‘Whatcha Want’ is the first solo single of 2016 from Jesse Rose and it arrives with a punch of chunk and full of cheek, just as you'd expect. Says Jesse about the record, released on his own Play It Down imprint, "I love deep records and I love techno records. But as a producer I really feel at home making house tracks with a serious beat and a load of tongue-in-cheek on top - I feel like I may have perfected that here. LOL! I just made it for a bit of fun but since playing it out it's really been going off, so that's when I decided to put it out."

Earlier this year we saw Jesse release a Fabriclive compilation to critical acclaim, remix Rudimental, Cassius, Mathias Kaden and Roland Clark, start a collaboration with Junior Sanchez ‘Midnight Snacks’ (their first single ‘The Journey' drops next month on Davide Squillace’s This And That label). Carrying on though this summer Jesse also has new music coming an an EP on Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It label and Riva Starr’s Snatch! label. 

Jesse has also just started a monthly residency this summer at Pikes in Ibiza for his brand new 'Not Another' branded parties with Junior Sanchez, and he will also be playing solo as part of a residency at Space. 

Out now on Beatport:

Today marks the release of Jesse Rose & Trozé's MASSIVE 'Chocolate (Milk Version)'. What started off as a joke between the guys, with the concept of 'Chocolate' pertaining to all sorts of things you can put in your mouth besides just a sweet snack, has become a global hit and amassed widespread acclaim. It has already begun to make its way through international airwaves and into big name DJ sets, and was most notably featured as the backtrack for one of Apple's latest iPhone videos. Watch it here.

Since its inception back at the start of last year, A-SIDED has amassed numerous global accolades, including being named in Beatport's Breakthrough Underground Labels of 2015, received continued support from Radio 1, Beats 1, and Triple J radio stations, as well as garner respect from house and techno's DJ favorites, such as A-SIDED's own Claude VonStroke, to Matthias Tanzmann, Todd Terry and beyond.  

A-SIDED Volume 1 comes as an amalgamation of the label’s top releases from the past year, as well as three unreleased exclusive tracks, including a brand new track from Trozé and two unreleased Dub versions of “The Grandma” and “Touch ‘N’ Tease.” The compilation will include tracks from Claude VonStroke, Dansson, IMIURU, Jesse Rose, Trozé and remixes from Alex Gopher and Christian Nielsen. It’s a celebration of the house music we love and serves as a toast to a year’s work and plaudits.

After slamming the door shut on 2015 with his thumping remix of Jesse Rose & Trozé’s “Chocolate” and garnering some major support from the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Gorgon City, Danish house maestro Christian Nielsen is back with another dance floor heater on A-SIDED entitled, “What You Thinking?” It’s an impactful, soul-filled house gem that showcases the Dane’s best qualities as a producer. Nielsen is relentless, and has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with once again with his uncanny knack for churning out soulful yet robust, club-ready house bangers that you can’t help but groove to. He’s is at the top of his game and is leading the charge for an imprint that prides itself on only putting out the highest quality, top-notch music there is. There’s a reason why A-SIDED was named as one of Beatport’s Breakthrough Underground labels of 2015 and with his third release on the label, Christian Nielsen is a big reason why.

"For years I've been asked to do something new with the Junior Sanchez track "B With U" which features the amazing vocalist Dajae. I was asked to re-do it, re-release it, or have others remix it, because they called it a 'house classic' (which I never could). So, as I was messing with grooves in my kitchen, I just felt this was right for the reincarnation of the track - even though it's not! IMIURU's "B With U" is a track all its own but with a real feel so reminiscent of that so-called classic, with splashes of Dajae's vocals and an insane breakdown. When I sent this to Jesse Rose he automatically knew how special this was. And from that moment, a great relationship bloomed with the A-SIDED crew, who all have impeccable taste in house music!" - IMIURU (aka Junior Sanchez)

A-SIDED is hosting two very special Made for the Day events with Piknic Electronik this year in Barcelona and Montreal. 

In 2011, Jesse Rose created Made for the Night as a means of bringing internationally-known DJs (and friends) together into a club, without the means of a label or festival. A mighty task that has successfully brought together artists like Derrick Carter, Four Tet, Henrik Schwarz, Claude VonStroke, Chez Damier, Guti and many many more to clubs like Watergate, Fabric, Razzmatazz and Womb amongst others, is now coming back to Piknic Electronik for two unique stops. With MFTN offering up DJs all night long, Made for the Day presents a sunnier outlook with one of the world's greatest weekly summer festivals. This year, with the start of Jesse's new label A-SIDED, the label sees a special collaborative effort with the events.
Kicking things off with the opening party of Piknic Electronik Barcelona, on June 28th Made for the Day brings Marquis Hawkes, Detroit Swindle, and a very special B2B set from Jesse Rose and Justin Martin to the table. Located on the Joan Brossa Garden grounds near Castle De Montjuic, the party holds 5000 people on the vast grounds of the Joan Brossa Gardens near Castle De Montjuic, overlooking the beautiful spawl of Barcelona's city center. Music kicks off at 15:00 and runs until 21:00. Tickets start at just €10 and can be purchased at
The following weekend, Made for the Day heads over to Montreal to host its very first Piknic Electronik in North America. Joined by the legendary originator of deep-house, Chez Damier, and local boss Guilty, Jesse Rose will undoubtedly be serving Montreal a dose of exactly how special Made for the Day can be. The event, also hosting near 5000 people is hosted at Parc Jean-Drapeau from 4pm to 10pm and tickets start at $13.50 CAD on

The latest single from Jesse Rose, "Touch 'N' Tease" is out now. 






“The Grandma” was given to us just over a month before its release date. In fact, it may have been right around the week we announced the label. It took one play (and one legendary rewind) of the track on a Friday night for Jesse Rose to decide this HAD to be released.

Thus, IMIURU was born. The new project comes from the legendary house producer Junior Sanchez, who has played a major facet in the start of the A-SIDED. We need not speak much of Junior, whose heavy back catalog includes collaborations with the biggest names in house and electronic music and whose remix roster flexes everywhere from Daft Punk to Madonna to Jamiroquai. IMIURU is Junior’s fresh take on his classic and sought-after sound – and it’s a name seen exclusively at A-SIDED. “The Grandma” has all of the soul and contact of a classic house record, and peaks into a brilliantly-done breakdown that sees its freshness in 2015.

A-SIDED would like to introduce you to IMIURU, our newest artist to the label. 

A word from Jesse Rose: 
"What started out as a bit fun seemed to have become the anthem of this years Miami Music Week. Everywhere myself and the rest of the A-SIDED crew went, we kept hearing it being played, and every time I played it I nearly always ended up doing a rewind which I haven't done since I was about 16 playing drum & bass in my bedroom. By the time Miami was over, I knew we had something big on our hands and promptly announced to everyone in the A-SIDED office this had to be the next release. It normally takes a couple of months to get something out but this one is as fresh as it gets. It's cheeky and charming, was made in very little time but has the flavor in my ears of a House classic. Junior Sanchez under his new guise as IMIURU (said I AM I YOU ARE YOU) is about to show the house world what's up once again." 

Initial support from: DJ Sneak, Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong, Christian Nielsen, and more....
