Paulo Júlio César a.k.a. DJ Barata was born in São Paulo’s northside and is a big vinyl collector. DJ Barata is the oldest of 3 brothers who are also DJ’s. Musically his uncle was his biggest influence because his uncle owned DJ equipment and used to play at parties in “Bairro Canindé”, SP. DJ Barata has eclectic taste in music like Rock, Hip Hop, Funk, Pop, & House Music.

While in high school DJ Barata used to spin at friends parties and “Bailinhos” (private club parties), where used he to play black music . DJ Marsa and DJ KLjay  are responsible for teaching DJ Barata some cool DJ techniques as well encouraging him to compete in DJ championships.

In 2003 and 2004 DJ Barata met DJ Marco, DJ Ajamu, DJ Celio and M. Kamau who encouraged him to spin at the “Projeto Central Acústica” which was a very successful, after that he has been spinning at parties like: “Projeto Caixa Preta”, “Projeto Noswag” , “Projeto Uhhd”, “Projeto Radiola Clandestino” as well as “Bar Projeto” during Soweto.

Today at 46 years old he only spins sporadically as a hobby.
