Doesn’t get more LA than a fluid and bouncy remix of a Rihanna single from a yet-to-be-known producer. So here we are, ready to be blasted from car stereos with the windows down. Little known about Young Prince as of yet, other than he’s purposefully anonymous and residing somewhere in the depths of Los Angeles county. Rihanna’s single is booming – a stomping, in-your-face announcement rather fitting as a lead single for a new album, especially our darling bold RiRi. Somehow, Young Prince strips things to a shinier place, literally flooding the production with dripping synths. Normally something so esoteric isn’t necessarily assertive, yet Young Prince sonically delivers something that commands your ears and the room, stripping none of the booming energy from the original whilst shifting the mood and aesthetic to an entirely different place.
Intrigued to see what’s next from this mystery producer, I imagine it’s going to be good if you kick off with an official Rihanna remix….

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.
See you on the dancefloor.
