Barish is a dedicated music lover, and an established dj. His passion for music began with his long escapades into the world of R'n'b and Soul at a very early age. While studying architectural engineering at the University of Hartford, his mad nights during the early times of Twilo made him fall in love with electronic music and its performance.
After graduation, he moved to New York for business opportunities and that's where his dj'ing career took off. After winning a mixing competition held by New York City’s DJ Mark Divine (Sound Factory), Barish secured himself two local weekly residencies at the Leopard Lounge and Liquids sharing the booth respectively with Mark Divine (D3) and Julio Terra (MuzakTherapy).
After returning to his native country , Barish quickly became a resident at Turkey’s most prestigious clubs such as Crystal, Nuclub and Underground. During this time Barish has become one of the principal member DJs of the highly regarded “Together” crew notably comprising international house talents such as Yunus Guvenen, Subsky, & Muzo B. His evergrowing ‘Wet’n’Juicee’ nights at NuClub had been a landmark for house music lovers in the past few years and his recent residencies at Club Clinic and Multidance has been making a great impact, not to mention his opening performance for François K at Istanbul’s Surmeli, an extended set at Dinamo’s Radar Live Festival and his very recent performance at Ultra Festival After Party in Miami Music Conference with names such as Paul Oakenfold and Hernan Cattaneo.
Barish has been DJ’ing with a pious dedication since early 2000 and his hard work is felt in his key mixing abilities and exceptional track selection. He is known by his friends as one of the most disciplined and motivated Dj in the country, nothing can tear him apart from the booth not even a broken leg! His blend of unique sounds, unprejudiced genre defying variations and rather hypnotic approach has caught the attention of IDJ magazine, which commented his set with great review in the Readers’ Mixes Section on May 2003 issue. Barish has started to host for 34 BPM shows on the internet’s leading dance broadcast Proton Radio after his brilliant guest mixes and his sets also appeared on selected radio servers such as Mercurysessions, Musicserver.uk, Frisky, etc.
