Hear awesome DJ sets like this one live every first Friday of the month on the Peace Portal Podcast broadcasted on www.kzaxradio.org.
After putting out some of my favorite releases of 2018, especially on Hood Politics Records, I’m very excited to bring Seattle’s techno bad boy to this side of the Portal for an exclusive mix! On the front lines of delivering cutting edge dance music to the Pacific Northwest, Jesse is leading the charge with Studio 4/4’s weekly event, Habitat!
What have you been up to?
I lead the fight at Habitat with some amazing help from the Studio 4/4 team in Seattle, WA. We book weekly house and techno at Kremwerk. Come check us out sometime!
Tell us a bit about your mix!
Definitely a tech grind sesh. Some heavy hitters in this one!
What’s next on your agenda?
I work everyday for Habitat, but my next musical venture is with California’s Arnold and Lane. We got a banger of an EP on our hands!
What are you listening to when you’re not behind the decks?
I listen to so much. Lots of hip-hop, even some alternative and bluegrass. Lately I’ve really been bumping James Blake, Carl Finlow, and The Rurals. But, I listen to everything from Michael Jackson to Avril Lavgine.
