Bryan Peter Barrios was born in Thibodaux, Louisiana on 21st of June 1971. “Super B” is an American DJ, who spins intelligent breaks that stimulate the mind & inspirational trance mix sets that move the soul.

In 1985, at the age of 14, Barrios founded Impulse DJ’s with Jeffrey A. Borne, and beganmixing one year later at the age of 15.His company, Impulse DJ’s, moved from his hometown to New Orleans, Louisiana that same year, and he was taught the art of beat mixing by Eric “Doc” Miller, otherwise known as Doctor Disco, for having the first ever radio mix show in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In 1987, at age 16, Impulse DJ’s began hosting three radio mix shows of its own: The Saturday Night Dance Party on WEZB-97.1 FM in New Orleans, Louisiana; The Saturday Night Throw Down on KCIL-107.5 in Houma, Louisiana; and The Saturday Night Throw Down on KBZZ-96.7 in Morgan City, Louisiana.The three mix shows each aired until 1991.After forming a cooperative endeavor with Pyramid Audio and Miller in 1988, by 1989, Impulse was performing at 12 locations, simultaneously, every Friday and Saturday night; earning Impulse DJ’s the distinction of being the largest mobile entertainment service in the State, as rated by the Louisiana Bureau of Tourism.

In 1988, Barrios had his first Nightclub residency at the, then legendary, Iron Horse, where he played, when not booked on weekends through Impulse.

In 1991, Barrios parted ways with Borne and formed X-Calibur Entertainment with Todd M. Schexnayder, and took up Nightclub residency at Uptown in his hometown, which over the next year, went on to shut down every other dance club, including the Iron Horse, The End Zone, The Colonels Retreat and Outer-Limits, located in nearby Houma, Louisiana.Barrios performed at Uptown (a.k.a. Goobers & Bullwinkles) every Wednesday – Saturday night from 1991 through 1995, when not booked through X-Calibur. Till this day, Uptown, now operating under the name Last Call remains the only dance music venue in operation in the vicinity.

In 1995, Barrios left music to attend law school through 1998.

In 1998, after having moved to Houston, Texas, Barrios formed Eternal Records, L.L.C. with long time friend Terrance J. Maurer, Jr., where he released two continuous mix progressive trance / breakbeat compilations, Gabriel and Michael of The Angel Series, under the name DJ Temple, in 1998 and 1999, respectively.

Also in 1998, Barrios formed Eternal Productions, L.L.C. with Maurer; a company that produced raves in Louisiana and Texas for two years.The largest of which, Stimulation 101, was held at the University of Houston’s Hofheinz Pavilion on October 31, 1998 where it broke the attendance record for raves in the sate of Texas at 12,000 attendees. At the time of the event, Stimulation 101 was noted by the Houston Press as the event of choice to attend in the Houston area.The Stimulation 101 attendance record was broken later, the following year.

In 2001, after returning to Louisiana from Texas, Barrios took up a Nightclub residency in Houma, Louisiana at Wizards, which closed down after his departure.

In 2003, Barrios, with three other business associates, including Robert J. Ellis, Jr. opened Club Heat in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana.However, shortly thereafter in December 2003, Barrios moved to Florida and Club Heat failed due to poor management.

In 2006, Barrios invested in the breakbeat labels MaLicious Recordings and Thugway of Tampa, Florida and served as its A&R Executive for its 2006 and 2007 releases.

From 1997 – 2010, Barrios compiled and mixed over 50 continuous mix CD’s, which were either pressed on his label, Eternal Records, or distributed locally to his fan base. Those titles and production years of the mixes are as follows:

Barrios is considering reentering the Nightclub business in 2012 with a present business associate.
