ACT! aka Egyptrixx
With the tons of hyped up (but utterly mediocre) dance music that comes out these days, it's pretty hard to stand apart from the herd; not the case with Toronto's Egyptrixx. In just over one year, his distinct sonic aesthetic has become an acclaimed presence in underground music, garnering praise from heavyweight DJ's, including Sinden, Mary Ann Hobbs and Drop the Lime, and influential publications such as Fader, Xlr8r and The Wire magazine. All of his recent records have also seen regular radio play on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM among others. His unique and energetic live sets are in-demand, with headlining gigs banked all over Europe and North America and a busy touring schedule in upcoming months. He makes celestial club music; jeep music for a Saturn desert. There is an exhilarating right-but-wrong tension that all of Egyptrixx' tracks share - a shifting balance between melodic and dissonant, rapturous and antisocial. His releases continue to challenge the status quo and impress with a unique style informed by elements of techno, house, dubstep and pop music. With critically acclaimed releases already out on Night Slugs and Ramp Recordings, and his forthcoming debut LP slated for an early 2011 release, the future looks bright for Egyptrixx.

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.
