Mixmag – “Say hello to the future of House music.”
xlr8r Magazine – “Your average club-goer may not know what to call the hybrid house being made by Jesse Rose, but there’s no mistaking its potent mix of mind-numbingly crisp techno/house beats, gritty sample riddled melodies and bassbin-blowing subsonics or its effectiveness on a dancefloor”
IDJ“After years earning his dance music stripes, Jesse Rose has finally hit the big time.”

Ever since the birth of music, there’s been someone out there who’s looked at what’s available, taken inspiration from what’s around them and innovated a new style of music. Stand up Jesse Rose. Regarded as one of dance music’s most forward-thinking producers in recent years, Jesse alongside Switch and Claude VonStroke, has been a pivotal figure in the revival of House music being cool once again. For years this fine genre has been misguided, the true underground heroes have continued to make quality, interesting music for sure, but the well known artists have been dated and lazy with their ideas. Switch and VonStroke have been the producers-du-jour of the last few years, 2009 is the time for Jesse Rose.

As one of the UK’s finest exports as a DJ (he lives in Berlin, of course) this is no overnight success PR plan. Jesse started DJing at the tender age of 14, raised on an upbringing of Motown Soul, Jazz and Eighties Funk in London’s Ladbroke Grove area. At the beginning of the nineties Jesse moved to Bristol and started DJing, putting on parties and making music with old friend Jamie Anderson. By the mid nineties Jesse had earned himself an enviable reputation for electrifying sets and was regularly playing at Fabric, which in turn got him bookings across Europe. These days Jesse’s calendar is booked up a year in advance playing only the best venues and parties, since September he’s toured Europe, Japan and Australia and is still the only DJ from the UK to have ever held a monthly residency at the world famous Panorama Bar in Berlin, his own Made To Play night, which continues to be one of the most popular.

2007 seemed without doubt to be Jesse’s year of recognition, featured in every international dance music publication, nominated alongside four others for ‘Best British DJ’ at the DJ Mag best of British Awards, number four in IDJ players of the year & fourteen in Mixmag’s best DJ’s in the world 2007. Jesse finished a triumphant year playing in Sydney to 15,000 people on the main stage at Field Day.

Like his DJ status, as a producer, Jesse is a guarantee. World-renowned for his ‘Fidget House’ sound which he created with long-time music partners Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor and Trevor Loveys, he’s now the guy you turn to when you want a dancefloor remix, lending his services to the likes of Hot Chip, Simian Mobile Disco, Underworld and literally tonnes more. To date Jesse has recorded for the likes of Classic, Get Physical, JBO, Simple and his own Made To Play and Front Room imprints and of course Dubsided, which is the home for ‘What Do You Do If You Don’t?’


Where Jesse was schooled by Switch (who co-produced many of the tracks featured on the album), he himself has helped bring through the UK’s current dancefloor darlings, anyone heard of Herve? Or Sinden? Indeed it was Jesse that played a key role in the development of their sound, keeping it in the Dubsided family, releasing records together and twisting the template of house. 

With an impressive back catalogue of singles and DJ mixes, released on the finest labels and working with some of the most exciting names in the industry, Jesse is now to release his first solo album, an album which is in it’s third complete version, 3 years in the making and his biggest project to date.

The album is a work of brilliance and like Claude VonStroke’s ’07 release ‘Beware Of the Bird’, Jesse shows how cutting edge House can be accessible, playful and fun whilst proving exactly how blurred the lines have become with Pop music, with guest appearances from Hot Chip, David E Sugar and Afra & The Incredible Beatbox Band. The lead single and first track ‘Forget My Name’ has been all over Radio 1, with Joe and Alexis from Hot Chip on vocals spelling out R-O-S-E, making sure you do anything but forget his name. Jesse explains, “After a gig at a rock festival Joe went back to London and wrote me this track. At first I thought the lyrics were a bit too cheeky but as I’m known for that kind of behaviour I thought ‘fuck it, lets do it’.” It was the right decision as it’s currently blowing up the airwaves and clubland, which you could easily predict for a number of the tracks featured across the LP.

