DJ | Producer | Steady Rhythm Label Boss
John's journey into electronic music stems from the early 90's Texas underground rave scene. Heavily influenced by this sound, he was driven to start collecting vinyl and hit the decks mixing break beats in 1995. Shortly after, his love for techno formed after traveling across the U.S. seeing artists such as Cari Lekebusch, Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, Stacey Pullen, Carl Cox, and Richie Hawtin. These artists still remain his present day influences.
As a producer, John Reyes is recognized for his funky techno style as well as his darker sounds under the alias Audio Mekanic. Over a few short years he defined an underground rhythm that quickly gained support from major artists around the globe including Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Paco Osuna, Agent Orange, Neverdogs, Riva Starr, Anthony Pappa, Luciano, Alexi Delano, Roger Sanchez, and DJ Sneak to name a few. His hard work and dedication in the studio paved the way on to numerous record labels including Leap4rog Music, Bedroom Muzik, Kore Music, Bush, and Uniform. With solid remixes for established producers such as Flavio Diaz and Agent Orange, John continues to build his discography while operating his own imprint Steady Rhythm Recordings.
As a DJ, John has played alongside some of the best and well known talent including Stacey Pullen, Agent Orange, Anthony Attalla, Andreas Henneberg, Punisher, and Tim Xavier. He stays well-planted in the underground Texas techno scene and continues to push his brand of funky tech to the dance floors with precise mixing skills and thoughtful programming. John has been holding his monthly club residency for over 8 years every second Wednesday called STEADY RHYTHM at PLUSH in Austin, TX.
