Speaking of house and artists that have defined the scene in the Northern Adriatic, you can’t pass Paolo Barbaro, a DJ, producer and through the 90s owner of then very important record shop Dance All Day, who has influenced generations of peers and music lovers on the four-border area between Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria. After more than 30 years behind the decks and dedicating his life to club music, Paolo continues to be a much sought-after DJ in one of the World’s hottest festival regions, famous for always delivering it be it with his vanguard sets or classic house selection.
Italian by blood but a true man of the world, Paolo is renowned as one of the pioneers and leaders of regional electronic music scene. He’s a regular at DJ Mag Top 100 clubs from Magazini Generali and Il Muretto to Peter Pan, he held residencies at Ambasada Gavioli and Byblos and did countless of gigs at big room and underground clubs, boat parties and festivals. He provides soundtracks for fashion shows and art exhibitions and he did a special limited edition compilation for the prestigious Illy Caffé brand. He was a resident at Pacha Sharm el Sheikh for two years, he’s regular in Ibiza, but since Croatia became the global party hotspots Paolo spends most of the summers at Croatian, Slovenian and Italian coast.
Being in the game since the 80s he has developed a great taste and waste knowledge of music, has a collection of classic house vinyl, but most of all he’s a great selector who knows exactly which track to drop at a certain point of the party to create the best energy on the dancefloor. “I am a dance DJ. I’m known as a house artist, but I don’t mind mixing techno or tech-house tracks in my sets if they fit in and makes people dance.” Last but not least, his passion for music is insatiable as he preserves that fresh and insatiable curiosity which pushes him to a constant search of those little music gems everyone is so keen to hear in his sets.
Paolo’s career officially began in 1984 but he started buying records even before. “In the early 80s I started working on a radio station as a technician and soon after I won one of the first DJ competitions it really took off.” In the early 90s he entered then fresh club & festival scene in Slovenia and Croatia as a made artists. He was the first resident of Ambasada Gavioli, played eight MTV Valkana Beach Festivals and was important member of regional rave movement, as a promoter of soulful electronic music in predominately techno influenced scene.
While younger audience refer to him as that tattooed guy with minimalistic specs who plays great house, most of DJs in the region who were active in the mid 90s, knew Paolo also as a music dealer. For over a decade he ran a record shop Dance All Day in Monfalcone that was the main source of house vinyl for the region and as a selector of titles sold there and a mentor to young colleagues he had strong influence on the taste of DJs and audience in the region. “Every week I did a trip to Milan where I hand picked music for my regular clients as I knew exactly which tunes would fit in their sets,” he remembers.
In the beginning of the Millennium he also dedicated himself to music production, releasing his tunes on Hed Kandi, Peppermint Jam, Ministry of Sound, Universal and some smaller labels. He also collaborated with various international musicians and singers as well as produced videos (‘Fuel Your Life’ went to #4 on MTV Dancefloor Chart), which have further strengthened his place. “Nowadays I also enjoy producing for other artists and sharing my knowledge with younger artists, so I’ve also become official Steinberg’s Cubase Tutor.” Sure, why stop now after he’s already hooked on house tens of thousands of artists and music lovers in his home regio.
