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.

This production is 100% vibes, with a funky house rhythm atop a beautiful vocal teasing throughout the track.

March is a pivotal time for new releases with WMC and festival season in sight. Our GDD familiars THEE COOL CATS made their imprint for this month with their OOPS EP release today on Nervous Records, boasting a trifecta of funky driven tunes that slap deep on the low end. The boys once again execute soulful vocals atop powerful basslines that groove all the way through. See if you can recognize the inspirations behind “Love Parade” and “Oops”… Listen below and support this EP on beatport!

What better way to coast into the weekend than a free download from longtime GDD favorite Amtrac. Last year was a bit of a breakthrough year for him as he was asked to provide tour support for Kaskade, and also found himself on some pretty awesome HARD lineups. This newest track he just dropped called Don’t Know, which also features the help of the Posso babes, is some terrific fuel to fire you up for the hotter months ahead. Warm keys, jacking drums and catchy vocal chops make this another weapon from the Amtrac arsenal. If you’re gonna be in Miami for WMC, he’ll be doing a b2b set with Jack Beats at the OWSLA Good Times party and also throwing weights at the Skrillex & Friends party at Mansion on the 28th.
To prepare for his WMC arrival and his forthcoming EP on Discobelle, our Toronto brethren Meech is offering up the soulfully driven original “Right Things” as a giveaway! Powerful chords stab a house driven bass line onto deep melodic vocals. The product is a energy starter fit for the conference! Grab it below and check out some of his upcoming tour dates with BNR familia Rynecologist.
