Jesse has been producing and playing records for over fourteen years. Raised on an upbringing of Motown Soul, Jazz and Eighties Funk, in London’s Ladbroke Grove area, Jesse moved to Bristol at the age of twelve and started working with old friend Jamie Anderson at the beginning of the nineties.

The duo soon started DJing and began throwing club nights, homing in on their particular sound of Chicago house mixed with early Detroit Techno. By the mid nineties Jesse had already earned a reputation for solid sets across the 4/4 spectrum and it was around this time that those influences and ideas were finally cemented and Jesse began producing.

In 1997 Jesse moved back to his hometown London and soon started playing regularly around the capital and recorded his first mix CD entitled ‘Tec-House Living’ released on the Subversive label under his Deeper Sound Of Bristol moniker. The mix received critical acclaim from all sides of the dance music press, picking up on the unique way Jesse presented his sound.

On the labels front, Jesse also co-owns ‘loungin’ recordings’ that has been receiving praise from the likes of Masters At Work, Gilles Peterson and Jazzanova, as well as his newly formed ‘Made to Play’ Imprint.

As well as his own acclaimed productions including the massive ‘A-sided’ on Dubsided, Jesse has remixed the likes of Layo & Bushwacka, Riton, Radio Slave, Phil Weeks, Elite Force, Jimpster, Kosma & Trevor Loveys to name but a few. Jesse can also be found producing alongside Switch AKA Solid Groove/Switch under the guises of Induceve on Derrick Carter’s Classic label and more recently on the Dubsided imprint. Induceve highlights include “Jazz Chops”, “Time To Begin” and ‘Monolevel’ on Classic and the “Pick It Up” EP & Warehouse Shit on Dubsided.
