Jesse Rose is not new to the label game. After initiating his first label Front Room over 10 years ago, he’s since seen the growth of two more labels: Made To Play and Play It Down. With Made To Play being a major facet during the 2009-2010 era of “fidget house” (as well as the home to REAL tropical house like Round Table Knights’ “Calypso”) and Play It Down making a name for itself amongst underground kingpins like Oliver Dollar, Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann, Guti and more, you would think Jesse Rose would lie comfortably amongst his multitude of successes. But this is not the case, and now we see him restlessly launching his newest label venture: A-Sided. After announcing just over a week ago, we already know the first release is coming in the form of a collab between himself and Claude VonStroke, there’s two launch parties coming up in Los Angeles and Miami, and things are moving quickly.

We’re proud to be a part of the label’s launch party in Miami this year, a daytime jaunt with a stacked lineup of some of house music’s most highly-regarded heavyweights. Jesse Rose and Claude VonStroke will be doing an exclusive back-to-back set, and joining them are Junior Sanchez as his A-Sided pseudonym IMIURU, Roger Sanchez as S-Man, Oliver Dollar, Ardalan, Christian Nielsen, Brillstein and special guests.


Gotta Dance Dirty will be holding an exclusive contest for a chance to win up to 5 guestlist spots for you and your friends, as well as a line of tequila shots for all of you to be shared with Jesse Rose and Claude Vonstroke. All you have to do is tag your friends in the comments and we’ll pick a winner by Friday, March 20th.

Don’t forget you can also see A-Sided’s launch in Los Angeles on Friday at the infamous RHONDA party, and stay posted on the label’s Facebook and Twitter to get further announcements.

See you on the dancefloor.

The past few months have been an absolute flurry of activity for the young Canadian remix prodigy that is Cyril Hahn. With undeniably infectious takes on tracks from female crooners like Destiny’s Child and Mariah Carey, his SoundCloud has hit massive play counts. It’s slowed R&B with pop sensibility… a danceable, oxytocin-laced fusion of groovy and catchy with touches of garage and UK vibes. Pretty much what every person with reasonable taste in music wants to put on their sex playlist. Who could be mad at that?

After his multitude of successes with his releases and mixes, he hit Europe for tour, and it’s finally that time for him to hit the states. Naturally it wouldn’t be a trip to the US without a stop in LA, which I am more than thrilled about. Having officially joined the AM Only roster, a whole North American tour in the works, and multitudes of Coachella friends in town, Cyril Hahn has much to be excited about for his show tonight at the Belasco. I can’t tell you who the special guests (YES, MORE THAN ONE!) are, but I can tell you it’s being presented by Goldenvoice (cough cough)… and you have two clues in the previous sentence. Oh yeah, I can also tell you that apart from Cyril Hahn guaranteed to provide some sexy jams this evening, the special guests are FUCKING AWESOME and you basically are a big dummy if you miss out.

Purchase tickets below, oh and if you’re on the fence about it (shame on you), go ahead and listen to the GDD Guest Mix he did to get you in the mood.