Proven bangers ‘Asided’ and ‘You’re All Over My Head’ are featured alongside the Moondog inspired ‘Night At The Dogs’ and future club hits ‘Pop Yer Porn’, ‘Wine Gum’ and ‘Touch My Horn’ with the latter already generating a huge response on the dancefloor and radio as the B-side to the single. Where Jesse has certainly not forgotten his club roots, he’s also shown his skills as a producer of songs with ‘Miss Taker’ featuring rising star David E Sugar and the second collaboration on the album with Hot Chip ‘Day Is Done’. “When I first spoke to Hot Chip about doing a collaboration they sent over two demos, one was up-tempo & catchy and the other was this melancholic, deep and beautiful song. I wanted to go with this one because it gives the album a depth that the more up-tempo tracks might miss.”

It’s true, it does and it also takes the album to new heights. No other dance producer at 30 has more experience than Jesse and no dance producer full stop has an album like this, not even his mentor Switch, VonStroke or Herve. Jesse has operated in the underground for years, proving his worth and importance. With the release of his album in 2009 he will show how he’s now gone beyond the underground and can stand tall as one of the most exciting names in music today.

So if you buy a ticket to one of his album launch party’s, you will receive these tracks.

3.     Pop Yer Porn

Out of the dungeons of Moenchengladbach, Germany the thirty-something pulls the strings and makes things happen. His recent and most successful move definitely was to give birth to the already well established electro/house imprint Systematic in 2004 in Berlin which is a platform for his own productions as well as for hot and upcoming talents. Electronic house music with a certain breakdance appeal, reminiscent of old school Chicago dance floor insanity is Romboy’s true passion, when it comes to deejaying, producing and making decisions as the Systematic commander!


So far for the label he has collaborated with such high profiled artists as Booka Shade or Blake Baxter and signed tracks and mixes from producers like Martin Landsky, John Dahlbäck, Phonique, Jence or Abysm.

After only a couple of releases Romboy managed to put his own stamp on the international club scene and his first artist album Gemini was released in 2006

His second artist album for Systematic records, Contrast released in June 2008, sees an electronic album of collaborations with some of dance music’s most excellent vocalists. Chelonis R. Jones – known for releases on Get Physical and for his collaborations with Röyksopp – contributes on two releases. Blake Baxter – a regular Romboy collaborator who has also released on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS imprint, Tresor, Disko B and Underground Resistance – adds his vocals to ‘Fly Away’. And Mr. K-Alexi – one of Chicago’s finest who has also collaborated with artists including Larry Heard, Robert Owens, Will Smith and Felix Da Housecat, lends his voice to two tracks on the album.

This month sees the launch of the first Front Room Recordings Podcast. Daniel Steinberg under the guise of Cobra Limbos has delivered the most recent Front Room Release. Having had great success on labels such as Microfon, Grandpetrol and Stylerockets Daniel Steinberg now brings his sound to Front Room Recordings and you can expect to hear a lot more from the guy into the future His infectious driving grooves are going to be nothing short of amazing in the Easter Sunday Sun!!!

Have been digging his minimal style with a quirky fun side. ‘In my Home’ has a fun bouncy side to it, very light hearted. where the ‘Opening Close’ has a more deep minimal house side to it. Two very different styles from him.

KAYSH . . .

22 year old Australian producer/dj Kaysh has remixed the likes of Deadmau5, Melleefresh, Pablo Decoder and Neon Stereo, had remixes and originals released on Play Digital, Direct Drive Digital, Domina Productions and System Recordings and has been remixed herself by Kid Dub, Dj Zya, Khainz & Jill Bellac and Addiction to name just a few.

Starting piano lessons at 6 followed by the guitar and drums she always had aspirations of starting a band, but by 13 had developed an interest in electronic music, feeling it was something she could do independently. Buying her first pieces of equipment, a Roland EG 101 followed shortly by an MC 505, she began developing her skills, being heavily influenced by the Melbourne Wetmusik Techno label. She also developed a passion for djing, practicing on friends decks before getting her own at 17 and at 20 she won the Pioneer Pro Dj comp scoring herself some CDJ1000s, a mixer and a Soundsystem.
