Barrientos is a 24 year old DJ and producer hailing from Glasgow, Scotland.
Born in America, raised by Chilean and English parents and growing up in Glasgow; different styles and cultures of music became an essential part of his life – eventually making the transition from classical music into electronic music during his years in university.
Since then he has been picked up by Glasgow Underground and his first release was a remix of the legendary track ‘Bring U Up’ by Romanthony which received critical acclaim from Mixmag and well-respected DJs such as Junior Sanchez, Mark E and Mood II Swing. The remix was also released on Defected Records Bargrooves Deluxe 2013 compilation by Andy Daniells.
Subsequent remixes of Walker & Royce and Visitor have lead onto Barrientos being described as “fast becoming a name to watch for filling the playlists of young guns Russ Chimes & Grum as well as entertaining more established DJs like Phonique. Following his much played remix for Romanthony he adds hypnotic reworks for both Visitor and Walker & Royce in his typical floor-filling style.”
