Bacanito's musical journey began at a very young age, growing up with a father would sing, play the piano and the organ around the house and at church. This is where he learned to play the piano, drums, bass & guitar, with the church's band. From the start, music was more than making sounds; it served a purpose, it touched the soul, it mended wounds.
His love affair with House music began in the late 90s in Montreal, but took some time before it took over. He has lived in Switzerland and traveled to different countries, experienced music in different settings and after a few years of being back home in Montreal he caught the House bug while trying to produce a hip hop track.
Things escalated fairly quickly and he continued with house music production and also began to DJ around this time, after long-time local DJ Pierre Perpall Jr loaded two Technics 1200s, a mixer and a crate of records into the back of his car.
His instruction was simple: Learn.
Pierre took him under his wing and helped him secure his first gigs and he then went on to begin playing at different venues and clubs around Montreal. These include Le Salon Daomé, Terrasses Bonsecours, Club UN/Club Peopl, le Consulat, where Uzi, Datchka and Iseult, believe in him enough to let him play on a monthly basis very early on. He then went on to be one of the original members of the Oasis Wednesdays crew.
Montreal being a melting pot of cultures, he met many collaborators of different origins and influences, which enabled him to experiment with music he may not have made on his own. These collaborators, over the years, include Mojazz, Tazz, Giovanni Randisi, FukiFlex, jLove amongs others. Many of these encounters took place at the infamous club Cherry. There is something to be said about this venue and how it helped connect local artists.
Since 2009, Bacanito has produced music, some on his own, but he also collaborated with others on both vinyl and digital releases. He produces under the name Bacanito, but alongside longtime collaborator and BFAM FukiFlex (Paris), they are known as Sweet x Sour'. They've produced a slew of bootlegs and remixes, a single, two EPs and shared the stage along with Mr V in Montreal as well as in Miami during Sole Channel's WMC festivities.
Whether solo or via collaboration, he has worked with labels such as Sole Channel (Mr V), NEWAV, United Music Records (Hallex M), Underground Quality (DJ Jus-Ed), Tsuba, New Kanada, Montreal's own Kinjo Music (Dave Allison),Deepnsound (Marcelo Cruz), Baldeelox and more recently can be heard on material released on Sistrum Recordings (Orchestral Dimensions with Tazz and Giovanni Randisi) and Global Diplomacy (N'dinga Gaba, Rescue Poetix - Build | Sweet x Sour Moody Blend).
He's also shared the booth with DJs such as Black Coffee, Mr. V, Josh Milan, Franck Roger, Jojo Flores, to name a few.
More recently, his longstanding collaboration with DJ Tazz has led to the pressing of their first independantly released EP, Infected Rhythms 001
