After the recent launch of Decoded Magazine into the Australian market, we return in a monthly series with our good friends at Dragonfruit with Decoded & Friends.
Over the course of 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. Keeping audiences 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 for.
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. He’s hypnotized the dance floors of WeLove (Sydney Australia), WMC (Miami), Kingdom Nightclub (Austin),The BPM Festival (Mexico), CODA (Toronto), Monarch (San Francisco), Avalon (Los Angeles), Space (Miami), Tree House (Miami), Vertigo (Costa Rica), The Palms(Guatamala)The End Up (San Francisco), Spin (San Diego), Jet Lounge (Houston), Ethics (Austin), Quality Control (Salt Lake City), Tonic(Reno), Nocturnal (San Francisco) and dozens of underground parties across North and Central America.
DJing in his hometown, curating Soirée together with his close mate Jengis Kose which pushes refined house and techno in the Brisbane area, as well as being apart of IWTFA which is a techno collective in Brisbane has seen Jamie Grenenger evolve into a solid presence in the small but thriving Brisbane electronic music scene bringing artist such as Artefakt, Antigone, Cleric, Trevino aka Marcus Intalex, Robbie Lowe , CMT, Shlomo, AWB, Lateral, Simon Slieker and Eric Volta.
Jamie has recently had the opportunity to support brilliant house and techno acts such as Shlomo, AWB, Antigone, Artefakt, Cleric, Truncate, Trinity, Ripperton, Yokoo, Robag Wruhme, Loco & Jam, Claire Morgan and DJ Deep; as well as be a part of the bill at select underground nights in Brisbane. These bookings have given Jamie the ability to define his sound without having to pare back his creativity with his musical selections.
Jamie’s influences stem from his love of progressive house and techno and through these channels, he organically blends melodic layers, heart thumping rolling techno utilising up to 3 CDJs to weave in and out of tracks to create his own signature sound and style of mixing. It’s a combination that’s always sure to engage the audience and keep them dancing but he is never one for predictability and will always keep them guessing, always expect the unexpected.
