Toronto-based DJ/producer Nathan Barato is having the best year ever. After spending the summer as a resident DJ at Marco Carola’s Music On party in Ibiza (“I’ve learned that the Italians are so on point musically! They know their shit!”), he’s set to make his debut at London’s Fabric nightclub on November 15, playing Kaluki‘s Room 3 shindig along with Richy Ahmed, Pirate Copy and Pete Zorba.
“For me, it’s special that I get to play such an important club,” says Barato. “It’s going be a really dope night with all three rooms laying down great lineups, but to play with the Kaluki crew is really cool for me. Nick Yates and Lee Spence of Kaluki are great guys who I’ve known for a long time, and Richy Ahmed is a talent I look up to a lot.”
Barato first met the guys from Kaluki back in 2012 at Jamie Jones’ Paradise event at DC-10. “I ended up at a crazy villa after-party later in the morning. I knew no one there except Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow, until Nick Yates introduced himself with quite the intro. Ibiza is the best.”
Of his upcoming set at Fabric he says, “I’m thinking to go straight heat, top to bottom, but I’m always ready to throw a few curve balls at the crowd. We’ll see how the vibe goes.”
Having just released “Everytime I See You” featuring vocals by Room 303 — which sports remixes by Volkoder and Nicole Moudaber — on Hot Creations last week, Barato’s milestone gig comes during a particularly productive and satisfying period of his life.
“I have to say that I’m loving life these days,” he beams. “Making music everyday, traveling the world playing great gigs, I’m deeply in love with my lady, I have an amazing inspiring family, and I’m healthy. I’m not sure what the best thing is, but I’m very happy.”
