Carlo Lio & Nathan Barato
Carlo Lio’s discography has exploded ever since his remix of Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann‘s track “Diablo” released. He has been featured on labels like SCI+TEC, Bedrock Records, and Intec Digital and collaborated with artists like DJ Sneak, Carl Cox and Nicole Moudaber. Nathan Barato’s success in the electronic scene has been credited to his diversity in funky techno and 90’s garage samples. He’s played at venues like CODA Nightclub (Toronto) and Fabric (London) and has been on Festival lineups for BPM (Mexico) and Ultra Miami. Together, the two artists have recently released their single “Ghetto Drums” on Rawthentic Records. This is a track you can expect to hear during their back-to-back set at Electric Island!

Originally from Puerto Rico, Sneak came to Chicago with his family in the 80’s and naturally gravitated towards house music and graffiti art in his younger years. In the late 80’s, most of DJ Sneak’s inspiration and local talent had left the city for the East Coast. In 1992, Cajmere aka Green Velvet founded Cajual Records in order to regain momentum in the electronic scene. With several features on Cajmere’s sister label Relief Records, they both aided in the resurrection of house music during that era. Sneak has played at massive events such as Time Warp Brasil, Audio Farm Festival and Lost Social Festival. With his return to Toronto at the Moog Stage, Electric Island will be an event to remember.
