The location was Sydney, Australia where an influential member of the techno society was born. Unbeknown to his homeland his skill set and musical prowess would be discovered over 20 years later in 1999 upon relocating to the United States and eventually in Austin, Texas. Here, in the live music capital of the world, industry protégé Christian Barbuto fully realized his creative ability and duty to the underground.
Over nearly 2 decades his ever-evolving sound remains loyal to the dark, bass-hungry attributes of techno. Watch in awe as Barbuto’s sets cast a spell upon the dance floor. Weaving crowds in and out between moments of deep, infectious groove to minimal modulation, he approaches each performance with intellect and vivacious energy. Audiences remain transfixed for hours upon end, rarely less than 3 or 4 channels of infectious techno groove circulating and spitting through various effects units creating some of the most explosive drops you will ever hear, Barbuto sets the bar for many to strive to reach.
This edge is exactly what has landed Barbuto on many of the industry’s most prestigious imprints including Tronic, Octopus, Transmit, Funk n’ Deep, Phobiq, Natura Viva and 43rd Degree Records among others as well as having been remixed by Enrico Sangiuliano & Spektre as well as having been on remix duty for Roland Clark, Durtysoxxx, Alberto Ruiz and many others.
