Born as Barbara Bonfiglio in Catania, Italy, Misstress Barbara is an internationally acclaimed electronic artist, DJ, and producer, but a particular hometown favorite in Montreal. Misstress Barbara, which is said to be a word play between Miss and Stress, moved to Montreal when she was 8 years old, but would go on to secure quite a legacy as Montreal’s best DJ. She has worked alongside such big name talents as Bjork, The Prodigy, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, and John Digweed. She has earned a number of other awards and accolades, outside of Montreal, which includes Best Breakthrough Underground DJ at the UK Underground Music Awards. She is certainly a force within the techno community playing to sold out venues across the globe. We recently mentioned Misstress Barbara in our Destination – Montreal feature where she plays THE event of the summer at Piknic Electronik. That is, of course, direct from the locals but is an event not to be missed.
Misstress Barbara guest mixes on Jewel Kid’s Alleanza radioshow where she played live at Stereo, in of course, Montreal, which is highly regarded as a temple by top DJs and named DJ Mag’s Best Club (North). Check out her mix below but read more about Misstress Barbara, Piknic Electronik, and Montreal in general at the Destination: Montreal link above!!
