About the course

Nathan Barato has established himself among one of the most respected producers as well as one of the most prolific DJs in the world.  Whether it was Marco Carola first championing Nathan’s 2012 hit “Hard Werq” which ultimately led to Nathan joining the Music On roster, or Jamie Jones deeming Nathan a new star while making Nathan’s ‘Wobble Talk’ a staple in the Hot Creations label camp.  The Toronto native has skyrocketed to international DJ prominence all the while remaining a well-respected and sought after producer.

Many credit Nathan’s success to his genre diversity. His eclectic sound infuses many styles and has been recognized as one where the likes of 90's garage get sampled against the backdrop of funky techno. As a result, Nathan’s music is being released on some of the most prestigious imprints in the industry, including the aforementioned Hot Creations and spinoff Hottrax, as well as Rekids, Cajual, Saved Records, MOOD, and of course, his very own Rawthentic Music label alongside his partner Carlo Lio.

As a touring DJ, Nathan is a regular at events, clubs and festivals around the world including BPM (Playa Del Carmen, Mexico), Ultra (Miami, USA), and We Are (London, UK), to venues that include Womb (Tokyo, Japan), Fabric (London, UK), WHP (Manchester, UK), Stereo (Montreal, Canada), Coda (Toronto, Canada), Output (New York, USA), Sound (Los Angeles, USA), Club Space (Miami, USA), Barn (Modena, Italy), DC10 (Ibiza, Spain), Amnesia (Ibiza, Spain), and more.

In his first-ever masterclass for FaderPro, Nathan puts on display his signature production style using a stock Ableton rig and demonstrates how anyone can utilize the DAW, without any 3rd party plug-ins, and get to a finished master production that is ready for the clubs, to shop to a label or BOTH!
