Jesse Rose has been at the forefront of the ever-expanding electronic scene, championing house and DJing around the world for ten years now. The success of his breakout single “Asided” in 2005 saw him gain global accreditation, and over the years he’s released hundreds of tracks, kickstarted House’s integral part of Berlin’s famous Panorama Bar, opened four record labels, produced the likes of Hot Chip to Chiddy Bang, remixed everyone from Metronomy to Childish Gambino, and DJ-ed damn near every one of the world’s greatest clubs.
So, naturally, being the timely persons we are, when we saw he was deep in the middle of a worldwide tour following the start of his fourth and latest imprint, A-SIDED, we couldn’t help but want to catch up for an interview. Keep reading for Jesse’s updates on the label fronts, his savvy travel tips, life in Ibiza residencies, and more.
Jesse’s latest release comes from the legendary Alex Gopher in the form of a remix for his last single “Touch ‘N’ Tease” and came out just last week on his own A-SIDED. Also worth checking his clever remix of Childish Gambino’s “Telegraph Ave”
With a roster that already includes Phoenix, Temper Trap, Mumford & Sons and Two Door Cinema Club, Glassnote Records recently added hip/hop artist Childish Gambino to their already stellar lineup. Childish Gambino’s new album, Camp, was released this week and will undoubtedly continue the label’s run of sensational alternative releases.
“Heartbeat”, featured below, is one of many standout tracks on the new album. “Heartbeat” opens with a deep R n’B vibe, gets supercharged with some driving, fuzzed-out, throwback electro and is capped off with scathing, unapologetic lyrics, making it one of the heaviest hitting hip hop tracks of 2011. It’s a brand of hip hop that you dirty dancers can certainly get on board with.
And in case you didn’t know, Childish Gambino is actor/rapper Donald Glover. DON’T HATE. Go out, grab the album and you’ll see…he’s the real deal. For real. Camp is out now on Glassnote. Grab a copy HERE.
