La Messe presents Barbuto
Things took off for Barbuto after his first release on Octopus Recordings having attracted the likes of Enrico Sangiuliano who eventually remixed his follow up EP Vanta Black. That same year Barbuto appeared in the pages of DJ Mag who came across a set of his from Coda in Toronto touting it as one of the best sets of the year. Since signing with Octopus labels Tronic, Phobiq, OFF, Unity and Transmit amongst others have released Barbuto’s music which attracted the attention of mainstay artists like, Spektre, Black Asteroid and Loco & Jam who all signed up for remix duty for Barbuto’s most premiere releases. On the receiving end of remix requests have come from label heads Fatima Haji for her Silver M label, Hollen, Filterheadz, Rafaelle Rizzi, Riot’s Frankyeffe and Kostas Maskalides to name a few.
Originally from Sydney however unbeknownst to his homeland his skill set and musical prowess would develop over 20 years later in 1999 upon relocating to the United States and eventually settling in Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. It was here where Christian Barbuto would fully realize his creative ability and refine his skill set in the dj booth which is where he is most comfortable and shines.
Over the course of nearly 2 decades his ever-evolving sound remains loyal to percussion and arpeggiated driven dance floor friendly techno. Watch in awe as Barbuto's sets cast a spell upon the dance floor.
