Misstress Barbara CD 002
Born under the Sagittarius sign in Sicily, Italy, in 1975, Misstress Barbara (4 "s" as a word game between miss and stress) moved to Montreal at age 8, where she lives since. She holds a degree in Communication Studies, specialized in Cinema, and a glider and cessna plane license. Her creative involvement with music began when she picked up the drums at the age of 12 and started playing in bands. For the next seven years she was absorbed by classic rock, punk, and all the hard music of the time.
She plans on running two labels, her techno label Relentless established in 1999 and a house one for her Barbara Brown projects, unnamed for the moment but scheduled for late 2000. They will have different names but will be coming from the same mother, her company called Energia Productions. She also plans on doing music for films, video games and more radio oriented remix projects. Those are her plans so far, but this is only the tip of the iceberg as her future is looking very bright and her DJ schedule is constantly moving forward, as well as her studio work which promises to bring us more of the cutting edge music she is known for.
She likes to describe her main style as "drummy funky pumpin’ techno" and her most important musical influences come from the shuffling of Jazz and from the repetitive grooves of Latin music. Regardless of the influences her typical hard beats have always been the driving force in her music and have always come first. These elements are immediately recognizable in her productions, yet she can be very different from one production to another but never lose the thread between shifts in sound or style. This is also true for the records she chooses to play and how she builds her full-tilt nights.
