John Barera is a DJ/Producer & Label owner based in Brooklyn, NY. His musical style weaves between techno, acid, house and electro. Barera has played at clubs and events around the US and Europe including Public Works, Smart Bar, Panorama Bar, Fabric, Razzmatazz, Maassilo, Love Saves The Day, Tresor, Motion Bristol, Hot Mass, Institut fuer Zukunft, Tangent Gallery, Output, Good Room and many others. 

His productions have been released on various labels including Allergy Season, Argot, Episodes & Just Jack. Most notably, John’s debut album 'Graceless' was released on Dolly alongside Will Martin in 2014. Their new album ’Proceed to the Root’ is due out on 2MR in September 2017. John is the head of Supply Records alongside Soren Jahan - a vinyl only imprint featuring an eclectic range of house and techno. Together they produce under the name B-Tracks. Barera also founded a techno/acid focused party and label with Volvox called Jack Dept. The coveted Brooklyn monthly began at Bossa Nova Civic Club in 2014 and the first releases came in 2016.

Will Martin is a DJ, producer, and label head living in Brooklyn. In 2016 he and his wife Susie started their label, Firm Tracks, which specializes in releasing music from fresh, unreleased, up-and-coming artists and features unique, hand screen printed artwork. His sense for DIY aesthetics and ear for raw sounds translates to the studio and can be heard across his productions. Recently a string of EPs on beloved Discovery Recordings and John Barera and Volvox's Jack Dept. straddle both sides of warm fuzzy electronics and harsh paranoid acid. His career as an artist started in 2013 with a featured track on the famed Panorama Bar mix series and has since seen releases on Dolly, Argot, Basement Floor, and Supply. Currently he's riding the wave of his second full length album with frequent collaborator John Barera on Mike Simonetti’s red-hot 2MR, released in September.


Kellam Matthews has been collecting and playing records since childhood. He conceived, launched and manages roving party and record label Frendzone. The label fuzes deep house and breaks, with a heavy drum and bass influence that harkens back to the epoch of the genre. His DJ sets mirror the theme of the label crossing between house, techno, breaks, drum n bass, lush soundscapes and driving acid.
