An Interview With Jesse Rose
One of my favorite discoveries from WMC 09 was meeting Jesse Rose and discovering his label and style of dance music. Jesse Rose was raised on Motown soul, jazz and eighties funk in London, but moved to Bristol to throw club nights with old friend at the beginning of the nineties. In 1997 Jesse moved back to London and started playing regularly, honing his particular blend of Chicago house and early Detroit techno. He released his first mix CD ‘Tec-House Living’ on the Subversive label under his Deeper Sound Of Bristol moniker before founding Front Room Recordings with Chris Belsey in 2001. The Front Room artist roster boasts the likes of Solid Groove, Trevor Loveys, Jamie Anderson, Atlantic Fusion, Rob Mello, John Tejada, Stefan Goldmann and productions and remixes by Jesse himself. Jesse also co-owns ‘loungin’ recordings’ and his newly formed ‘Made to Play’ imprint, though lately he’s been releasing on Simple, Freerange REKIDS, Dubsided and Get Physical. As well as his own production slate, which includes the massive ‘A-sided’ on Dubsided, Jesse has remixed the likes of Riton, Radio Slave, Elite Force, Kosma & Trevor Loveys to name a few. Jesse can also be found producing alongside Dave Taylor AKA Solid Groove/Switch under the guises of Induceve on Derrick Carter’s Classic label. Induceve highlights include ‘Jazz Chops’, ‘Time To Begin’ and ‘Monolevel’ on Classic as well as the ‘Pick It Up’ EP on Dubsided. Jesse also regularly produces alongside Trevor Loveys as izit? Jesse regularly tours around the world at places such as Fabric, Basics, WMF, Panoramabar. Residencies have included Front Room Sessions @ Kinzo in Berlin, Wagg in Paris, a two-year stint on Kiss FM and Back to Yours in London. His album "What Do You Do If You Don't" is out now and we love it.
