Jimpster
Jimpster
Taste-maker, label boss, producer, DJ, remixer. Jamie Odell wears many hats and wears them well. Under his Jimpster alias, he has become one the most revered deep house producer/DJs operating on the scene today. His esteemed labels Freerange and Delusions of Grandeur continue to help break incredible new music and equally impressive acts such as Detroit Swindle, Tornado Wallace and Session Victim. From his UK base, Jimpster has inadvertently become a standard-bearer and custodian of the authentic house sound, and carries this flag to the four corners of the world.

His seminal LP 'Messages From The Hub' established Jimpster as an artist of note back in the late 90's and the music has flowed steadily and consistently since then, mostly on Freerange, with the 2006 excursion 'Square Up' on Ben Watt's Buzzin Fly label proving to be a (temporary) transfer of one London-based deep house icon to another.

Releases such as 'Dangly Panther', 'A Love Like This' and 'Can't Stop Loving' continue to be choice cuts for many DJ's whilst 'These Times' and 'Porchlight And Rocking Chairs', two more recent deep house anthems, were remixed by Dixon and KiNK to serious effect. 2015 shows absolutely no signs of slowing down with the 'English Rose' EP arriving on Freerange in early summer and a new hook-up with Berlin's Suol label kicking off with a remix of Till Von Sein's 'Booty Angel'. It continues with the Jimpster original 'Last Days of Summer' which is due mid summer.

Sterjimp? His current stat count as a remixer is touching a century and the acts to receive his midas touch includes everyone from Osunlade ("Mommas Groove" still being hammered by Moodymann on a regular basis), Solomun, Kollektiv Turmstrasse and Josh Wink ('Jus Right' stole the show at Dixon's 2015 Detroit Movement set) through to Bob Marley, Seal and Terrence Parker. Recent remixes for Detroit Swindle, Paxton Fettel and Da Posse all show that the inspiration is still flowing thick and fast.

As we head deeper into 2015, with Jimpster still doing the business at globally renowned hotspots like Fabric, Air and Watergate, a slew of new music on the way, the ideas flowing freely and with over two decades of experience to draw on we see clearly that the fire is still burning as brightly as ever.

John Barera
John Barera
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.

As a DJ John always puts in a little extra work to keep the dance floor engaged and the party special. Always collecting and listening to records of all kinds, his sets have been known to go over well. Groove Magazine, Resident Advisor, Fact Mag, XLR8R and Little White Earbuds have all spoken well of his work and he has been invited to play alongside artists such as Stacey Pullen, Optimo, Juan Atkins, Floating Points, Jimmy Edgar, Daniel Bell, Andrés, Martyn, Faltydl, and Bicep. 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.
