Podcast 197: Nathan Barato B2b De la Swing – Elrow At Amnesia
3 hours recorded live mix on Elrow at Amnesia Ibiza. Saturday, September 9th 2017.
With his roots in the Toronto after-hours circuit and a profile that has since seen him smash premiere international platforms across the globe, Nathan Barato’s carved out a reputation as not only one of the most playable producers in dance music, but amongst its most prolific DJs as well.
In other words, Nathan Barato isn’t just the guy being invited to play all the big parties, he’s the guy everyone else on the bill is spinning too. Whether it was Marco Carola first rinsing Nathan’s 2012 hit “Hard Werq” to worldwide audiences just months before asking him to join the Music On roster, or Jamie Jones deeming Nathan a new star at the Hot Creations camp while making this year’s ‘Wobble Talk’ EP a mainstay in his superstar sets… the T.O. native has skyrocketed to international prominence as a well-respected and sought after name.
Many credit Nathan’s success to his genre diversity. His eclectic sound infuses many styles and has been recognized as one where the likes of 90's garage get sampled against the backdrop of funky techno. As a result, Nathan’s music is being released on some of the most prestigious imprints in the industry, including the aforementioned Hot Creations and spinoff Hottrax, as well as Rekids, Cajual, Saved Records, MOOD, and of course, his very own Roots And Wings label.
As Nathan Barato keeps on turning industry eyes and ears in his direction, he continues to get booked at some of the most vaunted events and clubs around the world, from festivals like BPM (Playa Del Carmen, Mexico), Ultra (Miami, USA), and We Are (London, UK), to venues that include Womb (Tokyo, Japan), Fabric (London, UK), WHP (Manchester, UK), Stereo (Montreal, Canada), Coda (Toronto, Canada), Output (New York, USA), Sound (Los Angeles, USA), Club Space (Miami, USA), Barn (Modena, Italy), DC10 (Ibiza, Spain), Amnesia (Ibiza, Spain), and more.
This upcoming summer plans to be another busy one for the in-demand selector, especially in Ibiza, where Nathan’s time on the island will be highlighted by a much anticipated residency at Jamie Jones’ powerhouse Paradise jam at DC10, 3 gigs at Space's Do Not Sleep gathering, his return to Marco Carola’s Music On at Amnesia, and that's just the beginning. You don’t want to miss it!
