Revolver Canada and Cynosure Recordings are two of Canada's foremost electronic music labels with critical acclaim worldwide. Cynosure Recordings is a minimal house and techno label founded in 1999 by Canadian techno luminary Mike Shannon. That same year, Revolver Canada was founded by Canadian DJ pioneer Jeff Milligan, alongside school buddy Robin Roy. Later that year Jeff and Mike joined forces to manage the labels in tandem whilst still curating the labels independently.Revolver Canada and Cynosure were designed to serve as a platform for like-minded producers who were working with an aesthetic similar to their own, to voice a distinct Canadian sound and to spread that sound throughout the world. Jeff and Mike apply the same rigorous integrity to their DJ selections and productions as they do to choosing music for their labels. They have always chosen uncompromising acts for Revolver Canada and Cynosure that are unique and original without the restraints of genre. Mike's origins in Kitchener Ontario, Jeff's Toronto roots and the developing relationship with their Montreal comrades led to a distinct sound which spanned from Detroit to Montreal, influenced from everywhere in between and abroad. Generally speaking, Revolver Canada is a platform for a unique minimal "off the beaten path" sound while Cynosure provides a platform for kick-ass club hits and tools. Many if not all of the acts who started their careers on Revolver Canada and Cynosure, went on to become major international successes. Revolver Canada and Cynosure were the first if not one of the first labels to present Akufen, Deadbeat and J. Hunsberger to the world. Since 1999, Revolver Canada and Cynosure have collectively released a catalog of over 36 12" recordings, primarily consisting of Canadian artists including Montreal's Akufen, Mole, Mike Shannon, Mossa and Deadbeat, Toronto's Tomas Jirku, Matt Thibideau (Altitude), Adam Marshall and Pan/tone, and Kitchener's, Jay Hunsberger, Tim Bones and Tunji. Revolver Canada and Cynosure have collaborated with various prolific international artists with work appearing by artists like Pier and Andres Bucci and Sieg Über Die Sonne (Chile), Monolake (Germany) Perlon's Dimbiman (Germany), Sud Electronic's Portable (South Africa), Boxer Recordings Frank Martiniq (Germany), James Thomason (USA), Mitsuaki Komamura (Japan) and Shaka (Switzerland). The variety of imprints on Revolver Canada and Cynosure have given many Canadian and international artists considerable global exposure, substantially raising the profile of Canadian electronic music. Revolver Canada and Cynosure have had an unprecedented influence on electronic music locally and throughout the world. Revolver Canada resides in Berlin, Germany and Cynosure is based in Valencia, Spain.
