A new audio mix series where we call upon the most interesting artists/DJs/record labels and ask them to peer into the near future. How they take it from there is entirely open to interpretation. Supply Records boss, on-fire producer and Boston native John Barera is tasked with the third instalment. He comes through with a bumping house mix based purely on unreleased and forthcoming cuts all either made, refined or cultivated within the walls of a city on the rise.
About this mix
The motive behind this mix is to expose some of the talented producers I know, many of whom are based here in Boston. Salvatore Genovese and MDVS are European-based artists we have coming up on Supply Records, the label I run with Soren Jahan - who also appears on this mix with a track. Paul Morse is an old friend of mine who is also on Supply, and another old pal Brenden Wesley appears with a banging disco house track. Both of those guys believed in me from the very beginning and I have released musical collaborations with them.
Some of my other favorite Boston producers appear here, like Baltimoroder, my fellow resident at the Make it New party. Ali Berger appears twice with solo productions, as does my regular collaborator Will Martin - two of the finest producers in the city. The WIG & Panooc are some musician pals from New York who came up to Boston to jam out a track with me. "Black Snake" is the track I have contributed and it will be released on a label called Final Chapter, run by Berlin's Sean Dixon. My collaborations with Walter Jones, Ali Berger & Anton M will also be released on Zakim records, run by Boston's Nick Minieri. Finally, there are some killer tracks from up and coming locals who are just starting to hit their stride - Anton M, Matt Gavris, & Jack Novin.

Upfront 004: Mindset Records head honcho, Synkro, journeys through the atmospheric realms of bassweight via newness from himself, Djrum and Consequence.
Upfront 002: the next instalment in our forward-facing audio mix series comes from Air Texture, one of the best labels around dedicated to ambient and soft experimental. "Air Texture celebrates the global community at large who create music out of category: some call it ambient, others experimental; off the dance floor but still in the electronic music family, it’s an important foil to the all night rave."
