B4ZT0N (Born Barry Carlton Reid) is a DJ/Producer/Remixer originally from Glasgow, Britain (UK).
B4ZT0N started DJing professionally back in 2001 as the main resident of “House @ Club Buddha” playing alongside established ....and legendary.... DJs and producers such as Steve McCreery and Johnny Whoop. Spinning records as plain old Barry Reid at Club Buddha, his sets there were anything but plain. Making a name for himself as “the bangin’ basscutter”, he exploited his unique mixing skills to fuse many genres in a seamless, bouncy manner.
After establishing his name in the local underground techno scene, Barry shunned the blossoming limelight that was then beginning to shine on him, instead deciding to take his style in a whole new direction, and he began experimenting with a darker, more twisted style of techno under the guise of “Mr. Blunt”.
Mr. Blunt, then went on to become chief resident at Shotgun Boogie@Blackfriars Basement in Glasgow’s ‘trendy’ Candleriggs area, headlining, and guesting, in several other events there along with critically acclaimed UK electro and techno producers like Jerome Hill, Michael Forshaw and Bass Invaders.
Mr. Blunt’s cutting edge approach to dance music led him across 2 continents where he spent some time as a main player in South-East Asia’s “Skillus Squadion” collective, headlining the 2009 Cermin Beach New Year’s Festival in Sumatra as well as being the twice weekly resident at Shoot in Medan, Indonesia.
After gaining such a reputable accolade in both Europe and Asia as a pioneer and promoter of various sounds, Mr. Blunt went under another reinvention, exploring the musical tastes of traditional Oriental sounds and fusing it with his own brand of house and techno. Ergo the metamorphosis was complete, and B4ZT0N was born.
B4ZT0N took some time out from DJing to concentrate solely on his production work, and as well as composing and producing his own tracks, he has remixed songs by other artists such as Ben Sims, Bart Skils, Robert Hood, Skrillex, deadmau5, The Prodigy, Donna Summer, Björk, and Michael Jackson to name but a few.
Always working hard on the decks to ensure the party is constantly bouncing, B4ZT0N's live sets are famed for being energetic and upbeat.
B4ZT0N currently spends his time guesting at various events around South-East Asia, primarily in Jakarta and Bali.
