„My house is your house and your house is mine.“

Kay Barton was born in North Germany in 1980. From just 14 years of age he started producing electronic music by using basic DOS operating software.
After moving to Heidelberg in 1997, Kay was given the possibility to actually work on his career for the first time. Besides producing he started working as a DJ and ever since he plays dynamic techno and tech house sets. 
Over the years Kay has played in many national and international locations, at events like or in the frameworks of Love Parade Berlin, G-Move Hamburg, Zug der Liebe Berlin, Rave The Planet Parade as well as for several German broadcast transmitters and radio stations (e.g. Sunshine Live). 

Apart from bookings Kay regularly hosted numerous events dedicated to electronic music in different locations around the Rhine-Main area, such as “The Place To Be” or “Trendwaende”.

After experimenting with electronic music under different artist names Kay now focuses on straight techno music under his real name Kay Barton. 2016 he debuted here with his single “Return 01” which has been released on Bonzai Rec. 2019 Kay’s EP “MacroGod“ appeared on Emerald & Doreen Records both digitally and on vinyl. For this pumping techno and acid tracks he got big remix support by Loveparade founder Dr Motte as well as by Mijk van Dijk. After releases at Berlin-based records labels Neuhain and Ballroom in 2020 he became regular artist at Trapez Records, Cologne.

 2022 he released his first EP on IAMT (I Am Techno). In the same year, he produced a remix of „Analog Obsession“ for Tom Wax’s anniversary album „Generation 72“. In 2023, the first release on Volume Berlin Records followed with „Life Technology“, including a Mijk van Dijk remix.

In his current event and mix series “Sophisticated Rhythms” he brings together different artists from the techno scene in either mix podcasts, live streams or club events.
 Since summer 2020 Kay hosts a monthly techno mix show, “Wiener Wohnzimmer” on Germany’s first radio station for electronic music, Evosonic Radio. In 2023 he and his wife founded the event series “Trendwænde Vienna” and organised the „Save The Planet Float“ at Rave The Planet Berlin together with Hexenwerk Festival, Volume Berlin Records and Microglobe.
