively tapped into that ‘human experience’ that millions of club goers have sought after and has taken so many on a journey into sound. With his flawless and imaginative mixing and his mind-blowing programming, Carlo preaches a gospel of repetitive beats. His fast, deep pulsing tech-house, or groovy, chuggy minimal are inspirational and he credits his latest sound to his most current influences; Dubfire, Marco Carola, Carl Cox and Loco Dice.

Carlo emulates great confidence and is a strong visionary and leader in Toronto’s club culture. If you have a yearning hunger for the beat, just open wide; Carlo will satisfy your mind, body and soul and leave you salivating for more.

Today, he joins on the podcast for the first time. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here. He plays for Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Ultra Music Festival will make its celebrated return to the iconic Bayfront Park from March 25 – 27, 2022

What’s your personal favorite track on it?
I would have to say a new track of mine with my buddy Carabetta—we have high hopes for it this summer! 

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Making sure I always maintain the groove and program it properly.

Tell us about your next EP. 
My next EP is a collab with my buddy Boris, and will be released through Adam Beyer’s Truesoul label. It comes out March 4. It’s super heavy! 

What have you got coming up? 
I have an edible release on the Eats Everything label. I have the “Cuba Libre” single on my label, Rawthentic. I have an EP coming on Truncate, as well as another EP on my other label, ON EDGE SOCIETY. Lotta stuff ahead. 

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I just hope you all enjoy the mix as much as I had making it! And I look forward to seeing everyone at Ultra soon.

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.
