Hot Mass & Cold Cuts John Barera (Jack Dept / NYC) & Will Martin (Dolly / NYC)
John Barera has been a firm disciple of the Techno and House world for the past 10 years, and after co-founding Supply Records in 2011 & Jack Dept in 2014 has brought an elegant, resoundingly universal mixture of underground club tracks to the fore. John is currently holding down a residency at Boston's long-running Make it New party and at Bossa Nova Civic Club in Brooklyn.
When he's not DJing, John is hard at work in the studio. Outside of Supply Records, he has released music on labels like Dolly, Dirt Crew Recordings, Soul Clap, Ortloff, Jackoff and Ecstasy records. His project B-Tracks, alongside label partner Soren Jahan, has also released four EPs so far. Barera released an exclusive track on Steffi's Panorama Bar Mix CD on Ostgut Ton and loaned his remixing talents to labels like EDEC, Sincopat and End of Dayz. His productions have been supported by Doc Martin, Ben UFO, Jonas Kopp, Kai Alcé, Jacques Renault, Serge, nd_baumecker, Andrew Grant, Moomin, Clockwork, La Fleur, DJ Three, Detroit Swindle and many other respected artists.
In October of 2014, John released his well-received debut album 'Graceless' alongside Will Martin on Dolly and they begun to play live sets together.
Will Martin (NYC) is a DJ, producer, and label head living in Brooklyn who has been steadily carving a place out for himself in the center of the Bushwick techno renaissance. 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 super-hip Brooklyn label 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, and Supply. He plans to release his second full length album with frequent collaborator John Barera on Mike Simonetti’s red-hot 2MR in September 2017.
